Remote Learning

Manitou Springs School District is preparing to launch Remote Learning to our students. Since going 1:1, we have been using Canvas in Grades 6th to 12th grade on iPads.

Now, we have an opportunity to use these Remote Learning lessons to recover lost days due to the COVID-19 virus. A Remote Learning day is when students access learning outside the traditional class, either through online sources or instructional packets/materials.

The Remote Learning days are designed to avoid interruptions in instruction that occur when school cannot be held due to unforeseen circumstances.

Remote Learning for 6th - 12 grade:

• Students and parent(s)/guardian(s) can access Remote Learning by students logging into Canvas or using the Canvas App or Canvas Web clip on their iPad.

• Every day teachers will post activities/assignments and a link to Google Meet. Teachers will have students log into Google Meet from the posted canvas link to take attendance. We will follow the normal A/B schedule both at the High School and Middle School.

• For students to be considered in attendance, students will need to log into Google meet for each class. Students may be required to complete assignments online or offline by returning a hard copy assignment (upon returning to school) to show evidence of their learning experiences. Further, if students are unable to participate in Remote Learning, accommodations will be made to assist them in making up the missed work.

Our plan is to conduct Remote Learning days through the use of the students’ devices and hard copies when necessary. If you currently do not have an internet connection at home, please let the principal know.
