Possible Covid Impact


<< Back to DES News

Please see the message from Dr. Simmons regarding the possibility of short-term classroom/grade or school closures. Please note:

  • Teachers will post on their Google Classroom if the class will be synchronous (live instruction online) or asynchronous (assignments posted in Google Classroom).
  • Teachers will be taking attendance for synchronous classes just like they do for regular school days. Asynchronous class assignments will be used to record attendance for those classes. If a student is unable to log in for a synchronous class, the student should email the teacher requesting work so that the teacher knows the student is engaged in learning.
  • Students will follow the same class schedule as they do in person.

To prepare for the possibility of a virtual day:

  • Check that your child is bringing home their device each day.
  • Designate a space at home for your student to work with a power source nearby to charge the device.
  • If you do not have internet or your internet does not work well enough, please contact the Mr. Breedlove directly to ask about a Kajeet (hotspot) device.
