When there is inclement weather and school cancellation is necessary, Carl Junction Schools may implement a Virtual Learning Day. During a Virtual Learning Day, students will be asked to “attend” school virtually. Virtual Learning Days are used to allow continuous learning in case of an extended absence from school. It also counts as a school day so the “missed” day does not have to be made up later in the calendar. While each building’s Virtual Learning Day may look a little different, overall, students will Zoom into class, receive instruction from their teacher, and then complete the day’s assignment.
We know there are some students without internet access at home. If that is the case for you, the district will have sent home with students a Virtual Learning Packet at the beginning of each month of learning. For a Virtual Learning Day, students should get their “paper packets” and complete the sections designated by their teachers.
Each building has instructions that are customized for their grade levels. You will find instructions on how to access virtual learning information and materials by going to each building’s web page. Look for the link that says Virtual Learning Days. Instructions for your child will be available at this link.
While we hope we have only a few weather-related school cancellations, we are glad to have the option of Virtual Learning (or Paper Packet Learning) for our students during the absence. Please contact your child’s building for further questions.
