The morning Tutorial sessions will involve teachers assisting and supporting students with the work that has been already taught or assigned through the Home Learning Opportunities. Students will be required to pre-register for these Tutorial sessions with their classroom teacher. Tutorials will have up to 15 students (or 50% of the maximum class size) scheduled during each session, as managed by the teacher.
The schedule for Tutorial sessions to be organized by teachers will take place Mondays thru Thursday:
Block A class tutorials: 9:15 – 10:00am
Block B class tutorials: 10:05 – 10:50am
Block C class tutorials: 10:55 – 11:40am
Block D class tutorials: 11:45 – 12:30pm
There will be a lunch break from 12:30 – 1:15pm. Students will be required to leave the building, and sign-out at the main entrance.
Afternoon Home Learning Opportunities
The afternoon Home Learning Opportunities will follow this rotation:
1:15 – 2:15pm
No scheduled classes.
2:30 – 3:30pm
Students indicating they would like to remain onsite during the afternoon Home Learning Opportunities, will be required to report to the library or the computer lab in room 261. These areas will be supervised by non-enrolling teachers and CEA’s. Please note: students on a study block and wanting to remain at the school, are to report to the library.
We hope this email finds you and your family safe and healthy. These truly are extraordinary times. We are hopeful you have received and read over the letter from the district, explaining what ‘Learning from Home’ will look like moving forward.
At SAS, our teachers have been assigned to a group of students to contact this week. These conversation will be to check in, and to gather important information our school and district requires for planning purposes.
You can expect a phone call during one of these time slots:
Tuesday (2 – 4pm),
Wednesday (12 – 2pm),
Friday (8 – 10am or 2 – 4pm).
If teachers cannot reach you, they will attempt to leave a message and call you back at another time. Please note, because of the technology we are using, your call display may show “No Caller ID” or “Private Caller”.
We know many of you have questions related to course work, assessment, graduation, scholarships, and access to the school… to name just a few. Please be patient as we develop and implement plans for our new reality. We will continue to use our website to post general information. You can also expect to receive phone calls or emails when we have important updates or specific information to share.
