With the rapid increase in hospitalizations and positive tests in the region, there is the potential for a number of HF-L staff and students to be quarantined in January. This makes it challenging to plan with certainty a January 4th reopening.

Therefore, the District is shifting to an asynchronous (full remote) learning day on January 4, 2021. This will allow the District to assess the status of students and staff and, hopefully, plan a January 5th return to its current in-school/hybrid learning model.

It is important for parents and students to understand that a remote learning day, is in fact a school day. Building principals will each be sharing a brief video this week to provide an outline of what parents should see children doing on January 4th.

Students, it is exceptionally important that you log-in and complete the assignments posted (every day).

During an asynchronous learning day, otherwise known as a remote learning day, staff will be required to report to work where they will be given the opportunity to plan curriculum and collaborate with colleagues. There will also be professional development opportunities available to staff if they choose. Students will have assignments posted online for them to complete during the asynchronous day. There will be no live instructional classes on this day as students will be expected to work independently.

Asynchronous learning days are designed with both the students and teachers in mind. These days provide the opportunity for teachers to catch up on their professional obligations while students complete meaningful assignments at home. 

For all:

· Staff comes to school unless otherwise directed by the superintendent.

· Activities posted within Seesaw or Schoology, in alignment with previously stated expectations.

· Completion of the SEL survey to verify attendance

At K-5:

· Families should plan for 2-3 hours of activities for reading and math

· Specials will continue based on letter day and should be planned for

At 6-12:

· Students should expect 30 minutes of work per class

· Activities posted within Schoology, in alignment with previously stated expectations.

· Completion of the SEL survey to verify attendance

· Specials will continue based on letter day and should be planned for

Three other asynchronous learning days were added to the District’s calendar that include January 29, March 15, and April 30. On asynchronous learning days, parents will need to make accommodations for the care of their children.

Families that would like meals for pick-up on asynchronous learning days should place their orders with the online system as they would on regular instructional day. Please be sure to choose the remote pick up location and not the school that your child attends.

For any questions regarding the District’s asynchronous learning day please contact your child(ren)’s building principal.
