Week 12 update

Posted on: November 5, 2020

Hello- four items today:

1- Offline hours for week 12 are due by Sunday night.

2- Last week, we announced that the Monday and Tuesday before Thanksgiving would be calamity days for our school district, providing a 9-day separation break for students and staff.

Here's what you need to know about how this decision impacts Option 2 students:

  • There will be no hour requirements for week 15.

  • It may be possible for students to skip units in some courses.  Teachers will communicate to students and families about this.

  • It will not be possible to skip units in all courses.  High school science courses are a good example here.  In cases where skipping units isn't possible, students should transition to completing more than one unit in a day and accruing fewer offline hours.

  • Students who are not on-track with unit completion should use week 15 to continue to work to be caught-up.  Students using VLA should be submitting unit 12 this week unless a teacher has given different instructions, and students using PLP should check their course progress bars to ensure they are on-track.

3- I want to remind everyone that damage to Lebanon-owned chromebooks or hotspots is charged back to student fee accounts.  Please treat borrowed devices as if they were your own.  Thank you!  Below is a list of common charges for damage:

4- For students transitioning back to in-person instruction in January:

  • For students in grades 7-12, counselors will be working on schedules for students in the next few weeks.  Counselors will be working from course selection information from last spring.  If you have a specific question about a student's schedule, please email your student's counselor.
  • For students in grades K-6, building staff will be in touch with placement information closer to winter break.

Thank you,
