Digital Learning Expectations
E-learning in the summer will have key differences to digital learning taking place during the regular school year. Since teachers and students have only one class, students are expected to be engaged in that course from 8-12:30 daily (8-11 for blended courses). Teachers will begin and end each day with a synchronous connection (Zoom meeting). Throughout the school day there will be a combination of synchronous engagement and student work time. Teachers will be available and present from 8-12:30 to provide instruction and assistance.
Summer School 2020 will be held at McHenry East Campus:
Students are encouraged to consider “getting ahead” of grade level requirements by taking certain courses to free up space in their schedules to explore other electives and programs. Here are the summer courses available for each grade level:
Students may register for bus transportation for a fee of $25 per session. Bus transportation will run each day during the six weeks of summer school. Stops will be neighborhood and regional stops similar to an activity bus. Exact bus locations will be communicated to those who register for busing prior to the start of summer school. Transportation requests must be completed by the course registration deadline.
Specific bus routes will be determined at a later date.
Detailed Chromebook information will be available at a later date.
We would like to thank everyone for your patience and would like to inform you about some important driver education decisions that were made. We are committed to making sure that students who were enrolled in semester 2 of the 19-20 school year are able to complete their behind the wheel (btw) hours as soon as possible. Please be on the lookout for an additional email coming from Mrs. Beattie/Mr. Caruso to explain these make ups. Summer school driver ed students. At this time we have decided to postpone session 1 of driver ed summer school. We are hoping new social distancing guidelines will be in place for July and we can host a large mega session at this time that will still cover the classroom and btw portions. This session would run 24 days from 6:30am-2:30pm. Please keep in mind just like what was explained for our traditional session a student would be responsible for a 90 minute classroom session everyday and a 90 minute btw session every other day. Mr. Caruso will be sending out a preliminary schedule. If you have a major conflict with the assigned time please contact Mr. Caruso so he can make a change. Furthermore in the event that social distancing guidelines are not lifted and we cannot run our mega session we are still committed to offering a digital driver ed classroom with the understanding that the btw portion will take place during the following school when btw is allowed to resume. If you have any further questions please contact Mrs. Beattie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As we prepare to begin behind the wheel instruction, we just want to make sure you know the safety precautions we will be following during this period:
Have a great day and we will see you at your scheduled time!
