If you are a parent who chose brick and mortar for your student, you may be wondering about the importance of that first week of school when all students will be eLearning.
This first week is important for your student. Smart Start Week is as critical for students heading back to the classroom on August 31st as it is for those continuing with eLearning.
Here are 5 reasons why:
Even though we will be learning virtually, the expectation of Smart Start week is the same as any other first week of school. There will be assignments and there will be learning. Missing this week is just like missing the entire first week of school.
Your school will be contacting you over the next few days with your student’s teacher information. The best thing you can do right now is make sure your student can log on to Canvas and is ready to go for August 24th. You can access Canvas by going to HillsboroughSchools.org. Our district has also created videos to walk families and students through the process.
