Distance Learning Information


Dear Spectrum Families,

We have continued to monitor our community COVID cases and the administrative team has decided to continue distance learning for the HIGH SCHOOL for traditional students for the next two days (Wed. Jan. 19th and Thu. Jan. 20th). We will return to in-person instruction on Friday the 21st. We hope that this opportunity provided by the Governor for a total of 4 distance learning days will help our community’s health.

Our Functional Skills Classrooms (Kathy Avery, Lisa Sorensen, Emily Davis, Teresa Culley, and Courtney Evans) will remain open for in-person instruction.

Here is the status of the other NSL buildings:

HS: Distance Learning Wed 1/19 & Thu 1/20 and Return In-Person Fri 1/21

IS: Distance Learning Wed 1/19 & Thu 1/20 and Return In-Person Fri 1/21

ES: Continue In-Person Instruction

STARS: Distance Learning Wed 1/19, Thu 1/20, Fri 1/21, Mon 1/24, and Return to In-Person Instruction Tue 1/25.

Distance Learning Schedule:

Times will remain consistent with the usual bell schedule.

Here is the link to the google doc version of the updated schedule.

Each teacher will communicate the work expectations for their class. They could include any of the following.

Independent work: Students access and complete work on their own either via Canvas (How to access Canvas video) or through packets. Students and parents contact the teacher via email or phone calls to the school.

Video lessons: The teacher records a lesson covering the class content and posts it in Canvas for students to access. Students complete work on their own. Students and parents contact the teacher via email or phone calls to the school.

Live Check-ins: Students access work in Canvas and complete it mostly on their own. The teacher makes available a live session during the scheduled class time in which students can join to ask questions or get help with their work. Parents are asked to contact teachers via email or phone calls to the school.

Live stream class: The teacher offers a live stream class for all or part of the scheduled class time. Students can also access work in Canvas on their own if they are unable to join the live stream. Parents are asked to contact teachers via email or phone calls to the school.

Lunch: Parents, if you need lunch or breakfast for your student, please fill out this form and pick up a sack lunch from 11:00 - 12:00.

Please feel free to contact a member of administration with any questions or concerns.

Thank you for your continued support as we work to keep our community safe while delivering education to our students.
