eLEARNING Schedule

This coming week teachers will communicate an instructional plan and a schedule of his or her office hours to you. Please be patient with them as we work to get better at providing access to learning opportunities for students and families. Your teachers will be available during office hours and on email and messaging apps that they already use to deliver information and content.

Monday (3/30/20) will be a waiver day for students, so there will be no lessons or learning opportunities sent to families. Beginning on Tuesday, March 31 through Friday, April 3, teachers will push out learning opportunities to families each day and be available for identified office hours.

Beginning the week of April 6, new learning opportunities will be made available for students and families on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. No new content/opportunities will be pushed out on Wednesdays, but teachers will maintain office hours that will be communicated to you by your teacher.

Food Service: Meal Kits

For the time being, this service will continue on Mondays. Please see the flier below for more information on this opportunity for GC families.

School Counselor Connection

The days ahead can be improved by setting a schedule and consistent routine. Work together and plan some fun days ahead.

  1. Work together to determine a schedule that fits your family's needs.
  2. Have clear instructions and expectations.
  3. Assign your child tasks that they are capable of doing.
  4. Write down routines. Make a sequence of tasks. Post it where it is easily visible. Pictures may help.
  5. Set realistic time expectations.
  6. Be patient. It takes time to create healthy habits.
  7. Praise effort (not just results).
  8. Build in free/down time as part of the routines.
  9. Don't give up and have fun!
