Distance Learning

Étoile students and parents know how important it is to keep learning, regardless of where you are. Here’s how we’re handling distance learning.

Each week you will have assignments to complete on Google Classroom and short lesson videos to watch. Your exit tickets and assessments will be graded. You will need to complete all of them (do now, exit tickets, assessments) successfully to pass your classes.

Below is an outline of what you can expect from your teachers and Etoile staff during this time. We have also included a suggested schedule for you and tips for working from home. Please join office hours (for your teachers or leaders) if you have any questions or additional concerns.

Each day, your teachers will be on Google Hangout to answer your questions about the work. You can log on to the Google Hangout anytime during their Office Hours. The schedule for daily office hours is below.

In addition, you will have two mandatory Advisory Check-ins on Google Hangouts each week. These will be with a group of students from your grade and one teacher. Below are the groupings for these Google Hangouts. Your teacher will connect with you to make sure you know when these will happen and how to get on.
