Remote Learning Procedures
Detailed information on our Remote Learning procedures and scenarios were provided to faculty at the beginning of the school year. The slides from this presentation can be found here.
Homebase Learning Schedules
The Homebase learning schedule is a digitalized version of our daily in-school schedule. If a situation presented itself where the entire Lower School needs to go remote, teachers will connect with their students via the Zoom links listed in the Homebase Learning Schedule. We ask that students attend all sessions homebase and special area sessions.

Tips for Hosting Video Conferences
When hosting online conferences please keep in mind the following:
- Location - Check your surroundings
- Sit in a location with good lighting
- Set yourself up for success - Dress for success
- It's OK to make a mistake! - It shows we are human
- Make it personal
Establish video conference norms with your families. Some examples may include:
- Ask families to mute their mic. This will ensure there is no feedback during your read-aloud.
- Use the Chat feature for families to ask questions
For additional information regarding Norms and best practices for hosting a Zoom meeting review our detailed Norms documentation, which was shared out with LS families.
