High School

Mode

As of Wednesday, November 18th, Students in Grades 8-12 will be remote through Tuesday, January 24th. Subject to change if health or safety conditions warranted it..

Class Schedule

In order to minimize transition, the online schedule will be very similar to the one we will follow when we are able to return to the school building.

You will note that classes are held every other day for a 90-minute block. Each class will be segmented up with different types of teaching and learning (e.g. reading, discussion, group work) happening during each segment. Students will have time to work on practicing skills during these blocks and there will be very limited homework during online learning. Exceptions are practicing math skills using IXL and practicing vocabulary in world language classes. However, students will be held accountable for the work they do during class and on assessments and demonstrations of learning. If a student is not on task or able to be productive during class time, the teacher may give students a chance to work on and pass in work the next day.

Class Meetings 

Meetings will take place via Google Meet. Students are expected to follow rules of Netiquette and the Sparhawk Credo.

Supplies

The following supply lists are segmented into three groups. The Environmental and Tech  Supplies list has all of the supplies that a student will need to create a successful distance workspace as well as the technology that will transition to in-person classes. The second is a list of general school supplies. The third is a list of art supplies that students who take art classes will need. 

Communication

We have streamlined our communication systems. Parents, students and teachers will now access their portal from the Sparhawk Website. When you login, you can access all pertinent school information from there. Your login will be emailed to you the week before school begins. 

Your portal will include:

  • a feed of the latest emails sent to parents 

  • pertinent forms

  • the school calendar

  • link to the PlusPortals for assignments and grades 

  • Google Classroom
