Online Learning Day 1

Online Learning Day 1
April 7, 2020 GWHS

Dear GW Community –

Thank you to all of our students and staff for engaging in our first day of online learning. Additionally I want to thank everyone for your patience with one another as we navigate our first week in this new learning environment.

Students, don’t forget to check-in each day using the Google Form posted on our website at 7:00am. We will also send out an email every morning with the link.

We will continue to check in with our community this week. We will address challenges as they arise, and operate with the understanding that everyone is acting with the best intent. As we have stated, we will monitor and evaluate how our systems are serving our students and allow for adjustments and innovation as we move forward.

One piece of feedback we have heard from our students today is that it’s difficult to navigate how each teacher is using Schoology – where exactly lessons and resources are posted versus classroom updates and teacher messages.

We are working with our staff to create consistency across the board in how Schoology is being utilized. We will share an update with you on Friday addressing this specific concern and what changes you can expect to see as we head into Week Two.

Sincerely,
Kristin Waters, Ph.D.
Principal | George Washington High School
