4U Fridays Begin Oct 2

Hello Seward Families,

Beginning this Friday, October 2nd, we will not have live classes on Fridays.  Students will have additional time to complete work from the week. In addition, specialist classes and assignments (music, science, PE, art, media and health) will be presented asynchronously via video.  Teachers will be available to answer questions and provide extra academic support for students on these days. Additionally, Associate Educators will provide tutoring and live help session. Attendance will be taken with a check in activity.

The reasons for this include:

  1. Students having opportunities to complete work from the week
  2. Our staff deciding to focus on giving meaningful feedback and teaching students what to do with it.  We are better able to do this when we have adequate time to review student work.
  3. This also allows teachers the opportunity to collaborate and plan for student achievement.
  4. Lastly, concerns about extended screen time and screen fatigue

MIDDLE SCHOOL
