Remote Learning During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Updates

  • Welcome Back!

    Posted by Michael Hildt on 9/1/2020

    AIHS will begin the school year in remote learning along with the rest of the district.

    A "Meet and Greet" day is scheduled for Monday, September 14th to give students the opportunity to come in to the school to meet their teachers. A schedule and details will be emailed to each family. Appropriate COVID-19 safety protocol will be in place.

    The first day of classes will be on Tuesday, September 15th. Remote learning will look significantly different this fall. Students will follow a regular schedule which is typically 4-5 classes per day. There will be a mix of online as well as physical assignments. Students will come to the school weekly to pick up and drop off work. In some cases students with disabilities will meet with teachers in person following stringent safety guidelines.

    Remote learning expectations and class schedules are posted below.

    Please refer to the Amesbury Public Schools website and social media pages for updates on transitions to hybrid and in-person learning.

  • 3 WAYS TO ACCESS YOUR CLASSES DURING COVID-19 REMOTE LEARNING:

    1.) E-Mail

    Students should check their school G-Mail account daily. They will get important messages from your teachers, assignment updates, and invitations to Google Meet sessions. Email is the best way to reach your teacher. A directory is available on this page.

     

    2.) Google Classroom

    Students have Google Classrooms for all of their classes. Teachers will post assignments as well as other information. If you are unsure what you have missed look through the Stream and check the Classwork top tab. Most assignments are posted at the beginning of the week and are due at the end. Posting comments and questions shows engagement and is highly encouraged. Don't forget to *Turn In* assignments!

     

    3. Google Meets

    Teachers will hold virtual classes according to the posted schedule via Google Meet. You can see your Meet invitations through https://meet.google.com/ or in your email. Students are expected to participate in All classes daily. Each of their academic classes meets four times per week. Wednesdays will be reserved for individual meetings between students and teachers. Set meeting times will be provided to each student. If their is additional time is needed please ask. Special Education teachers will be available in each Google Meet session as well as for individually scheduled sessions.
