5th Grade Remote Learning Information

As many of you already know, our district is moving to remote learning as of Wednesday, April 1, 2020 in accordance with the State of Colorado due to COVID-19. This means that all teaching and learning will be done virtually. Our district has created an asynchronous learning model meaning "all students access and learn the same material, but do so at different times and from different locations. This approach does not require that the teacher and students be online at the same time."  Here are some answers to important questions:

Where will materials be posted?: Each week students and families will be sent a weekly learning board. All materials and lessons will also be posted on our 5th Grade Google Classroom. Students have been using this platform all year and should know how to use it.

How often will we post assignments and when are they due?: All materials for the week will  be posted/sent on Mondays and students will have until the following Monday to finish the work. This gives students flexibility in when they are able to complete the work. Since the first week starts on a Wednesday, students will be given work on Wednesday, April 1 and will need to complete it by Monday, April 6.

How will attendance be tracked?: Attendance will be tracked two ways! One way are the attendance google forms found on the top of the learning board. Secondly, attendance will be tracked based on the completion of weekly assignments. Students do not need to login every day but need to complete assignments by Monday. Failure to complete the attendance form and assignments with no communication will result in an absence. Please reach out if anything comes up that makes it difficult for your student to complete their assignments by Monday. We are very flexible and understanding! 

What are office hours and when will they be?: Office hours are a time when students or parents can reach out to teachers. We can help with any technology questions or assignments, but we are also here to help with anything you or your student needs. We are here for you! We are available over email or if you would prefer face-to-face, we can set up a Zoom meeting. We will host two hours of office hours every weekday at different times in order to accommodate as many schedules as possible! 

How will assignments be graded?: Coming soon!
