What happens on Flex days?
Students have the choice to attend their classes in person or remotely on flex days.
If students choose to attend in person, they will follow their bell schedule like a normal school day.
If students choose to attend virtually on Flex Days, they will be expected to attend every class virtually in its entirety for the full school day. Students will find links to join Google Meet or Zoom through Google Classroom.
Where is the daily health screening form?
All students must complete this daily screening form before coming to the building. We recommend that you bookmark it and set a reminder to fill out the form for each day you plan to come into the building. Please note that you must be logged into your student email account for the form to work. The form can be found at tinyurl.com/FTBcovid.
What will learning look like on remote learning days?
It is our goal that students won't need to sit in front of a computer for an entire school day on remote learning days. Students will be required to submit assignments, attend office hours, of have a 2-way communication with each teacher/class on remote learning days.
How will attendance be shared for Blended Learning Classes?
Students enrolled in blended learning classes are expected to attend on their Flex Days either face to face or screen to screen two days per week (either M/W or T/Th). Whether students choose to attend in person or virtually, Flex Day attendance will be tracked in our online student information system Alma. Please review this video
for how to set up your parent Alma account.
On Remote Learning days, students are expected to submit assignments, attend office hours, or have a 2-way communication with their teachers for all of their classes. Teachers will be taking notes on how students engage on their remote learning days. Teachers will update these notes by 3PM each Thursday. On Friday, we will send a weekly summary of how students engaged on their Remote Learning Days. This summary will be sent to the student, their guardians, and their advisor.
How will attendance be shared for Online Classes?

What do "office hours" look like?
Office hours will be available virtually for each class during their scheduled times M-Th and from 1-3PM on Fridays. The links for virtual office hours will be sent via email and posted on Google Classroom.
We don’t have reliable Internet access right now. How is my student supposed to complete their work from home?
We recognize that this may be a barrier that some of our students face. We are encouraging families to follow up with the resources on our Covid-19 site for internet access. Please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org for more support. We will work with all of our families to ensure that every student has working technology and internet. Please complete this form so that we are aware how we can assist.
What will happen on Fridays?
Fridays will look a bit different this year. Our school building will be closed for deep cleaning.
Students enrolled in the fully virtual program will meet with their advisors by appointment between noon and 1PM. All students will be able to attend VIRTUAL drop in hours with their teachers between 1 and 3PM for support. Students can find the links and times for drop in hours in Google Classroom.
