At Home Learning Tips

  • Establish routines and expectations.

  • Have a dedicated space for online meetings that are quiet, free from distractions, and well lit with a flat surface for the device, a workspace, and any necessary materials.

  • Balance screen time and non-screen time activities. Encourage your student to complete the PE activities that are suggested by their teacher.

  • Students should take brain breaks and move regularly as they study.

  • Discuss what your student is learning and ask questions.

  • Establish times for quiet and reflection.

  • Remain mindful of your student’s stress and anxiety.

Enhanced Distance Learning

We are committed to working together to support your child to engage with learning during this unprecedented situation. Do reach out to your child's teacher or school if you need help. Distance learning will look different from being together in-person. With patience, empathy and understanding, together we will create the best learning experience possible for all of our students until we are able to once again return to school in-person.

Jaime Casap, former Chief Education Evangelist at Google, identifies some challenges of distance learning and breaks down how parents can help support learning and curiosity at home.
