**You will NOT be meeting via Microsoft Teams with ELA on Monday or Tuesday.  


Today you all should have received an invitation from me for a meeting via Microsoft Teams.  This meeting will take place on Monday, April 6. The times for these meeting vary depending on the period that you have Social Studies (see schedule above). You also should have received our new schedule and Elm expectations for "Distance Learning".  Make sure you take peak at this important information before "I see you" on Monday. 


What happens during digital class? (Monday & Wednesday 8-11:30 AM)
This is a time for you to attend live classes with your teachers. It is required that you show up to digital class just like you used to show up for class in-person. Your teachers will be directly instructing you and answering live questions at this time. Digital class time will be held in the Microsoft Teams app in your class-specific teams.

9:30 -10:00 Period 3

10:00-10:30 Period 5

10:30 - 11:00 Period 7

11:30 - 12:00 Period 8

What happens during office hours? (Tuesday & Thursday 9:30-11:30 AM)
Office hours is a scheduled time for students to work independently on work posted by their teachers. This is also a time where your teachers are scheduled to be available to you for digital work time or questions. Office hours will be held in the Microsoft Teams app. You will have a scheduled meeting in the app for the entire time (9:30 – 11:30). You only need to attend the meeting if you have a question or want help from one of your teachers. If you have a Math question you will stop into the meeting during the 9:30 – 10:30 time. If you have a Social Studies or Science question you will come into the meeting during the 10:30 – 11:30 time. You must follow all of the same expectations as you do during a class. When you are not actively
asking a question, you should be using this time to complete work that has been assigned by your teachers.

What happens during open office hours?
Open office hours is a time for you to clarify and/or complete any work that still needs to be completed for the week. The Elm Team will be available via email during this time on Fridays. Teachers will also use this time to meet with small groups if needed. This will be determined by class request or by the request of the teacher. Keep an eye on your e-mail for meeting notifications.
