Remote Learning - Tips for Students

It is important to find a routine that works for you and stick with it throughout this time of remote learning. We recommend that you keep your waking time and sleeping time as consistent as possible with the regular school year. This will maximize the time that your teachers are available while you are completing your work. This will also help keep you on track so that the transition back to school is not as challenging.

It is important to choose your work space carefully for remote learning. Make sure that it is comfortable and meets your needs for the day. If you will need a parent nearby to ask questions to regularly, consider setting up in shared family space rather than in your bedroom. If you need a quieter area for independent work, consider setting up in a place where you can shut the door to minimize interruptions. If you have siblings, decide whether a shared area is going to work or if you will need separate work spaces.

Teachers have a variety of ways to be reached depending on grade level. These are outlined more fully in the individual remote learning pages for Elementary and Secondary. Your teachers are here for you and we encourage you to reach out whenever you have questions. Teachers will have set work hours, so may not always respond immediately, but should respond during the next designated work block. Please check with individual teachers regarding their schedules for more information.

It is important to both your physical and mental health to continue being active throughout this time of remote learning. Our physical education teachers will provide resources for you based on grade level and we encourage you to take advantage of these. In addition, look for other opportunities to remain physical such as helping around the house, going for walks, helping in the yard, etc.

This is a difficult time for everyone and we encourage you to talk to someone if you are feeling overly stressed or anxious. Parents, teachers, pastors, friends and family are all here to help each other through this. Don't be afraid to talk and pray about your feelings!
