Hello students and families. First and foremost, I hope you are well and are following the protocols to protect yourselves and others from COVID-19 (coronavirus).
The District is developing a remote learning plan to help you continue to learn and grow with support from your teachers while schools are closed. Every student will need to have access to a computer and the internet to participate in remote learning. If you need one, you or your parent or guardian can pick up your Chromebook for free at school on April 14th (9th and 11th grade students) or April 15th (10th and 12th grade students) between 9am and 1pm. Another pickup opportunity may also be available for families if needed. Information about free or low-cost internet and wifi access is available for families here or by visiting www.philasd.org. Our goal is to have all students ready for remote learning by April 17th.
It’s important for all students to participate in the remote learning plan. If you were on track for your current grade or graduation, you can continue your learning to stay on track. If you were having difficulty meeting your course requirements, you will have the opportunity to get back on track. And if you participated in Credit Recovery, you will have the chance to complete the requirements for credit attainment.
Maintaining the safety of our students, families, staff and volunteers is our top priority, and safe Chromebook distribution processes will be supported by the Office of School Safety.
Please do your part by ensuring you have the necessary tools to participate in remote learning.
Take care and stay safe. We look forward to resuming learning together in the coming weeks.
