January 20, 2022: Virtual Learning at Home January 20th and 21st

Rocket Community, 

As a result of the impending snow and freezing weather conditions, staffing shortages, and increasing COVID-19 concerns all impacting the efficient delivery of classroom instruction, the Spring Grove Area School District will close all schools to in-person learning today, Thursday, January 20, and Friday, January 21, and conduct Virtual Learning at Home on January 20 and 21. In-person learning will resume on Monday, January 24.  

The decision to conduct Virtual Learning at Home today and Friday was made after considering the significant challenges facing the District and follows the various COVID-19 guidelines of the PA Department of Health and the PA Department of Education. The intent of conducting Virtual Learning at Home for today and tomorrow is to provide for the health and safety of our students and staff, while simultaneously continuing to engage students in active learning.  

VIRTUAL LEARNING AT HOME INFORMATION 

We have prepared students to be as independent as possible, utilizing Schoology and/or SeeSaw as their digital home base; however, students may need assistance from an adult, especially at the elementary level. 

  • Students will have access to assignments and resources in Schoology/SeeSaw and should work, at their teacher’s direction, to complete them. Teachers will schedule live sessions following their normal school schedule. Students in grades 5 – 12 are expected to attend the live interactive sessions for instruction and learning, to get answers to their specific questions, and for general instructional support. Students in grades K – 4 are highly encouraged to attend the live interactive sessions. Sessions may be recorded and posted for viewing at a later time should students need to revisit lesson content and directions from the teachers. 

  • SGFlex Asynchronous students in all grades will continue their work as usual.   
  • SGFlex Synchronous students in grades 7-12 should follow the bell schedule and participate in all classes via Zoom. SGFlex Synchronous students in grades 5-6 will receive specific instructions from their teachers or building principal. 

  • If your child experiences a technology issue during Virtual Learning at Home Days, please contact our phone tech support at 717-225-4731 x6930 during the hours of 7:00 AM – 3:30 PM.
