E-Learning Information

During E-Learning days teachers and administrators will be check e-mail periodically throughout the day. We do not expect teachers or other staff members to be in constant communication throughout an E-Learning Day. Students who were locked out of coursework due to attendance will be able to request password resets on a “E-Learning Day” and that can be done by e-mailing his/her teacher. Staff e-mail addresses can be found here.

If school is cancelled, an announcement will be made via our electronic notification system. This system generates automated phone calls, e-mails and text messages to everyone enrolled.  When possible, students will be notified at school the day before forecasted conditions suggest the possibility of an E-Learning Day.

Attendance will be taken during the school day. First, each student is expected to log into their Edgenuity account before 8:30am to be counted as present. . Students who log in between 8:31am and 10:30am will be counted as tardy. Students who have not logged in by 10:30am will be counted as absent and will lose access to their coursework for the remainder of the day. Coursework expectations are to meet coursework goal and/or online for 5 hours.

Ideally, students are expected to meet their daily coursework goal. At minimum, students are expected to meet their coursework goal and/or work online for 5 hours.

Staff can be contacted between the hours of 8:00am – 3:00pm and can be reached via email or phone (contact information available on )
