distance-learning

Elementary School

Welcome to Eno River Academy’s K-5 Distance Learning Resource site designed to support our students, families and educators during distance learning (Plan C).

We believe that every student deserves access to rigorous, relevant and engaging learning opportunities. While we cannot replace the value of the teacher-to-student interaction in the classroom, we are working to provide meaningful and rigorous lessons for all students.  

Thank you for your support of your child(ren)s learning at home. Together we can ensure the success of our students!

Instruction for K-5:

Since instruction varies greatly in K-5, teachers will be communicating their plans directly with parents and students. Teachers will have weekly virtual check-ins, share resources, provide packets to be completed and even engage via their google classrooms (if applicable).

Here is a sample of the weekly learning schedule:

K-5 Remote Learning Schedules

Parent Tips for Distance Learning

Communication

❏ Teachers will maintain “remote” contact with all students to monitor student participation and progress.

❏ Teachers will provide a weekly calendar of their class schedule to assist you with your own planning.

❏ Classes will be recorded and shared with familes to assist with remediation or schedule conflicts.

❏ Students/parents should direct questions to teachers through school email.

How can I support my student as a remote learner?

❏ Familiarize yourself with your student’s distance learning opportunities via their classroom teacher’s emails , websites or google classrooms.

❏ Make sure your student participates in the MANDATORY Morning Meeting, independent study and reading time, and any collaborative time with classmates.

❏ Check your child’s remote learning programs (Google Classroom, Khan Academy, Flip Grid, etc) for supplemental learning assignments.

❏ Encourage students to do their best when completing supplemental learning opportunities.

❏ Remind students to self-advocate and communicate openly with concerns and needs during teacher check-in’s, if needed.

❏ Remind your student to take frequent breaks to stay focused.

❏ Find a dedicated workspace to maximize time on task and facilitate distance supplemental learning.

❏ Be patient. This is a challenging time for everyone. The goal is to support continued learning and not to mirror a traditional classroom setting.

Grading

❏ Teachers will focus on supporting student progress and communicating feedback to students and families but grades will be taken on assignments.

EC Services:

❏ Please be advised that services for students with additional staff support will mirror ERA’s abbreviated day schedule. Parents will be notified, as needed, with student-specific information.
