Remote Learning FAQs

Over the last year and a half we have learned a great deal about remote learning and how to best provide this option for our students.  Listed below is our policy in regard to using extended learning options for short-term situations. 
We know there will be times this year when, for COVID related reasons (positive diagnosis or exposure), students are unable to attend class in person, even when the school as a whole is on campus. In these situations, we are fortunate to be able to offer the ability for 1st-8th grade students to learn remotely, live streaming into their classrooms as needed and accessing class-related materials online.
The general intent of this program is to meet the instructional needs of students who, for COVID-related reasons, are unable to attend school but healthy enough to participate in learning activities.  We are thrilled to be able to offer this option, but please be aware that it does place a significant additional workload on our faculty and classrooms, so we ask (as always) your cooperation in using it for the reasons it is intended. For clarity’s sake:

Individual Early Childhood extended absence opportunities will be limited and require parent participation. For information, please contact Head of Early Childhood Abby Aloni at aaloni@bernardzell.org.
Should your Lower or Middle School student need to participate remotely, you will need to contact the student's Division Head. Middle School families need to notify the Division Head by 3:30 on the school day before the absence. Lower School families should expect, on average, a 24 hour turnaround time for students to participate in extended learning options, as it does take time for our faculty to prepare for students to join in-class activity virtually.
Division Heads and teachers may adjust the specifics of extended learning to meet the developmental needs of the student and align with the planned classroom activities.
