Middle school students are typically independent learners skilled in the use of technology, but they may still need assistance as students return to remote learning. You play an important role in this remote school environment. The logistics of learning – typically handled in the classroom – will be more challenging.
However, you’re not alone. Your child’s teachers are your best source of support and guidance. Stay in communication and reach out for assistance. We’re adjusting our support services constantly to meet the needs of every student.
Classrooms and Technology
Each student will receive a school-issued device (Chromebook or laptop) to access their teacher Google Classroom websites and attend Zoom meetings. Students in grades 6-8 log in to this device using a school-issued Google username and password. This same information will provide access to their classroom.
Schedules, Assignments, and Office Hours
Woodbury's remote learning schedule will mirror in-school structure with an alternating day (blue/white) schedule. Typically days will alternate between live Zoom instruction and lab work in specific core subjects beginning at 7:30 am. Afternoons allow time for small group work or independent activity of the student's choice.
Your student will access a number of Google Classrooms specific to the four core subject areas along with any Unified Arts courses. Many students have been working in Classroom for some time, thus, are familiar with the learning process. Yet others may be seeing this for the first time. Classrooms typically provide an activity "Stream" as your default view, listing teacher posts in a sequential manner. Clicking the "Classwork" view option will show content organized within topical categories.
Your team of remote teachers is your best source of information along with a weekly parent update posted to the remote learning websites.
