Provisional Remote Learning 
UPPER Division

Park’s Provisional Remote Learning Policy supports students who will be absent for reasons related to the pandemic. It does not provide accommodations for non-pandemic family choices, such as long weekend travel or appointments. Park expects students to be engaged in learning at all times when able, while school is in session.

 

If your child will be home ill, The Park School does not expect your child to engage in learning.

If your child is a full-time remote learner this year, please continue remote learning as it has been designed for your child and anticipate an update to this policy that will include full-time remote learners.

What Can You Expect for Your Child in Grade 5:

If your child is home due to attestation results, yet is healthy to participate in learning, they are eligible to participate in remote learning beginning on the second day of their absence. 

  • Please email remotelearning@parkschool.org so that arrangements can be made for remote learning to start on the second day of your child’s absence. 

    • The fifth grade Remote Learning Coordinator (RLC) will provide students with a full day’s learning schedule to begin on the second day that includes a combination of synchronous sessions for learning, asynchronous materials for independent work, and opportunities for 1:1 check-ins. 

      • The remote learning schedule, which will include all Zoom links.

      • Asynchronous materials will be posted on Google Classroom under the topic, For Remote Learners.

      • Please respond to your child’s RLC with questions about their schedule and/or tasks. 

What Can You Expect for Your Child in Grades 6-8:

If your child is home due to attestation results, yet is healthy to participate in learning, they are eligible to participate in 100% remote learning beginning right away.

  • Please email your child’s advisor and remotelearning@parkschool.org to inform them of the absence.
     

  • Your child should email their teachers to notify them of their absence as soon as possible. 

  • On the first day of the absence, students should follow directions provided by their teachers, which may include joining class via Zoom. 

  • On the following days of the absence, teachers will have posted learning experiences by class in their Google Classroom. Because teachers’ instructional approaches will vary from day-to-day, this may include:

    • A link to join the class, or the portion of a class, via Zoom

    • An instructional video + task

    • Asynchronous tasks posted on Google Classroom

    • A video recording of the in-person class or a portion of the in-person class

  • The advisor will provide a 1:1 check-in daily.
