Monday will be a big day for all of us!  It is our official launch of Virtual Learning!!!

We understand there are and will be frustrations, anxiety, and other emotions tied to this new experience and that is okay and expected.  We will get through this together. Please reach out to your teachers with questions and concerns as it is our goal to make this as positive of an experience as it can be under the circumstances.

Monday & Tuesday 

  • Core teachers are on the schedule to host live sessions. (Check the schedule to know which courses at what time and then go to that course’s platform - either Canvas or Google Classroom from there you will see a link for the live session)

  • All teachers will host office hours. If you need individual help this is the perfect time to contact your teachers to get that help. 

Wednesday & Thursday

  • Elective teachers are on the schedule to host live sessions during their respective periods.

  • Core teachers are available to students and some will host live sessions during their respective periods. 

  • All teachers will host office hours. If you need individual help this is the perfect time to contact your teachers to get that help.

  • All teachers will host office hours.If you need individual help this is the 

  • perfect time to contact your teachers to get that help.

If the weekly schedule does not work for you during this unusual time, please contact your teachers to arrange times to meet and continue your learning. 

  1. Attendance

Attending live sessions is not the only way students can be counted as present in the virtual learning setting.  Teachers will be collecting attendance information based on engagement. This includes handing in assignments, contributing to discussion threads, reaching out to teachers via email and other options.  The live sessions are a part of the learning, they are highly encouraged, but students are not penalized if they cannot attend at the scheduled time. 

  1. Credit for Courses

  • At this time, all work assigned virtually counts towards course credit. Teachers will be collecting work and taking grades.  We have asked teachers to require no more than 30 minutes per course per day. This means 3 - 4 hours of school work each day.  

  • Work assigned during the two weeks prior to Spring Break may now be assigned as a part of the course grade.  Teachers will give students 10 school days to complete the work before entering grades. For students who did the work already, it’s one less thing to worry about. 

  • We understand that these are difficult times and encourage communication in regards to the expectations. We want to work with students and families while maintaining the integrity of learning. 

  1. Technology Support

Device repair services will be provided curbside @ BHS front entrance from 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM,  M-Fri the week of 4/6.  

We will evaluate this process next week and see if we need to extend hours.  If we are unable to resolve the issues within 10 minutes we hope to swap out the device for a working device or provide a loaner.
