Student Attendance and Expectations

  • Students must sign-in on the Google attendance form using their school Gmail account each day of e-learning before 10:00 a.m.
    • The attendance form must be submitted each day in order to meet the requirement for an attendance day.
    • The Attendance Officer and Dean will be able to check attendance daily.
  • Students are also expected to check in with each class through Schoology and begin working on the day’s assignments before 3:00 p.m. This includes P.E., Art, and Strategies. Teachers will have an assignment posted that will require some type of response or submission.
  • Teachers will confirm attendance through the work students submit, tracking attendance for each class. All assignments should be completed and submitted prior to the next school day.
  • Teachers will be available to respond electronically to students’ questions between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.
  • In addition to Schoology, students should check their HT email accounts regularly.
  • Juniors will have an assignment for College 101 to do through Schoology and must check in at least once per week.
  • If a student is having technical issues with her/his Chromebook, Schoology, or assigned coursework, please contact Mr. Terrasi, Director of Technology, at jterrasi@holytrinity-hs.org.
  • Any student who needs a Chromebook device, is having difficulty with internet access, or who needs to access materials from the building should contact Principal Lynch at mlynch@holytrinity-hs.org.
  • PARENTS – If your student is too ill to work, or there is a technical problem that prevents them from submitting work on time, please notify us as you usually would for an absence through a call or email to attendance@holytrinity-hs.org. If we do not receive a notice from you, your student will be marked absent.

Tips for e-learning success:

  • Carve out a workspace that is free of distractions.
  • Set some routine work times, focusing on the most challenging subjects when you are at your best.
  • Don’t be afraid to reach out to teachers with questions.   
  • If you are given the opportunity, join a conversation or class discussion.
  • Finally, watch deadlines for individual assignments so that you don’t fall behind.

Teacher Expectations

  • Teachers will post work for each class on Schoology no later than 9:00 a.m.
  • Each class should be given an assignment daily that will take approximately 45 minutes to complete and should be meaningful and relevant to the course. Additional ‘homework’ is not expected.
  • Assignments should require a response that can be recorded and graded. It may be a discussion board, reflection questions on a video or reading, a formative assessment, a brief recording or video, or some other type of activity that can be submitted or viewed electronically.
  • If an assignment, such as a research project, covers multiple days, some evidence of progress should be submitted daily to help students stay on track.
  • Students who can document technical issues should be allowed to make up work as an excused absence.
  • Each morning, teachers should confirm a list of students who did not submit any work for the prior day.
