What Happens When My Teacher is Absent?
There are situations that come up for staff i.e.: doctor/dentist appointments, illness, bereavement, etc. We have also had a number of family emergency situations that have led to staff needing to be out for a portion of time or a full day.
In our remote learning format, teachers are not provided with a guest teacher unless they are out for 3 days or more, as teachers are able to push out meaningful learning activities through our asynchronous format.
In the event that your teacher must be absent for 1-2 days, an alternative Grand Ridge Certificated staff member will welcome your child’s class, take attendance and make sure that students know the plan for asynchronous learning for the day. They will be there to provide support and answer any questions about the day during the Morning Meeting time.
Thank you for your understanding and flexibility should this occur with your child’s class.
