E-Learning or Snow Days - What you need to know At the start of inclement weather we discuss the use of E-Learning Days and Snow Days. At last night's Board Meeting, Mrs. Empen discussed the reasoning behind when each day is utilized. The information below explains for parents, guardians, students, staff, and the community the District plans moving forward when having to decide how to proceed if and when inclement weather arrives. E-Learning Days: An e-learning day will be utilized districtwide when there is enough advanced notice that teachers can prepare appropriate learning materials for students to work on while at home. For students in grades Pre-kindergarten through grade 5, learning packets will be sent home with students in anticipation of an e-learning day. Pre-kindergarten through grade 5 students will utilize Seesaw for e-learning days as well. For students in grade 6-12, lessons and Zoom/Teams meeting times will be uploaded in Canvas prior to the 7:45 a.m. start time. E-learning days do not require adding additional days to the end of the school year. Snow Days: A snow day will be utilized districtwide when there is not enough advanced notice for teachers to prepare appropriate learning materials for students to work on from home. When a snow day is called, students and teachers are not in attendance. Snow days are required to be made up utilizing the emergency days added to each year’s school calendar. I will utilize our automated call and text system to announce plans on inclement weather days. Please make sure that phone numbers are updated in Lumen to ensure you receive the call or text. We will continue to notify local radio stations, television stations, our website and social media pages when inclement weather arises. The fastest way to receive inclement weather information is through our automated call and text system.
