Lakeview eLearning: A Guide for Students and Parents
Currently, our main priority is the well-being of our students. We recognize the start of the school year has been quite a transition, for both students and teachers alike. We hope the following practices will support students during their eLearning days:
- Content will be provided in kid-friendly language and terminology
- Resources (videos, forms, etc.) will be hyperlinked into teachers' Google Classrooms
- Specific directions/instructions will be provided

- Wake up, get dressed, have breakfast

As you are working:
- Answer any starter or "ticket out the door" questions
- Pace yourself and do not rush to complete each assignment.
- If you finish classwork early, move on to the next class or take a brain break
- If you get frustrated with an assignment, stop, move on to another task and come back to it later
- Find a classmate or friend to help you
- Email your teach via Gmail or Google Classroom if you need additional help
- Write down teacher office hours so you know when to ask for help during the day
Grading will follow the normal weights and percentages for both face-to-face and eLearning. Students should access lessons and assignment through Google Classroom using their student firstname.lastname@example.org account. Teachers, counselors and administrators will be monitoring student engagement and participation and will make contact with any student who has not been online or in contact with their teachers.
