There are still significant concerns with our ability to safely transport students to school in the morning. For that reason, we will be E- Learning on Tues, Jan 23. The plans will be as follows: Pre-K students will use their choice boards. K-3 students will use Day 2 of their E-Learning packets. No Google Meets. 4-6 students will use Day 2 of their E-Learning packets. The regularly scheduled Google Meets are highly recommended, if technology is available. See directions listed below. 7-12 students will log into Google Meets using a district device, if available. If not available, students may use a home device, such as a phone, and log into a Google Chrome browser, if possible. This will allow access to saved bookmarks. Students will then sign into their school based Google account using their Blue Ridge emails and passwords. We understand that in some cases, home devices are not possible. Attendance will be taken via Google Meets for 7-12; for 4-6, attendance will be taken via Google Meets OR through turning in the learning packet within 5 days after their return to class. For K-3, attendance will be taken through turning in packets within 5 days after their return to class. Pre-K teachers will be in contact with families for attendance purposes. Teachers will be monitoring email if you have questions. Thank you. Be safe. #br_u_knighted

I'm sending another message to hopefully clarify how our days off impact our calendar. We've used one E-Learning Day; that will not impact the calendar as learning occurred. We've now used two Emergency Days, so as of today, our last day of student attendance will be Thursday, May 23, 2024. There is much that goes into a decision, so please take time to read the document that was previously shared as a reminder: https://5il.co/2agy0. IF we need to be out again tomorrow, students are advised to find a device with which they can connect to Google Meets as we would use an E-Learning Day. Thank you for your patience and understanding! #br_u_knighted

As a follow up, please know that we do our best to watch forecasts and send devices home with students when we anticipate inclement weather. My goal is to have proper materials at home if we decide to E Learn. To that end, please work today to find a home device, if needed, as we may be on weather watch Tuesday morning as well. #br_u_knighted
