E-Learning Day FAQ

1. What is an E-Learning Day? An E-Learning day is used in place of a school day that has been cancelled due to inclement weather. An E-learning day means that students will complete learning activities and assignments provided by the teacher at home. Students will receive learning activities and assignments for each subject that would have originally taken place during a regular school day.

2. How will we be notified that a “snow day” is an E-Learning Day? The school will communicate to all parents and staff through JMC messaging center that is already utilized. In the message sent, it will read that this snow day is an E-Learning Day.

3. What about two hour late starts and when school closes early? Will those days be E-Learning Days? In the event of two hour late starts and early dismissals, an E-Learning Day will not be expected. Specifically, students and staff are typically either getting to school or going home during those school hours missed and assignments and activities are not expected for either students or staff.

4. What happens if a student does not complete the E-Learning assignment? Students will be expected to turn their work in on the following school day. However, students will be given up to three school days to turn in the assignment. Attendance for the E-Learning Day will officially be taken on the third school day following the E-Learning Day. If the assignments are turned in by the third school day, students will be considered present for the E-Learning Day. However, if the assignments are not turned in by that third school day, students will be considered absent for the E-Learning Day.

5. What if a student is on a pre-arranged absence? The student would be expected to make up the learning activities and assignments just as if it were any other absence from school.

6. Will the school building be closed on an E-Learning Day to students as it is on a regular snow day? Yes, the school district building will be closed to students and activities on E-Learning Days.

7. Will staff be accessible during an E-Learning Day? The teachers are expected to be contacted through their school email, which can be found on our school website or in the take home folders. You may contact the staff between 8:15 and 3:45. They will respond in a timely manner.

8. How will an E-Learning Day accommodate students with an IEP/504 Plan? On E-Learning Days, the classroom teacher will be the main contact on the assignments; however, the special education teacher will be available by email if the student needs help.
