Orientation Week Schedule

Important Dates

 

For Remote Learners

For students who will be continuing in remote learning for the term, regular classes will continue Monday-Friday this week and next. 

On September 2, 3, and 4, some remote classes may not include a live Zoom meeting during the in-person orientation days for hybrid students, as teachers will be meeting in the building with students during those days.   Students can expect that lessons on those days (September 2, 3, and 4) may include independent work to complete during the class period without the teacher, and attendance will be determined by the submission of the assignment in Classroom.  Each teacher’s Google Classroom will contain specific instructions for each day.

During the week of September 8, following the Labor Day holiday on Monday, remote classes will meet Tuesday-Friday following the regular class schedule. 

 



For Hybrid Learners

For students who will be transitioning to hybrid learning, next week includes orientation activities to support in-person learning. For the alternating days of hybrid learning, students are broken into two groups to identify which days of the week they attend in-person and which days are at home. Each student’s schedule group - Blue or Silver - is shown on their schedule in Campus Portal.

BLUE SCHEDULE - Students will usually attend in-person on Mondays and Wednesdays, and online from home on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.

SILVER SCHEDULE - Students will usually attend in-person on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and online from home on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

In preparation for hybrid learning, 6th graders will participate in two orientations over two days - one will be done remotely from home, and the other in person at Deer Creek.  

Tuesday, September 1

Online Orientation for 6th grade Hybrid Learning  
This online at-home orientation is designed to prepare students for the in-person orientation at the school the following day.  It will review health and safety procedures - such as lining up upon arrival, temperature checks and health screening, hallway expectations, lunch procedures, and more - that students must know before they arrive for the in-person orientation.  These orientation activities will take the place of the regular remote schedule for the day, and the day’s lessons will be posted to the Counselor’s Google Classroom.


Wednesday, September 2

Online Orientation for 7th grade Hybrid Learning 
See description above.

In-Person Hybrid Learning Orientation Day for 6th graders
In-person orientation is a half-day activity, which includes practice on health and safety procedures, expectations before, during and after school, meeting student cohort groups and Access teachers, and running a mini-schedule for students to find their classrooms, meet their teachers, and practice passing period procedures. In-person orientation
will take the place of the regular remote schedule for the day for participating students.

BLUE SCHEDULE 6th graders - 8:10 - 11:05 AM.  For bus riders, morning routes will run as regularly scheduled, and afternoon routes will pick up from school and drop off 4 hours earlier than the regular schedule.

SILVER SCHEDULE 6th graders - 12:10 - 3:05 PM.  For bus riders, morning routes will run 4 hours later than regularly scheduled, and afternoon routes will pick up from school and drop off as regularly scheduled. There is no lunch period in the schedule for orientation, so students should eat lunch before coming to school.

For in-person hybrid orientation, students only need to bring the following with them to school: 

  • Mask - all students must have and wear a mask that covers nose and mouth (bandanas are not allowed)
  • Backpack - with no lockers, students will carry all their supplies and materials from class to class
  • Chromebook - fully charged, with headphones/earbuds (wired only, not wireless/bluetooth)
  • Water bottle - filled at home, for hydration during the day
  • Notebook and pencil - for taking notes during the orientation and classroom sessions
