When our campus is closed, learning continues.
Questions You May Have
If school must close to quarantine, what are students supposed to do while they are out of school?
Continue their learning! The Bright School will continue instruction via distance learning (see Distance Learning section below) if the campus is closed.
What do I do if I have a question?
See the Who Do I Call section for more information.
Will other activities take place at school during the closure?
If school is closed, an announcement will be made about activities.
Will events scheduled during the closure be cancelled or rescheduled?
We will announce plans to cancel or reschedule events.
What is distance learning and how do I do it?
Distance learning is instruction provided to students via platforms on the Internet or through email correspondence. Our teachers are using technology readily available to parents at home. Distance learning includes emails from the teacher, videos of instruction, live video conferencing and other online materials, but not all of the work students will do will be online. Students will still read books, write, and work with their hands, and teachers will encourage them to be physically active during the day.
What kinds of devices do I need to access distance learning?
Students in grades 3-5 will be provided Chromebooks, and students in grades K-2 will have iPads. Students will use these devices while in school or at home.
What if I do not have Internet access at home?
Please contact your child’s teacher.
What is the schedule for distance learning?
Your child’s teacher will provide a daily schedule with full details.
Will students have to make up school days at the end of the year?
No, there will be no make up days necessary.
