Mustang Distance Learning Tips to Get Off on the Right Hoof!

This will be updated frequently as we continue our journey into Distance Learning!

March 31st kicks off our Distance Learning.  Please make sure that your student logs into myLearning to access their classes titled Distance Learning.  We will be starting with core subjects this week with electives starting no later than next Monday.

There is no specific school time each day.  Our distance learning plan is flexible so students will have assignments each day with due dates each week.  This allows the schedule to be flexible with family plans.

Don’t forget that our teachers are still available to help our students.  This is a great time for students to advocate for themselves and contact their teachers for assistance.  All students have a district email in myPascoConnect to communicate with their teachers and can also post questions on the course discussion boards in myLearning.  If parents need to contact teachers, teacher emails can still be found in myStudent and we will be posting contact information on our school website.

Please be patient this week as there may be some glitches.  This is a new time for all of us and we will work through it together.  If your student has a problem with their school issued technology, please make sure to look on our website for the tech help link/phone number (or you can find it below) so we can get someone to help you.

Attendance

We will be taking attendance as you login to your courses. Please make sure that you are logging in and completing your assignments. Student Attendance will be based on student login, student to teacher interactions, and work submissions through the myLearning platform. Attendance will be recorded on Mondays for the preceding week, with daily absences entered in myStudent when students do not complete the expected work for the previous 7-day period. Students MAY still complete the missing work for full credit, however, student services teams will use absences as a data source when monitoring for interventions and support, as well as truancy procedures.
