In order to ensure our elementary children thrive within virtual learning, they will follow a normal instructional schedule. Teachers will provide the students with a daily schedule since schedules vary from school to school. Students will be expected to log-in to their computers at 8:00 AM. Teachers will deliver direct instruction to students throughout the day. However, they will not remain on the computer all day from 8:00 AM- 3:00 PM. For example, students may be instructed to complete an activity in a workbook or in their Class Notebooks in the Microsoft Teams app. The teacher will then set a time to meet back in the class to review the work. This type of cycle can be repeated numerous times throughout the lesson. The students will get breaks between classes, have recess time, lunch time, bathroom breaks, and even a 40 – 45 minute break where they can do things around the house or outside to take the place of PE, library or art. Teachers and students have a segment of the day for intervention and remediation time. During this time, assignments will be given and time will be provided so the teacher can schedule small group intervention or remediation with students. Students may be asked to read independently or to work on Zearn, if they are not working in a small group with the teacher. Additionally, teachers will be available for office hours if parents and student have questions.
Parents, you will be given more specific details. We are just wanting to give you an example day for an elementary virtual student, so that you know what to expect.
Student:"Don't let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do." -John Wooden
Staff:"Be brave, teachers. Today you may face big challenges, impossible tasks or difficult problems. Or you may not, and your students might. Whatever the case, put on your brave face and teach on!" -Unknown
There are no Medicare sales representatives. Anyone who tried to sell you Medicare insurance is a scammer.
You do NOT have to join a prescription drug plan to keep your Medicare insurance. Medicare Part D is voluntary and has nothing to do with your regular Medicare coverage.
Telephone scammers posing as "official agents" may ask for personal information, offer free equipment or services, ask for a quick payment, or threaten you. Just hang up.
Help with Medicare is available at medicare.gov or 1-800-MEDICARE.
For Affordable Care Act:
Compare plans and quality ratings at healthcare.gov, where you can also enroll.
This year, you can also sign up for an ACA plan directly with certain certified partners. Make sure a company is on the Certified Partner list before giving them your information.
After you apply for ACA, you may get a phone call from the Marketplace asking you to verify information or supply additional information. If you are unsure about trusting the caller, ask the representative to mail you a letter with instructions for completing your application.
Help for ACA is available from the Marketplace Call Center at 1-800-318-2596. You can also meet with a local assistant in your community who will offer free assistance. Local assistance can be found through the Local Assistance tool.
