E-Learning Days are for students so they can still engage in learning during inclement
weather (snow) days. On an E-Learning Day, students in grades K-5 will continue learning
from home, with support from their teachers, instead of going to school. Teachers will share
curriculum-aligned assignments, school computer programs, and/or Choice (BINGO)
Boards. Teachers will be accessible during their office hours in order to provide learning
support to students. The grade level schedules are below.
Snow Days vs E-Learning Days
Snow Days are days where students are not expected to do additional academic school
E-Learning days are intended to counter the loss of curriculum momentum resulting from
school cancellations due to Minnesota’s winter weather conditions. E-Learning Days cannot
replace the face-to-face time students have with their teachers, but they can provide better
learning continuity when school is interrupted. E-Learning Days also negate the need for
makeup school days in June, helping families more effectively plan summer activities.
When are E-Learning Days Used?
At Athlos, our first weather related closure will be used as a Snow Day.
The next five weather related closings will be shifted to E-Learning days. Additional weather
related school closing days will be determined by Kate Hill, Assistant Executive Director,
and makeup time for students and/or staff will be determined by Kate Hill.
