Welcome to "The Eagle Flyer"; Your one-stop information station.

WELCOME BACK! While we know things look very different to the start of this school year, we are excited and looking forward to making 2020-2021 one to remember! We cannot wait to welcome in our new 6th grade class and new students to the Eagle community face to face. In the meantime, we are committed to providing your child with the same great education remotely that they received in person.

Please do not hesitate to contact the school for any questions or concerns while our students are learning witihin any of our phases. Our office will be staffed Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. to answer questions and provide you with the resources you may need.

PHASE 1: QUARTER BLOCK SCHEDULE & WEEKLY SCHEDULE

We are working to support all student situations, and family complexities. While we have both synchronous and asynchronous learing times scheduled, we know this could be difficult for some students. We have adjusted some practices, and our schedule, to try to support as many students as possible. If you know that your student's situation prohibits them from attending synchronous class sessions please reach out to their teacher.

One adjustment we are making is shifting to a teaching and learning practice commonly referred to as a flipped learning model. This model allows for flexibility as to when the students access the new learning and the practice, and then time with the whole class (synchronous) allows for additional support and re-teaching if necessary. If you would like for information on the flipped learning model, check out this introductory video. In the virtual learning model, the classroom is in reference to the scheduled, synchronous periods.

Students will follow this schedule Monday - Thursday during Phase 1 Remote Learning. Friday will be asynchronous (independent) learning.
Schedule that shows synchronous and asynchronous learning times. Friday will be all asynchronous learning unless otherwise specified by teacher.

REPORTING ABSENCES DURING VIRTUAL INSTRUCTION

Teachers will take attendance through Synergy in each synchronous class period. There is a new feature in ParentVue, so if you know your child will be absent you can go into ParentVue on the child's page and click on the Report Absence (blue tab with alarm bell). You are also welcome to call the attendance line at 970-488-6601.
