      • What's Going On the Week of January 11, 2021

        We are so excited to welcome students back to the Ranger Nation! Please watch this welcome back Video for a brief explanation of the hybrid/synchronous plan. Please have students read the guidelines below for more detail about expectations. In addition, below is a brief summary of what teachers have been working on to get ready:

        • Canvas Consistencies-  Teachers will structure Canvas courses to consistently communicate:
          • Weekly Learning Plan: Place most recent at the top of modules
          • Google code and times
          • Naming conventions for the week (must include dates)
          • Plan must include daily assignments and clear due dates
          • Front load the assignment page with all the necessary items.
          • Use feature to assign different due dates by section if needed
        • Grades- Due to numerous complications and misunderstandings, teachers will:
          • Turn off visibility for grades in Canvas
          • Update grades weekly and Infinite Campus will be the official grade
        • Teachers learned about several new tech tools that should help students and staff maximize the potential of our current learning environment.
        • Teachers also met within Professional Learning Communities to plan for essential curriculum, instructional practices and assessment alignment.
        • We acknowledge that the plan for the spring allows teachers, students, and families an additional opportunity to demonstrate a growth mindset.  While we know it will not be perfect, we will learn from each mistake and begin again with a better strategy. Thank you for your patience and support as we all work through this together.

        COVID Safety reminders:

        • Remember that we are a Safe, Self-Managing, High performing organization- one in which we take care of one another!
        • All students will need to be wearing a mask, have their LPHS ID, and stay physically distanced entering and moving about the building throughout the day.
        • Students riding the bus will enter in the north Athletic entrance and students driving or being dropped off will enter the main entrance.
        • Students should proceed to their 1st period class when entering the building.

        Daily/Hybrid Bell Schedule

        Student Synchronous Instruction Guidelines:

        Attendance Expectations:

        • Attendance will be taken in IC for each class period  at the beginning of the class.
        • Follow the posted bell schedule and log in at the beginning of class for attendance.
        • Students are marked absent after 15 minutes.
        • Students are marked tardy if present within the first 15 minutes of class. 
        • Chronic tardiness and absence will result in a referral.
        • Parents will be notified for any absence not called in for excusal or not related to a COVID absence.
        • Students will complete the self-check in through IC for Flex Fridays.
        • If tech/access issues arise, students/parents will be expected to communicate with teachers immediately.

        Course Structure:

        • Every course will require a live google meet component with a meaningful learning activity for each class period.   
        • Length of sessions are course and department dependent. 
        • Live Meet components can include varied types of instruction, varied types of activities (student and teacher led), and varied lengths of time.  
        • Once attendance is taken, time for instruction/activity can be required throughout the class period including the middle of the course or staggered times based on activity/lesson plan.
        • Students are required to participate in the synchronous learning activities.

        Assessment and Grading:

        • Teachers will update grades in IC weekly.
        • Participation grades may or may not be part of the grading expectation.
        • Testing expectations/platforms are dept/teacher determined and communicated with students in advance. (In class only, hybrid, all online, etc.)

        Classroom Management and Other Considerations:

        • Teachers will communicate the camera expectation - when are students required to have it one and when are they not.
        • Students will follow expectations for appropriate on-screen as well as in-person behavior including the use of the mute feature and actively participating in the course.
        • Same code of conduct expectations for in-person and distance learning students.  
        • Students need to communicate with teachers for support: Use a professional tone when reaching out to teachers or staff.  Sample email templates can be found here and here
        • Students are encouraged to advocate early when issues arise.

        Counseling Corner

        • Students, please double check your schedules on Sunday night before returning to classes on Monday. Counselors have been working to balance classes, especially with regard to cohort sizes.
        • And as a reminder, our schedule change window was advertised and took place before Winter Break. Because of cohort restrictions and limited space in classes, schedule changes will not be allowed when classes resume.



        All athletic paperwork must be completed, submitted, and approved by the Athletic Office before you can be cleared and able to practice.
