During the 2018-19 school year, we had six days where we closed for snow or cold weather. We heard from families and staff that they wanted us to explore the use of e-Learning days. E-Learning days allow our students to work from home fostering curriculum momentum and learning in a meaningful way when the weather is unforgiving. E-Learning Days can also negate the need for makeup school days during breaks or in June, helping families more effectively plan summer activities.
Our school district will begin using e-Learning days during the 2019-20 school year. We intend to use e-Learning days immediately with our first emergency weather closing. Families will receive the e-Learning message with our emergency weather communications.
We are excited to try e-Learning days and we know that trying something new demands time for learning and exploring what works for our district. Below, are the e-Learning expectations, information, and activities for our school. This information is also available on our school e-Learning web page:

e-Learning instructions for Mahtomedi High School
Once the school day has been declared an e-Learning day, teachers will have assignments posted on their webpages by 10:00 AM. They will be available by email until 3:00 PM for questions.
Students and/or parents should check each of their teachers’ webpages.
On each teacher's main webpage, students will find instructions to access e-Learning instructions.
Each assignment should take between 20-30 minutes to complete.
Students should be prepared to discuss the assignment when they return to school.
Teachers are prepared to make accommodations for students that do not have access to the internet. If this is the case for your student please notify the teachers so they can provide the appropriate accommodations.
If your child has an Individual Education Plan, your child’s case manager will connect with you with accommodations and modifications.
If your child is sick or unable to complete the e-Learning plan, please use the attendance form to report the absence.
