On Wednesday, March 25, River Campus will begin distance learning with a one-day schedule intended to allow guides and students to touch base and interact online. A sort of 'welcome back' day, it will give each of us the opportunity to test out our gear, make sure we understand how to connect, and identify any hiccups in the plan. The schedule for the first day back and additional information for students can be found here. Students will see Google Calendar invites to first day classes early next week--they should ‘accept’ those invitations and notice the included links to classes. They should also navigate to their Google Calendar, where they will see each course meeting populate (complete with a Zoom link in the description). Parents may need to assist students with this initial set up.
Beginning on Thursday, March 26, and running through Friday, April 3, students will follow a more traditional A-Day and B-Day schedule. That schedule can be found here. This schedule provides two synchronized meetings per class, per week. It also provides a Flex Day format on Wednesdays when guides will be available online for one-to-one tutoring, workshopping, or questions. You will also note established times for online office hours. Students should email guides directly to set up meetings for office hours or on Flex Day.
