ZOOM STUDENT EXPECTATIONS
- We want to reiterate a few expectations we have for any of our students when they’re e-learning, whether for the long-term, a quarantine or a junior high short-term absence:
- Students must use their real names for their Zoom accounts, so we know who they are.
- Students must dress in school-appropriate clothing when on Zoom calls (no pajamas or inappropriate clothing).
- Students may not eat while on a Zoom call, just as they wouldn’t if they were in-person learning.
- Students must have their cameras ON when participating in a Zoom call with their class.
- We are aware that some students are trying a trick in which they change their background to a loading screen and their name to “loading”, as if they are trying to connect to the internet in order to not participate in class. This is unacceptable and will result in consequences if it continues.
- Open zoom.us.
- Don't "sign in." Instead, go to "JOIN".
- You will be asked for "MEETING ID." Enter your meeting ID code. If you get past step 3 to step 4, your meeting ID is correct.
- You'll get a pop-up message that reads, "Open zoom.us." Click on that button.
- It might take a second, then it will ask you to "Enter Meeting Password." That's where you enter your case sensitive password if your teacher has one. If after this point, you cannot get into your meeting, your password might be incorrect. Be sure you are typing it exactly.
- All Zoom passwords are case sensitive. Please make sure your caps lock isn't on, and that you're typing the password exactly.
- You might not be completely logged off from your last Zoom session. Try restarting your computer to ensure you're completely logged off.
INDEPENDENT INSTRUCTION/PARENT SUPPORT:
We encourage students to participate in their Zooms and live instruction independently. While we value parent input, we strongly recommend that all our e-learners wear headphones for all live instruction, as it helps them to focus and hear what’s going on in their classroom more effectively. Once students are online, connected to their classroom and understanding their daily schedule, it shouldn’t be necessary for parents to participate with them aside from occasional check-ins. Additionally, teachers put a lot of effort into planning each day’s lessons, and often don’t have the opportunity to deviate from this due to unplanned parent participation.
We also want to be clear that morning meetings are NOT optional for e-learners, and that attendance will be taken each day. Students are expected to be present and participating, with their video on during each class, as teachers will include them in the discussion and ask them questions as they would if they were in-person learners.
Students need to take all tests/assessments independently (i.e. without parent help and without their textbooks, online searches, etc). We understand that all parents want their children to do well; just as in school, though, students need to show what they know on their own so teachers have an accurate picture of what areas they are excelling in and where they may be struggling in order to best challenge and/or support them. We thank you for your support as we navigate e-learning together!
To answer your tech and e-Learning questions more efficiently, we have added a new Tech Hotline phone number. For assistance with technology or e-learning, please call or text (773) 937-6402 and Mrs. Davies will answer during school hours, 8am-3pm Monday-Friday. After those hours, please email her at [email protected]
If you have non-emergency questions about Google Classroom or Gmail, you may also contact Ms. Foyle via email at [email protected]
e-LEARNING FOR SHORT-TERM ABSENCES:
e-Learning is provided to those families who have selected it as a long-term option, and not for short-term absences. e-Learners have an adapted schedule that is slightly different than in-person learners to accommodate for routines that take place only in person. In order for e-Learning to be successful for younger students, it requires active support from parents and the school’s technology director including, but not limited to: having the appropriate schedule, e-Learning Google Code, links and an understanding of Zoom expectations. In the event a younger learner is quarantined or ill for an extended period of time, we will work with the child’s family and extend e-Learning. If a Preschool-5th grader is absent, we ask that the child’s parent connect with their teacher regarding absent work; work packets or books may be sent home/picked up or activities may be scanned to a parent at a time convenient for the teacher.
Due to our junior high students being 1:1 with iPads as well as being more independent and well-versed in Zoom, a junior high student may utilize e-Learning when they are ill. The junior high student’s parent must notify their child’s teacher(s) directly to make appropriate arrangements.
