Welcome to 2nd Grade!!! We are so excited for all of the online learning adventures!
What is Synchronous Learning?
Synchronous Learning is learning that occurs in real time. Both the teacher and the students are online at the same time. Teachers may provide a mini lesson, demonstration, and/or problem for inquiry. It is not expected they are providing direct instruction for the entire synchronous learning block; they will support students as they interact with new learning and content. Attend class during their scheduled times. Engage in the learning during whole class and small group instruction. Complete learning tasks and/or assignments as instructed by the teacher.
For Asynchronous Learning Times (Wednesday's): Students are engaged in the learning activities or tasks the teacher has planne. Complete assignments or tasks in preparation for synchronous learning. Engage in small group instruction as determined by the teacher or team of teachers.

Attendance - Attendance will be taken twice daily just like a regular school year. The district student attendance policy will remain in place for the 2020-2021 school year. Absences due to a confirmed positive case, an exposure, isolation or under quarantine will be excused. These absences will not impact a student’s status within the spectrum of attendance proceedings.
If you have any questions/concerns please don’t hesitate to reach out as we know this can be tough to navigate. We will make ourselves as available as possible to ensure your students' success.
Our Digital Literacy Teacher, Carla Ronholdt, is also available for tech support at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will still be using Class Dojo to communicate with our families. Please talk to your child's teacher if you need help connecting to Dojo! https://www.classdojo.com/signup/
Your 2nd grader will be learning math from our Everyday Math program. These parent letters will help you stay connected with what you are learning, how to practice at home, and homework answers!:
