Living the Digital Learning Life
A Message from Ms. Waluzak, HS Principal
In light of Governor DeWine’s announcement to extend school closings until April 30th, 2020, ACPA staff is now preparing to continue the Digital Learning model during instructional days for the month of April. In the coming days and weeks, we will be continuing online instruction and adding greater programming to foster virtual community.
It is vital that your student has Internet access and a device for digital learning. We are here to support you. Please reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org if your student is having problems accessing their email, PowerSchool, or Google Classroom or if you would like more information on how to support your student’s education at home.
Here are several resources that parents, guardians, and students may find useful during this time:
1. Try setting up a school schedule together with your student. Many of the sample schedules available on the internet seemed geared towards elementary age. Click here to view a sample schedule that has been adjusted for high school students.
2. If your family needs assistance finding internet or your student needs to borrow a chrome book from ACPA to complete their digital learning assignments, please call or email us today. You can call the school 614-986-9974, or email email@example.com , firstname.lastname@example.org, and email@example.com. All students and families needing to borrow chrome book should arrange to pick one up as soon as possible and no later than April 3.
3. Students have been asked to do the following 5 things every digital learning day in order to be successful. You can support their learning from home by assisting them in developing these new habits:
Step 1 - Listen to the morning announcements.
Step 2 - Click on the attendance link in the announcements and submit the form in order to be counted as present for the day.
Step 3 - Check your artcollegeprep.org email for communications from ACPA staff.
Step 4 - Go to Google Classroom, check Digital Learning assignments from your teachers for today and get to work.
Step 5 - Email your teachers with shorter questions OR attend their posted office hours for longer questions or conversations about classwork.
