  • Academic Strategy

    • Start your day in myHSC. Your teachers will post work on myHSC Class Bulletin Boards for each of your classes by 8:30 a.m. Daily work will include important links to Webex meetings, shared documents or other online destinations.
    • Middle School classes will run according to our regular timetable and 8-day cycle. There is no morning home form time. We’ll begin the academic day with Period 1 at 8:45 a.m. 
    • Students are responsible for being online and available to teachers for the first 30 minutes of each class. 
    • Teachers might use this time to show a video, demonstrate a concept or procedure, meet online as a class, or direct you to a task. 
    • Attendance will be taken during this “face-to-face” portion of the class.
    • Attendance is taken to ensure that we are continuing to engage all of our students. This is not punitive but rather to make sure that we are engaging our entire community.
    • When not in class, work at your own pace through the day.
    • Flex times will run daily, 2:30-3:00 p.m. Students may participate in the Spring House Challenges.
    • Detailed program information and communication about Learning Services and counselling will be communicated by Principals to their individual school communities.
  • Assessment, Evaluation and Reporting

    • The first weeks of the HSC@home remote learning plan will prioritize student support and relationship-building. 
    • A summative assessment will take a back seat to formative assessment. 
  • Communication

    • There will be a daily video update from the Principal. 
    • Principal letters will be sent to the Middle school community regularly.
    • At this time of year, our scheduled SICs are by teacher appointment, and our teachers will reach out to families to set up virtual meetings as required. As always, teachers are available to meet to address any concerns from home.
