Athlos Academy will provide students with distance learning during our closure due to COVID-19 Virus precautions. Distance learning will officially begin tomorrow, Friday, March 20. This is to assure students are being provided with educational opportunities during this unprecedented time. We appreciate your patience as we launch our distance learning plan. We will stay in close contact with families and be on hand to assist parents with access to lessons, teachers, and technology.
If you do not have access to technology, we have packets available at the front office. These can be picked up Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Packets are due back to the school by April 14, 2020.
Please also contact the school to let us know you do not have access to technology at (504) 290-2510. We are working through a plan to provide technology check-out options to families that may need it. We will share more information on this option soon.
Below is our distance learning plan, including expectations of students, helpful resources, and access to teachers and support staff. We will continue to keep lines of communication open between home and school through virtual meetings, email, and updated information on our website at www.athlosjp.org.
Access to Distance Learning Resources, Lessons, Teachers, and Staff
We understand that moving to a new learning platform can be a challenge. Our educators have been busy preparing recorded lessons for children to participate in during the closure. Students are expected to participate in three pre-recorded lessons per week, which will be available on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. The first lesson will be available Friday, March 20.
Each of our teachers will be holding virtual office hours to assist students with their lessons.
All of these resources and more can be found here.
*Information is being added as it is available. If your child’s Zoom link or link to lesson plans are not listed, please check back.
Additional Expectations of Students
In addition to participating in pre-recorded teacher lessons, it is expected that Athlos Academy of Jefferson Parish students participate in 2 hours of learning per day during the duration of school closure. This additional learning should take place through i-Ready. If you did not receive your login information or are having problems accessing, please contact the school.
Thank you again, we appreciate all of your support during this time.
