Highine's Distance Learning Plan

We have been working hard to keep up with changing circumstances and shifting guidance from our state leaders about educating students during the current public health crisis. 

Based on the latest guidance from the state, we have built a plan to continue instruction to the extent possible. We will modify this plan as necessary based on any new guidance.

We are distributing digital devices to students who need them, providing:

  • A minimum of one device per family for students in grades K-5
  • A device for each student in grades 6-12

Free internet service is available through Comcast Internet Essentials program.

Teachers will guide instructional activities and tasks that support daily learning, but we will not attempt to replicate a 6-hour school day. With many adults working from home and juggling other responsibilities, we want to provide flexibility for students to complete assignments at times when they have family support and supervision.

Teachers will connect regularly with students and provide opportunities for families and students to reach out to them for support, as needed.

We will continue to provide access to paper/pencil instructional materials for grades K-5, as needed. 

We will collaborate with the families of students with Individualized Education Plans and English language needs to do our best to meet students’ individual needs.
