In this remote world and with winter weather coming, we are bound to encounter days when a family’s or teacher’s power/internet goes out. While technology is a wonderful tool it can also be frustrating so we want to have a plan a head of time in case your student or class encounters this issue. Your classroom teacher has probably already shared this information with your student and we wanted to be sure everyone was prepared.
If a teacher’s power/internet goes out during a class zoom meeting:
Students stay on the zoom call for 2-3 minutes in the hopes the power (and teacher) is able to log back on quickly.
After about 3 minutes, students should sign off the call and continue working asynchronously. This work may include: iReady, Lexia, math problem set, incomplete work and/or silently read. The teacher/office will send an email to the families when their power/internet has returned, notifying the students to return to the next live lesson.
Students should still go to their specialist classes (music, PE, Library) and any intervention small group classes such as LRC, Speech, Reading Club, ELL, etc. at their designated time.
If a student’s power/internet goes out at home during a class zoom meeting:
Please send an email or call if/when possible, to the teacher and/or office to let us know so that we know why your child missed class.
Once your power is restored, student should join the class zoom if applicable, and watch any recorded lessons they missed.
Watching recorded lessons and completing any work will change the absence to present
