We have several tools that you can easily access through your Chromebook. The Plus Portals, Marist Gmail account, and Google Classroom.
Submitting work depends upon each teacher and the nature of the assignment. Some teachers want a shared doc, some want the work submitted to Google Classroom, e-locker in Plus Portals, as an email attachment, or through Turnitin. Each teacher will give the students instructions for each assignment.
If you experience any technology-related issues and need support, please contact Mr. Deh at firstname.lastname@example.org and he will assist you as soon as possible.
Attendance is checked by the student logging into PlusPortal corroborated by the teachers reporting that assignments were or were not completed that day.
In an effort to create a routine for both students and teachers, we’ve designated 9:30-1:30 for live contact, via email and google hangouts. That doesn’t mean that a student will necessarily finish their work in four hours. Nor does it imply that a teacher would not answer an email beyond 1:30, if he/she is available.
Students are expected to complete assignments as provided by the teachers at the given deadline. Teachers will continue to post all grades on Plus Portals, updating every Tuesday.
Teachers and administrators have already begun to work collaboratively, using resources like Google Hangout. Students may work together virtually. However, please understand that we do not have the capability to monitor what students access online while they are at home. We encourage parents to monitor online activity of students.
The best way to reach them is via email between the hours of 9:30 and 1:30, as they will be checking that daily, except during spring break. If a phone call or face-to-face conference is required, that can be set up in Google Hangouts using your son’s/daughter’s account. Teachers cannot phone parents from their cell phones.
We anticipate that we will need to make adjustments to support the learning of individual students. As needs arise, please communicate with your child’s teacher and school counselor so we can support the needs of your learner.
All SAT’s have been put on hold. The AP exams, however, will be given under a new format.
According to the College Board, the AP Program is developing resources to help schools support student learning during closures, as well as a solution that will allow students to take AP Exams at home. Exams, as well as required units, will be significantly modified. AP will communicate further details as decisions are finalized. You can visit the AP website to monitor changes and to find helpful resources for students and parents.
Provisions in state law are allowing remote learning to exceed the prior three-day limit as long as the “stay at home” order remains and school buildings are closed.
Marist teachers are very familiar with differentiating assignments and assessments for students who qualify for accommodations. Ms. Garber, our Support Services teacher, is available to assist students and/or for consultation with parents via email at email@example.com.
Except for the week of Spring Break, Marist is distributing a bag of 5 breakfasts and lunches on Wednesday’s from 10:00-12:00. Families just need to drive around to the back cafeteria door for pick-up.
Marist is closed. If there is a pressing need, e-mail Ms. Miesnik at firstname.lastname@example.org.
HCIAL and NJSIAA have not made any decision yet. Marist will wait to see what these governing bodies will do.
The rescheduling of all activities relies on when and if it is deemed safe for us to return to the building. We are currently exploring virtual versions of some of our spring events.
It is vital that the process of finding a college or high school for next year continue:
Ms. Jennifer Rodriguez, the Early College Administrator at HCCC, will be setting up on-line appointments between April 10 and April 17 with students who are ready to register for the fall semester. Look for her e-mail.
