  • How is attendance taken?:  Attendance is taken by completion and submission of eLearning Day assignments. Assignments are due on the 3rd school day after the eLearning day by 8AM
  • What do you do if you don’t have WiFi?: With the release of the assignments prior to the eLearning day, we ask parents to try to find open WiFi hotspots like local libraries and other locations around town.  If this is not an option, students will be allowed to stay after school for an hour and a half on the two days following an eLearning day in a location designated by the building to work on eLearning day materials.  Students may not work on eLearning assignments during the normal school days following an eLearning day as this is seen as double dipping by the DOE.
  • What devices are compatible with the eLearning day?:

    • PC - Windows 7 and Higher. We recommend always using the latest version of the chrome browser

    • Chromebook
    • Android Tablet - running Android 4.4 KitKat OS or higher. Must support latest version of Chrome
