Distance Learning FAQ:

posted Mar 23, 2020, 1:47 PM by Beth Dean   [ updated Mar 26, 2020, 2:28 PM by Robert Lindner ]

We'd like to thank you all for your support and flexibility as teachers and students are getting used to our distance learning model. We understand that this is a challenging time because of concerns about how the coronavirus may impact our community and loved ones around the country and due to the fact families are entering a new educational landscape. We want you to know that our building staff remains ready to support students from afar. Here are some common questions and answers that may help as we navigate this unfolding situation.

Q: Is school still in session?

A: Yes, students continue to be in school just not physically present. Lessons are being provided remotely through Schoology or, in some cases, packets were and will be provided from the office. Every student should have a school issued Chromebook or personal device to complete these lessons. Students are still expected to continue their studies and be in contact with their teachers regularly by email.

Q: When will students return to school?

A: The earliest return date will be April 20. School will open on April 7 to allow students to turn in physical work and get the next set of lessons and assignments if you do not have internet access.

Q: Schoology is difficult to use, what can I do?

A: It is recommended students/families use the website version rather than the app. There are also help videos posted on our school technology site http://sh.lposd.org/technology which may help. Many teachers are using the “Updates” feature to post assignments and communicate with students. Another helpful site is http://techtraining.lposd.org/home/remote-learning-for-students which will have several videos on technology teachers are tyring to use.

Q: What if my child cannot make teacher deadlines/due dates or meet their expectations?

A: Please encourage them to work daily and keep up the best they can at this time. Communicating with their teacher is really important so encourage them to email their teacher with questions and just to make a connection. We are still working out how to best provide distance education to students. We will all need to be flexible and work with students and families to ensure ample opportunity is given to all students during this time. In most cases, deadlines and due dates will be extended after we return to school and opportunities will be given for students to make up assignments or complete alternatives.

Q: Are school events getting cancelled or postponed?

A: Yes, any event occurring before April 20 will be cancelled or postponed. Events planned after April 20, such as Prom, will be postponed until further clarification comes from the State Board of Education and the State of Idaho concerning best practices.

Q: I don’t have the internet, what should I do?

A: There are options:

  1. Physically printed materials were available and another set will be available April 7 from the office.

  2. You can use one of the many free Wifi options available in the area such as the school’s hotspot from the parking lot which has recently been improved.

Q: I have questions that were not answered in this FAQ, what can I do?
