Remote Learn­ing

Elemen­tary school: Elemen­tary parents should plan to check their child(ren)’s PSL page by 8:30 each morning. Students in grades 1 – 6 will be assigned a minimum of 3.5 hours of learn­ing activ­i­ties each day. We will also be posting suggested activ­i­ties for our preschool and kindergarten students.

Middle and high school: Middle and high school students and fami­lies will receive a daily email with specific instruc­tions for the day. Students in the middle and high schools will be assigned 3.5 to 5 hours of work daily.

Tech­nol­ogy: Please ensure that you have a computer with reli­able access to the Inter­net. If this is not avail­able to your student, please contact Jason or Joel.

Report­ing attendance:

  • Elemen­tary school: We need to take atten­dance for our own records as well as report­ing to CAIS. For this current situ­a­tion, lead and assis­tant teach­ers will be taking visual atten­dance at the regular Zoom meet­ings that each class­room plans. This is a quick way to get a sense of who is present for the day. We recog­nize that not all students/​families partic­i­pate in these meet­ings for many reasons. Please let your lead/​associate team know if your child doesn’t partic­i­pate regu­larly but is engaged with the other types of learn­ing. As with regular atten­dance at school, please email Alexis as well as the lead/​associate teacher team should your child NOT be partic­i­pat­ing in the day’s activ­i­ties due to being ill or unavailable.
  • Middle/​high school: We need to take atten­dance for our own records as well as report­ing to CAIS. Teach­ers will be taking visual atten­dance during the required synchro­nous learn­ing times. If a student cannot make it for some reason, a parent or guardian should email Yanndery to report the absence.

Plea­sure reading: Although bricks & mortar libraries are closed to the public, free resources, activ­i­ties, and e‑books are avail­able online from Los Angeles Public Library, Pasadena Public Library, and L.A. County Library.
