Office Hours & Google Classroom :

Locker Clean Out & Pick Up – Locker pick up is available Mondays 1-2 pm in the front of Sheldon High School.

Grades :

Due dates are guidance and suggested dates for how students can best access the curriculum and participate in office hours. Due dates also provide a sense of weekly structure for students. Late work will be accepted without penalty. Students will be awarded a grade designation of Pass, Incomplete or Incomplete, rather than letter grades (A, B, C, D, F) for the third trimester. These grades will not affect a student’s grade point average (GPA).

Synergy (ParentVue/StudentVue) is the primary grading platform.

Attendance Guidelines :

Students’ participation in distance learning will be noted on a weekly basis every Friday. If your student does not “attend” a class by engaging during a given week they will be marked absent for the week and the school will contact the student. Examples of student engagement include:

● Answering a question after watching a video, a phone conversation, a Zoom class, submitting class work in Google classroom, a text containing a picture of the work done, connecting with the teacher via email, etc.

Weekly Lessons & Assignments :

Uploaded by Monday at 8:00 AM every week (adjustments may be made during the week). For specific questions, please reach out to individual teachers.

Please double check to ensure your students are logging in! PLEASE have your students access Office Hours as they are a critical connection point and great way to get support from teachers.

Paper Packets :

Need access to paper packets? Please communicate directly with your teacher.

Yearbooks :

The yearbook will be going to print SOON! There are a limited number of yearbooks still available for $65. Please email us if you have any questions – sheldonybk@gmail.com.

This is changing daily, as folks modify their hours and services to prevent the spread of the virus. We will update this information daily as the situation is rapidly changing. Send updates to info@whitebirdclinic.org.

Looking Glass Community Services – Station 7 continues to provide largely the same services we provided previous to Covid-19, we are just screening clients upon entry by taking temperature and assessing for Covid-19 symptoms and then we are practicing CDC and HUD recommended guidelines within shelter as far as social distancing and sanitizing goes. We are able to take youth 11-21 at Station 7 but youth 18+ have to be in their own room (or in a room with only other 18+) and we have to prioritize 11-17 so we take those 18+ stays on a night by night basis depending on our room availability. We also continue to operate the 24/7 crisis phone and texting line for the agency. Please visit the website for information- Looking Glass Community Services
