Attendance During Distance Learning
Daily attendance is expected for all students. Student attendance will be taken based on a teacher's daily interaction with the student along with the student submitting their schoolwork on the online platform (Seesaw/Google Classroom). Interactions between a teacher and student include:
- Participating in a video class or chat.
- A phone call with the student, or for younger students, with the family.
