MS Remote/Hybrid Resources

Attendance

Attendance in every synchronous class is essential. Please remember to reach out to the main office if your child is unavailable to attend a class due to an appointment, etc. If you have a wifi issue on a particular day, please reach out after the fact to the teacher and the main office. 

If a child is not present for more than 50% of the synchronous block (i.e. they log in late or leave early), they will be marked absent. If a child has their camera off and is unresponsive (not responding to verbal or chat responses), they will be marked absent as well. 

You can log in on the Aspen portal at any time to view attendance data and we will report a weekly summary via email for any student that had absences the previous week.  Thank you for supporting your child to ensure they are logging on consistently and engaging in class. 

Virtual Back to School Night 2020

Chromebook

Please fill out the Chromebook user contract form if your student needs to borrow an IACS Chromebook and arrange with the main office to pick it up. Please come anytime between 8:30-4, but please avoid dismissal time between 2:45-3:15 pm. Families should call ahead and buzz the building when you arrive. Our main office staff will bring it to you outside, like curb-side pick-up!

Looking ahead to the Hybrid Model

When we eventually move to the hybrid model, you likely are wondering which days your child will be attending. 

The advisories on the left are assigned “Red” days. During the hybrid model, they would attend in-person on Mondays and Tuesdays. The advisories on the right are assigned “Blue” days. During the hybrid model, they would attend in-person on Thursdays and Fridays. Please note that we took input from families over the summer to inform having siblings and carpools on the same day, and we are no longer able to make placement changes.
