A full time in-person and online education is being offered to students and the students are expected to commit to their chosen plan for the trimester.
“When we do return, parents will have the option of full time online education or face-to-face education for four days per week–Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday,” SPS interim-superintendent Greg McMillan said. “Wednesday will be a day the staff will be on site working on lesson plans for in-school & virtual instruction and possibly attending grade level and/or staff meetings, etc. It will also be a day of thorough cleaning and disinfecting across the school district and buses.”
According to SPS’s “COVID-19 Preparedness and Response Plan,” online learning will be using virtual platforms like Moodle, Schoology, Google Classroom, Seesaw, Michigan Virtual, Board Works, and Freckle among others and the district will be providing devices and several wifi-hotspots around the area. Students may also contact the technology department for assistance if they are unable to access wifi from their homes or the wifi-hotspots.
Other instructional materials like pencils and papers will be made available to parents who don’t have theses items. The schools will also be providing a virtual schedule to the families.
Students will have access to their grade-level resources and be expected complete their work by the expected due date of each assignment, keep in consistent contact with their teachers, and fully participate in their school work. The students are also expected to practice appropriate school citizenship, dress for school and choose appropriate environments when connecting online, and display school appropriate behaviors
Teachers are expected to keep contact with their students, be it through online mediums or phone calls and text messages.
As for in-person learning, staff and students must wear masks on the bus, in the indoor hallways and common areas, and in the classrooms. Masks will be available at schools and on buses.
Cleaning supplies and handwasing and/or sanitizing stations will be present within the schools. Staff will monitor when items run out and will monitor students to make sure they are following protocols.
Custodial staff will do a deep clean of the buildings throughout the week with additional deep cleaning procedures occurring on Wednesdays and Fridays.
Students will be returning for their first full day on Monday, Aug. 31. For more information, visit shepherdschools.net.
