PARENT ON LINE EXPECTATIONS

Virtual Office Hours 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM   (M - F)

Transitioning to digital learning is a huge shift for all of us – teachers, students, and parents. While we recognize that we cannot replicate the experience students would have in school, we believe learning can continue if we all work together.

 

REQUIRED FOR ALL PARENTS:  At times your child may have technical issues where they are unable to log on or complete an assignment.  In this situation, it is the parents responsibility to email Dr. Fatolitis ( fatollitisg@pcsb.org ) so an alternative can be sent to your child.  No explanation from a student will be accepted by this teacher. 

Below are some suggestions that will help your child to succeed in this new way of learning process.

  • Help your student establish a daily routine. We recommend maintaining as much of a regular schedule as possible. Include time for school, meals, physical activity, and down time. 

  • Identify a working space for your student. Some students may be able to work in their bedrooms, but most will need a clear separation between work and personal time. 

  • Ensure that your student has the technical tools they need.

  •  Check Canvas with your student. How often you check in is up to you! This will vary by student. As we begin this new learning environment, check in frequently, and then ease up when you feel you are able to.

  • Help your student reach out to teachers for support if needed. Students should use posted office hours first, and rely on email as a secondary support. We anticipate that teachers will receive an unusually high volume of email through this transition, and we encourage everyone to be as efficient as possible. 

  • Contact Dr. Fatolitis if your student is sick and unable to go on line to attend virtual learning.  Participation grades are given so if they do not log in, they will not get a grade (zero). State and school attendance policies apply during this period. Please note: attendance will be recorded every day.

  • Encourage your student to keep in touch  with friends and mentors. 

  • Take care of yourself! Give yourself, and others, some grace through this period.
