In order for teachers to prepare quality instruction during remote learning days, teachers will be participating in remote learning planning days every Wednesday, beginning April 8th. These days are designed to give teachers time to prepare lessons as well as to improve their remote teaching skills and work collaboratively with one another. These days are also designed to allow students to stay on track to earn course credits by working on assignments and completing activities for their classes with no new assignments on these days. Teachers can still be contacted regarding your child’s progress on these remote learning planning days; however, regularly scheduled remote learning will not be conducted and attendance will not be taken. This means that teacher responses to emails may be delayed until the following day.
There is currently a lot of discussion in the county about grades and what student requirements are during remote learning days. This is in part because different schools in the county have different policies and processes. At MCHS, students are REQUIRED to participate in remote learning day activities and must complete assignments for classes to earn credit. If students do not participate or complete assignments during eLearning, they will be at risk of receiving an INCOMPLETE for the semester and will have to make up work or demonstrate their understanding of specific information to have the incomplete removed from their record. In some instances, students may need to repeat classes if they fall behind in their learning. Please know that MCHS staff are always here to help students be successful in their courses, and we rely on parent and guardian assistance to ensure that students stay focused on their classes during these challenging times. Together we can minimize any negative impact on our students educational opportunities and ensure their future success.
