Middle/High School Plan for Learning During School Closure

Families, I hope all is well in these uncertain times.  As of right now, we are moving forward with online/remote school this week. We will keep you updated as we receive new information. We plan on continuing the learning environment through our learning management system, Schoology.  Teachers and students will be expected to carry on with classes through Schoology the duration of the closure. As a parent, you are the key to encouraging your student to continue to learn and complete assignments. We are in uncharted territory, but want to do the best we can to educate our students. If you have any problems at all, please call the school. 

Teachers will hold Zoom meetings (video conferences) for classes at the beginning of the closure.  The first day will be tomorrow, March 17th. The students’ morning classes will meet every hour starting at 8:30am.  The classes will meet through Zoom and a link will be posted in their individual classes in Schoology for students to connect.  

1st Period - 8:30

2nd Period - 9:30

3rd Period - 10:30

4th Period (Middle School ONLY) - 11:30

Students will meet on Wednesday, March 18th starting at 8:30am.  The classes will meet through Zoom and a link will be posted in their individual classes in Schoology for students to connect.  

5th Period - 8:30

6th Period - 9:30

7th Period - 10:30

8th Period - 11:30

9th Period - 12:30

Thursday and Friday of this week, students can work through assignments on their own. If they need assistance, they can message teachers through Schoology. 

Going forward, if we are closed for an extended time, teachers will continue to meet at the beginning of each week.  Teachers will update students on assignments and guide them as needed either through Schoology, or Zoom. Students are responsible for asking questions and completing assignments. Again, please contact the teacher with any questions you may have. 

Students have the Schoology App on their school issued iPad.  They can also access schoology on any web based device. The log in would be www.wrrsd.schoology.com - user name first initial, last name year of graduation and password first initial, last name and lunch number.  It would look like this bhirchert2024 and bhirchert8432

The future of all activities is uncertain and will keep you up to date as best as we can. The Nebraska School Activities Association has suspended all practices until March 30th. All competitions are suspended until April 2nd.  

Again, thank you so much for your help and understanding during these uncertain times. Contact the school or email me with any questions that you may have.
