|Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)|
Five-Week Online Learning For All Students
Do students have to attend class at their assigned time, or can they do the online-only learning at a time of their choosing?
Students MUST be present during their classes' assigned times. Attendance will be taken daily. Teachers will take attendance in Infinite Campus.
Yes. Teachers will design lesson plans for online-only learning similar to a traditional class period. During this time, teachers will give direct instruction, guided instruction, and time for students to practice independently and to ask questions.
How are teachers going to monitor participation during the online-only class?
Similar to a traditional class period, teachers will be engaging students to participate. For example, teachers may call upon students to share an answer to a prompt, demonstrate their process for solving a problem, share samples of their writing, etc.
How does my child join or access his/her classes?
Teachers will be sending out directions and invitations to your student's Hart District email account. It is critical your child logs into his/her account before the first day of school.
How can I help my child check to see if he/she knows their Hart District email and password?
An email will be sent requesting your student log into his/her account. This email will be sent both to the student's and parent's emails. If your child has forgotten his/her password, we will be sending a Google form out to request a password reset. If this is your child‘s case, it should be done as soon as possible.
Who should we contact if my family needs technology assistance?
Please email your school principal, assistant principal, counselor or social worker. Email addresses can be found on the school website.
How can my child get additional support if needed?
Within the first two weeks of school, we will communicate the additional supports available to students either through school interventions or individual teacher support.
Will student meals be available during the online-only period?
Students on the Free and Reduced Lunch Program can place orders for grab and go breakfasts and lunches. Meals can be picked up at multiple District sites between 12:00 pm and 2:00 pm on Tuesdays and Fridays. Click here for more information and to order meals.
How does my child make an appointment with his/her counselor?
Counselors will have a variety of ways to meet with your child including email, phone, or virtually. The Counseling Department will send out more information on how to set up an appointment in the very near future.
What will the schools do to engage students socially?
Teachers will be teaching “live” daily and will plan activities that will build relationships between students. ASB will be conducting a variety of online activities for students to participate in.
How will mental health services be delivered during online-only learning?
Similar to the closure last year, all mental health services will be delivered via Telehealth.
Can sports teams meet/practice during the online-only learning period?
While schools remain closed to in-person instruction, they may not be used for athletic programs. Athletes can do conditioning and skill-building activities only on an individual basis or with members of their immediate household, not with cohorts of students from different households (no small groups of students, even if outdoors at school).
Will we have Back to School Nights?
We will have Back to School Nights in some form.
Are the school campuses open during the period of online-only learning?
Visitors to the school other than parents of enrolled students will be limited to those who are essential for the school’s operation. Visitors will be by appointment only and are pre-registered in a visitor log that includes a visitor’s name, phone number, and email address. Screening will be conducted before visitors may enter the school. Screening will include a temperature check and check-in concerning cough, shortness of breath or experience of fever and any other symptoms the visitor may be experiencing.
