Guidelines for Remote Learning

Guidelines for Remote Learning Week of 11-30-2020 to 12-4-2020

From Monday 11-16 to Wednesday 11-25, students will be taking
hard cover books, workbooks, and notebooks home in preparation for
the week of remote learning.

1) Students should already be members of each subject’s Google
Classroom. They were signed up in September. This includes specials
2) We will be using a half day schedule. Classes will begin at 8:15 am.
We will change classes on the half and the three quarter hour.
3) By 8:10 students should sign into whatever class their homeroom
teacher designates so we can take attendance.
4) At 8:15 students should join Google Meet for their first class. All they
need to do is go to the class and click on the link for Google Meet.
5) We will end classes a few minutes early so students can log out of the
class that is ending and sign into the next class.
6) In the afternoon from 1:00 to 2:00 the teachers will be available for
extra help.
8A – log into 8A Social Studies – Mr. Kozdemba
8B – log into 8B ELA – Mrs. Canal
7A – log into 7A Science – Mr. Puzio
7B – log into 7B Religion – Mrs. Guerra
6A – log into 6A Science – Mrs. Vasil
6B – log into 6B Science – Mrs. Alberti
5A – log into Social Studies – Mrs. Rooney
5B – log into 5B ELA – Mrs. Klein

Because we were remote at the end of last year, we are looking
forward to a smooth transition.
If you need further clarification, email your child’s homeroom
teacher. If there are many of you with questions, we’ll have a Zoom
meeting this Thursday 11-19-2020 at 6:30 pm. Otherwise, we will
handle your individual questions. If we are having a Zoom meeting we
will contact you with the particulars.

  5. Lockers will be assigned and space will be given for social distancing.  There will be no lingering at lockers.  Students will put only their jackets and book bags in the locker.  Lunch boxes will be placed on top of locker.  Snack and water should be brought into class and put in desk.  Please make sure water bottles are tightly closed as to avoid spillage.
  6. Lunch seats will be assigned for all students.
  7. There is no sharing of any supplies or snacks.  Please make sure you have pens, pencils, erasers, markers, highlighters, etc.
  8. All textbooks, workbooks, and notebooks must be labeled with student’s name and grade.
  9. Students must bring a book to read.  They will not be allowed to use classroom libraries.
  10. Before Monday 9/14, students must have decided on their learning style: in class, remote, or hybrid.  These styles will be mandatory for the first trimester.  If a student has chosen hybrid, the teachers must be informed of the specific days the student will be in/out.  This also will run for the first trimester.

As always if you have any questions or concerns please contact me.
