Blended / Remote Learning

Updated Model:

Currently all P.S./I.S. 45K students are either fully remote or in person. There is no blended learning model.


If approved by our school, students who opted for in-person learning will be attending classes in the school building from Monday through Friday.
In the event that your child is not able to attend class that day, please notify the classroom teacher at your earliest convenience. Even in the event of of an absence, your child will NOT be able to attend the online classes if they opted for in-person learning with the exception of extraordinary circumstances.
Our School's Blended Learning Model:
Every Other Day with Enrichment Mondays
Week Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday
1 Group A Group A Group B Group A Group B
2 Group B Group A Group B Group A Group B
* Group D is 100% remote Monday - Friday. 
What is this model?
Each child will be placed in a Cohort, or group, in the beginning of the school year. 
Group D will be in 100% Remote Learning, so the students will not physically come in building.
(These are students who have been opted out of in-person learning.)
Group A and B will switch off in-person learning according to the general schedule (shown above).
Any day a group is NOT scheduled for in-person learning, the respective group of students will be expected to be learning online.

 Example for Group A: 
    • For Week 1: Group A will be in building on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday. Group A students will be online Wednesday and Friday this week.
    • For Week 2: Group A will be in building Tuesday and Thursday only. Group A students will be online Monday, Wednesday, and Friday on Week 2. 
Why did we pick this model?
Aside from being the Chancellor's preferred choice, Model 1A allows our students to work remotely less throughout the week. Ms. Marshall has also expressed confidence to hold 50% population capacity with this model.

Your child’s iPad is now a hotspot that allows you to connect other devices used for remote learning to the internet.

Devices other students in your house are using for remote learning can be added to that connection.

Follow these steps:

● Go to the Settings App

● Search for "Personal Hotspot" and click it to take you to the login screen

● Select "Allow Others to Join" 


As a reminder, as with the iPad itself, the hotspot connection is to be used only to access remote learning activities. Any unauthorized use is strictly prohibited.
