Changing to Remote Learning

As we watch the rise in COVID cases, the question of if we will have to shift to 100% remote learning is on everyone’s mind. At this point, there are no directives for 100% remote learning; however, we know how quickly this can change. As a school, we are prepared to pivot between in-person and remote learning and want to make sure our Lumberg families are also. If your student is an in-person learner, please consider the following to allow for an easier transition to remote, if and when this takes place.

Transition to Remote

If we are directed to move to remote learning, the following schedule will apply:

Day One of Remote Learning – Non-contact day for students

If we have adequate time and know ahead of time, student supplies will be sent home on the last day of in-person learning. However, if this is not possible, teachers will need to gather supplies and materials to send home. By 2:00 pm on “Day One”, students’ supplies will be outside classroom doors, organized in boxes by teacher name, for families to pick up. Teachers and staff will use this day to ready supplies and plan for remote learning and it will be a non-contact day for students. Please look for communication from your child’s teacher on this day about schedules and expectations for remote learning.

*If students are already 100% remote, please look for a communication from their teacher about the schedule for this day.*

Day Two of Remote Learning – Learning begins 

All students are online and learning remotely.

Schedule

We have learned that students do best when their schedule remains as normal as possible, so a remote day of learning will align to what students are used to in-person. A 100% remote schedule will include both synchronous and asynchronous learning times. Teachers will be teaching live on-line lessons throughout the day and students will be expected to be logged on at specific times. Teachers will communicate directly with parents and students about the specifics of their schedule. It is important that students have a system in place to help them be on time for lessons so we can maximize learning. You may want to consider posting your child’s daily schedule in your home, a checklist with lessons and times, or using a timer to ensure your child is online with his/her teacher when teaching is taking place.

Attendance

Our expectations for attendance and engagement are similar for both in-person and remote learning. To be considered present, students need to be logged in to the virtual classroom and engaged in the learning. If your child will be absent for the day, or any part of the day, please call Lumberg’s attendance line. Unexcused absences will be marked as such. An attendance policy will be shared with you.

Special Areas (Art, Music and P.E. Crew)

Specials are an important part of student learning and students will be expected to participate in these lessons. Please look for communication from your child’s teacher for the specific schedule if we move to remote learning.

Student Learning Expectations

As we learned in the spring, it is important to maintain the feel of school, even while remote learning. A successful day of remote learning starts with:

  • Getting up at the normal time, eating breakfast, and getting dressed in school appropriate clothes

  • Arriving on time to class

  • Having all materials nearby

  • Having a workspace (not laying on a bed/couch)

  • Minimizing distractions such as toys, televisions, and other distractions

Internet Access

Reliable internet is essential for a successful remote learning experience. Families without internet access are encouraged to sign up for Comcast Essentials.

  • Cost is $9.95/month + tax; no contracts required.
  • The first two months are free.
  • No credit checks; previous debt to Comcast does not disqualify a family

If you are unable to receive internet access through Comcast’s program, please contact us.
