KCS is REMOTE Learning for the Week of 9/14 - 9/18

All students will be remote learning. Please make every effort to assist your student(s) in signing into Schoology every day during their assigned class schedules, as per teacher directives. Students will typically be signing into Schoology Conferences or Microsoft Teams at the beginning of each class to take attendance and get information for the day. Some teachers may have students work on an assignment for the day's attendance/grade. Please refer to each teacher's Schoology page for more information. If you have any questions about a particular class, sending a Schoology message is usually the most effective way to get ahold of your teacher. If your student(s) is having trouble with signing on or having internet issues, please try to send a Schoology message or call the school at (304) 766-0352 to let us know and get assistance. 

From KCS:

Instruction

On this evening’s WV Department of Education School Re-Entry Map, Kanawha County remained orange. This means that KCS students will continue to work remotely this week. Per new directives from state officials on Friday, Sept. 11, athletic and extracurricular activities in orange are now limited to conditioning only. There will be no sport-specific or contact practices this week. Marching band activities must be limited to outdoors only. Coaches and directors will be in touch with students or parents.

We continue to ask parents and students to log in to Schoology daily. We understand that there are sometimes issues with the Schoology platform – this is not just a Kanawha County issue, but is being seen nationwide due to high usage of the system. We know that at some points parents and students have to log out and try again at a later time. Teachers will continue to be understanding with known Schoology or technology issues. 

In addition, we are receiving an abundance of calls regarding iPad issues and trouble with logging in outside of Schoology. Most of these issues are addressed on our website under Re-Entry 2020 > Schoology & Technology Guide. This is often the quickest way to get the information that you need.

Meals

This week, a breakfast and lunch will be distributed via bus delivery daily to all regular bus stops. Parents or students may go to any bus stop to get their meal or meals. Deliveries will begin every day at 11 a.m. along normal bus routes. Your bus garage may be able to give a more exact stop time. Those numbers can be found on our website at: https://kcs.kana.k12.wv.us/district/departments/bus_terminals

This is available to ALL KCS students, no matter whether you selected in person, KCS Schoology eLearning or Virtual Program. 

Path to Yellow

We ask that you continue to encourage friends and family to use caution, wear masks, social distance and follow all recommendations to keep our communities safe. Our students will not be able to attend school in person until our community members work together to bring our numbers down by staying safe. 

Some families may qualify for the Altice Advantage $14.99/mo plan. More information is available at https://www.alticeadvantageinternet.com/. Call 844-358-3147 to see if you qualify.

b.       There are also many free WiFi locations available where you can go to either complete and/or download Schoology assignments. Free WiFi can be accessed in our school parking lots, at your local public library location or at one of the new Kids Connect locations as listed here: https://wvde.us/potential-wifi-access-locations/

c.       The KCS upgraded WiFi on buses and plan to have buses out in our communities will not begin this week, but we’ll have details available as soon as they are ready.
