Student Expectations 
All virtual learning days count for student instructional days towards the 180 school day requirement. The following guidelines were developed to provide clear expectations for students on these days. 


  • Students are expected to log on to Google Classroom each day for each class to check for communication from their teachers, participate in lessons, and complete daily assignments. 

  • Student attendance will be taken based on their Google Classroom participation. Teachers will be monitoring the completion of student assignments. 

  • Students are expected to follow the schedule above and view pre-recorded lessons and/or participate in synchronous lessons and support sessions according to their schedule. Students are expected to put forth time and effort in assignment completion. Assignments should be submitted according to teacher deadlines. 

  • Students are expected to contact their teachers if they are having any issues. 

  • Students should check their school email several times a day: beginning of day, lunch time, and end of the day. Any emails sent to teachers or school personnel from students should come from a student's district email account. 

  • Students are expected to maintain the student code of conduct and academic integrity policies as outlined in the student handbook.
