Remote Learning Days
August 25, 2021
Hello Lenkerville Families,
I want to provide families with information about remote learning days. Our remote learning days will be different compared to the remote learning days held last year. Remote learning days may occur this year due to COVID-19 or inclement weather (heat/flood/snow/ice/etc).
By now, you should have received Mr. Haupt's message that Thursday, August 25, 2021 will be an early dismissal day due to forecasted high temperatures. Students will not receive remote instruction following the early dismissal.
After Thursday's early dismissal, we plan to have remote learning days for Lenkerville Students instead of early dismissals, when there are forecasted high temperatures.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is an Asynchronous Assignment? An asynchronous assignment is work that is assigned to a student by the classroom teacher. This work is not completed live with the teacher in a Zoom Session. The student could complete the assignment at 8 A.M. or 8 P.M.
What is a Learning Platform? A learning platform is an online instructional delivery system that allows students to access assignments via their iPad, Chromebook or home computer in some cases.
What Learning Platform is my Child Using? If your child is in kindergarten, first or second grades, they will be using a platform called SeeSaw. You should have received information about SeeSaw from your child’s teacher. If your child is in third, fourth or fifth grades, they will be using Google Classroom or Canvas. Please contact your child’s teacher if you’re having trouble accessing the learning platform.
My child doesn’t have a device, what should I do? Students are instructed to take their device home each day and to bring it back the next morning. If your child is in kindergarten, they have not received a device as of this writing. Your child’s teacher will reach out to you through SeeSaw to explain their instructional delivery method until kindergarten devices are delivered. If your child is in grades 1 through 5, please contact the school if you think your child’s device is somewhere in the elementary school.
