- How many different people will my son come into contact with, during the school day?
- What if one of his classmates is not showing symptoms, but is spreading the virus to his peers or teachers? Could he bring it home, and infect a member of the family?
- My child needs socialization with his friends, peers, and teachers, but what if they don't follow the same safety protocols that we follow in our family?
- What if his class is quarantined, and he suddenly has to go to remote learning? Can he just pick it up seamlessly, or would it be a major disruption?
There are so many questions, and every parent is trying to do what is best for their child. There are concerns about safety, social-emotional issues, child care, and academics. Different parents choose remote learning, or in-person learning, based on the needs of their family. One family will not necessarily have the same concerns as another family. I have one son who will be attending remotely, and will be in a pod at our house. I will be monitoring him, as well as my two step children, by going through their assignments, and making an online work plan. Another parent may have both parents working, be a single parent home, have a child who needs tutoring only, or need to have their child supervised all day. I am working to coordinate this in our community.
For further information, please fill out this survey, so we can begin planning for your child to have the best academic year possible!
If you are a teacher, tutor, learning coach, or parent who would like to work with students pods, please let me know more about you!
Remote Learning Coach
The upcoming school year will not look the same as any school year we've ever witnessed. There will be twists and turns, and changes that may happen quickly. As a parent and educator, I'd much rather plan now, than scramble at the start of the year. I believe pods are the best way to engage students, use the district provided curriculum and teachers, make sure everyone is mitigating risk, and plan the best we can. I will be happy to answer any questions you have!
