Greetings Warrior Students and Families,

We are excited about the start of 4th quarter! We understand this is a great shift in learning for your students. We understand the shift this is causing in your homes. We appreciate everyone’s determination to support student learning during this era of Covid-19. 

As our teachers move into online instruction for your students, we have attached the instructional schedule 01 - CPHS Online Instruction - Student Schedule (English and Spanish).pdf) for your families.  Each school day, there are only two class periods of instruction.  Teachers will be online and present during this time, in the Microsoft TEAMS Learning Platform.  Teachers may also be continuing to reach out through Skyward.  We expect students to connect online into teams sometime during the day, to their designated class periods; example: Monday is period 1 and 2.  Teachers will be providing instruction, guidance, resources, notes, videos, assignments, and summative tests.  Each class, will only have 1-2 assignments per week.  Each class will only have 1-2 Skyward gradebook assignment entries each week.  When your student completes the assignment(s) for that class for the week, the teacher will place the score into the gradebook. 

With all of this, each class will only meet one time per week.  Your student should only have 2-3 hours of learning and studying, per class, per week.   8-16 total assignments per week.  1 to 2 assignments per class, per week. A student with 8 classes, would have 16-24 hours of classwork per week. We encourage students to login and check in with each class during the designated class time, but minimally, at least on that day of the class. Teachers will be available many more times during the week for your student to email and ask questions.

To ensure that you are prepared to make the change to online learning next week, you will need to be able to access two things; your new student email account and Microsoft Teams.  The second attachment 02 - Accessing Email and Teams (English and Spanish).pdf) is directions for accessing email and Microsoft Teams.  All students have been provided with an email address (your district ID number ending in “@edweb.cloverpark.k12.wa.us.”  Your password is the password you use to login to the computer at school.  You will login to Teams using your email address.  Instructions on how students use Teams will be coming later this week.

The third attachment 03 - HS GradesCredits Flowchart Spring 2020 (English and Spanish).pdf) is our Grading Policy.  This is a flow chart, to explain how CPSD High Schools are following the direction provided to us, during this era of Covid-19, from the Office of Public Instruction and the State Board of Education. As it stands, a student cannot earn a final Semester grade lower than their 3rd quarter grade.  We understand the significant difference from 3rd quartder face to face instruction in the schools, to now the online learning of the 4th quarter.  We will be reaching out to families and students when we see that htey are not engaging in the online learning platform that begins on April 27th.

We encourage all of our students to push for their very best each and every day.  This is especially important, because we want students aiming for their best grades they can earn, as there are future implications to a student’s transcript with many P’s for passing. 

These implications could be with college acceptance, scholarship awards, NCAA eligibility and others.  No matter the situation or circumstances we find ourselves in, we always want our students to have as many options and opportunities in their futures. 

We are looking for a great and strong 4th quarter with our students, and we will see you online!
