Online Instruction Update

Garnet Valley School District Online Instruction Update
Posted on 03/30/2020

Dear Parents,

Please take the time to watch this five minute video by clicking here. Also, after watching the video, we suggest that you read through the Parent Checklist below as we get ready to “go live” with online learning today.

Parent Checklist for Online Learning:

  • Complete the Web Conference Permission Form. Completion of this form is mandatory for parents with students in grades 1 to 12. If you have not already, please click here to complete the form. Parents of Kindergarten children are not required to complete the form at this time as most of their teachers are not currently using electronic platforms. If that changes, we will reach out to those parents directly.
  • Read the Online Instruction FAQs for Students and Parents by clicking here. It’s five pages long, but it’s important that you read it. The document will give you all of the information that you will need to assist your children.
  • Conduct a family meeting to create a schedule of when learning will take place and designate an “at home office/classroom” that is quiet but accessible to parents–especially for younger children.
  • As a first family learning activity, ask your children to show you how they access Schoology and/or Seesaw. Have them show you how they navigate through the learning management systems to access their learning.

As we prepare to hit restart on the 2019-20 school year, let’s continue to work together respectfully, empathically, and inclusively as we advocate for our children during these complex times. Finally, remember there are folks in our community that need our support. You can help by using the GV-CTC Venmo account: @GVCTC. If you are asked, the 4 digit code is 3706. Jennifer Tront, GV-CTC Treasurer, owns the account, so you will see her name appear. Donations can also be made through MySchoolBucks by clicking here or by signing into your Myschoolbucks account and selecting the GVCTC donation item in the school store menu.
