Distance Learning Plan Prep School

Learning Continuance for the Prep School with e-learning

Schooling is always a partnership in an online Distance Learning environment, especially so at the Prep School Level where this partnership becomes the champion of learning. Over the course of this Distance Learning time period, our staff will partner with parents to engage students in experiences that stretch their understanding and expand how they approach new learning.

Teachers will continue to carry forward their instrumental role in guiding, supporting, and challenging students to take on new responsibilities and to become excited about new learning. Our families will have options and sources for flexibility that will give them choice and ownership as the Distance Learning experience progresses.

Teachers will communicate with parents through email and will use Seesaw/One Note, along with other online platforms, to engage students in rich learning tasks. All Prep School Teachers will also invite students to optional interactive synchronous lessons.
