Remote learning update: Is this for a grade?

Posted on: April 2, 2020

Remote learning – Is this for a grade?

Little Miami used the first week of school closure to develop optional remote learning opportunities. Beginning Monday, March 23, teachers began communicating these optional opportunities to all grades through Schoology, email or other means.

This week and next are an adjustment period. Students will be reviewing concepts already covered, while teachers test this new remote-learning framework. Should the school closure extend past the April 6 date, the district will revisit this approach and families will receive additional information about how Little Miami will be proceeding.

These remote learning activities are suggestions to help your student review the skills they have already been taught this year, and they will not be graded. We understand that each family has its own schedule, and time and resources can be limited. Do what fits best for your family.

  • If your family does not have access to the Internet, Spectrum is currently offering free 60 days of wi-fi for families with students in grades K-12. To receive this, contact Spectrum at 1-844-488-8395.
