WHAT TO EXPECT (Please click HERE for more details.)

ocs NEW logo

Due to the impact of the various COVID-19 variants and potential inclement weather, we want to be prepared should a classroom, a school or the whole district have to shift to remote teaching and learning. This would only be temporary and we will need to be ready to shift with only a short notice. It will be important for all staff and students to carry their devices back and forth to school daily. Lessons and instructional activities will be delivered in both live (synchronous) and recorded (asynchronous) formats.  Social-emotional learning opportunities will continue to be provided for students. Our upgraded version of remote learning (Remote Learning 3.0) will include the following:

    • Live, direct core instruction 
    • Independent work for students to complete 
    • Submission of assignments
    • Meaningful feedback and grading
    • Attendance taking  
    • Remote learning that provides both structure and flexibility for students, teachers and families 
  • Instruction will take place Monday through Friday

It is important to note that remote learning plans and schedules will follow a similar daily class schedule as the in-person school day.  This is to keep students’ daily routines as consistent as possible as the plan is to return back to in-person attendance as soon as possible. Students will attend classes remotely Monday - Friday per the regular school calendar. Below are the short term or temporary remote learning expectations for students, parents, and staff.
