Remote Learning Information

Remote Learning Information

As you have seen from Superintendent Murphy, Abbot-Downing School will be switching from Hybrid & Remote Learning, to full Remote Instruction for ALL students starting December 7th and continuing through January 15th. I would like to say that this was not an easy decision, but right now, it is the safest decision.

Monday, December 7th is a FLEX DAY; this will be followed by remote instruction Tuesday through Friday. On Monday, students will log in to their Morning Meeting to connect with their teacher and get an outline of their day’s tasks to complete. During the week of December 14th, the FLEX DAY will be on it’s normal Wednesday.

STUDENT SCHEDULE FOR MONDAY, DECEMBER 7TH

Morning Meeting- Students should be signed on at 7:45 AM

Specialists (Art, Physical Education, SEL)

Music Lessons (the schedule you follow on a normal flex day)



Additional Information for Remote Instruction

  • Students will remain with their current teacher
  • Teachers will be taking attendance at Morning Meeting, as well as at each required session to log into. If your student will be absent from remote learning on any given day, we ask that you call the school office at 603-225-0827.
  • Students considered to be part of the vulnerable population; we will be looking at possibly providing some level of services. The ability to provide programming will depend on staffing availability.
  • Picking up materials.....your child(ren’s) teacher will be in touch with you if there are materials that need to be picked up for Remote Instruction.
  • We will follow a school day schedule starting with virtual “Morning Meetings” starting at 7:45. Students will follow a schedule similar to when they were physically in school. There will be reading, writing, and math blocks. Mini lessons will be delivered and students will have work to do both on and offline. There will be a “mid-day” schoolwide break for lunch and recess/movement (non-screen time).
  • We will continue to send home our Mustang Morning Message. We will look to see if we are able to continue to do these “live” as we did earlier this year.
  • Also, it wouldn’t be Abbot-Downing without having a Friday Dance Dismissal…..so, we will continue to communicate our Friday playlist to the ADS community.
  • There will be some staff at ADS during Remote Learning, but the building is not currently open to visitors. If you need to drop off any paperwork, etc, you would come to the front door located on the South Street side of the school. 
I have included the Remote Schedule and guidelines below.

Thank you for your flexibility and patience this school year. As always, should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me (ablinn@sau8.org or 225-0827).

Sincerely,
Mr. Blinn
