eLearning Information

March 24, 2020


Hello Parents!

I hope everyone is staying safe during this unexpected time. I know you are doing your best to help continue with schooling efforts at home. I want to let you know about our current requirements and expectations for your child.

All 3rd-6th grade students are required to log in to canvas to do their online learning assignments. Students must complete assignments in order to be marked present for attendance. So far, eLearning days have been scheduled until April 10th. Please visit scec.k12.in.us for updated information regarding eLearning and scheduled days.

All K-2nd grade students received a work packet on Friday, March 13th. These packets will need to be turned in by Friday, March 27th for your child to be counted present for attendance during the March 16th, 17th, 23rd, and 27th eLearning days. You are also able to send a picture of the completed packet to your teacher if you participate in ClassDojo.

New packets will be available beginning Wednesday, March 25th. You can pick up the packets from the main entrance during brunch times (10:00-12:00pm).

New packets will be made available during our time out of school. Robo calls will go out to inform you when new packets are available.

There will be bins/boxes outside of the main entrance A to deposit packets and pick up new packets.

You are required to sign off on the sheet on top of the bin once you deposit a completed work packet. Your child’s name must be on the sheet in order to be counted for attendance. Please take your own pen to use. You are also able send a picture of the completed packet to your child’s teacher on ClassDojo.

Again, thank you for making sure your child is completing all assignments. We will get through this unusual time. Please know we are working hard to support you and your child!

ATTENTION PARENTS!  Do you need help with eLearning? 

Let's face it - eLearning is new for ALL of us. Now is the time to work together for the benefit of our children. Let's re-dedicate ourselves to forming a strong partnership. Our kids need us and We're Better Together!


Below is a helpful list of websites that your children can work on aside from the tasks and activities teachers have assigned in Canvas and/or Google Classroom.  It's important to get kids on a daily schedule that includes eLearning. To access each site, just click the name of the site that is underlined. Come back and revisit this list because it will continue to grow.

iReady Math - Each student has a learning path that is suited to his or her needs.  Students should work on this site for at LEAST 45 minutes a week. 

IXL is an excellent site for students in kindergarten and all the way to high school. It provides practice in all the important subjects - reading, language, math, science, and social studies.  Be sure to explore this site.

Khan Academy is a math site that provides step-by-step instructions and explanations for all kinds of math problems.  It has lessons for students starting in kindergarten all the way up to college levels. This site comes highly recommended.

Xtra Math is good for keeping those basic math skills fresh, like addition, subtraction, multiplication and division
