Students should start each class period by reviewing their teacher’s Google Classroom to see what activities have been assigned. If a student does not have access to their teacher’s Google Classroom, they will need to email their teacher(s) to get the code. Many teachers will choose to hold a “live event” at the beginning of the time associated with the period for their class (see above). This will be using Google Hangouts or other online video conferencing tools. Others may post a pre-recorded message or even email instructions. Although the introductory videos may be available after class time, it is expected that students will view/participate in those live classes as they happen. Following that, students will likely move at their own pace to complete daily, short-term assignments. Students may also be expected to complete and submit larger online activities/assignments by the beginning of the next class meeting for that particular course. Teachers will be available by email for office hours during the assigned times noted above.
Teachers will be taking attendance, noting whether or not students are participating and completing assignments during their assigned classroom time. Deadlines will be enforced during online days. Students are expected to complete all assignments on time, or reach out to their teacher directly if they have questions or need an extension.
Students will have access to additional academic intervention and support when needed. We will be establishing intervention specialists who will assist students with tutoring, as well as any technology issues that they may face. School Counselors will host office hours daily to address day-to-day issues, as well as continue working with our seniors as they approach graduation. In addition, counselors will provide additional offsite resources that will help students with any of their academic questions or needs.
Students and staff will likely require time to recover from the normal illnesses that occur every year, as well as potential COVID-19 related issues. Counseling, Nursing, and Administrative staff will work with parents, guardians, and students to help resolve any issues or provide any assistance we can. Teachers will be flexible with their response to students encountering such issues. We ask in the strongest terms that you communicate health issues to school administrators as soon as possible so we may provide appropriate support.
Special Education / 504s:
Over the last few days, we have received some guidance from the US and NH Departments of Education regarding special education services. Our Special Ed team met for most of the day to work on how best to support the needs of students with identified disabilities and 504 plans. Case Managers will communicate directly with students and parents to define these accommodations and modifications as the plans are finalized.
Other School Activities:
During the closure, all student activities are suspended. As we receive further guidance from the NHIAA and other organizations, we will update you all via Constant Contact messages.
One Final Note:
Even with a day to plan, there will no doubt be unanticipated items to which we must respond. No one knows for how long we will be away from school. The social and emotional health of our students was very much in our minds as we planned for the next few weeks and potentially beyond. Counseling, teaching, and administrative staff plan to reach out to specific students to support them during this time away from their home here on Danville Road. We will be available to talk, to listen, and even to laugh as we all share in what may be the most significant shift in our lives in our lifetimes. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you have ideas, concerns, questions, or anything else that comes to mind.
