Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, The Tenney School will transition to a Distance Learning Program starting March 23rd. See below for more details about the Distance Learning plan, as well as a short video from our Head of School.
On Thursday, March 19th we announced plans to transition The Tenney School to a Distance Learning model after Spring Break. The details of the plan are contained in the attached Distance Learning Letter. Some particulars about the program:
- Student will meet their teachers on Microsoft Teams. Teams is available from your Tenney School Office 365 Login.
- Some teachers may also use OneDrive as well since it allows teacher & student to see and edit documents simultaneously.
- Where more advantageous, some teachers may conduct some classes using Zoom instead of Teams.
- As a reminder, each student login is first name.last [email protected]
- If a student needs his/her password reset, please email Ms. Brahier or Ms. De La Rosa.
- Teachers will initiate contact with students to begin instruction.
- Ms. De La Rosa will follow-up (text/email) with any students who do not make his/her scheduled class times and should be marked Absent or Tardy.
- Students and teachers will follow their normal school schedule. Let us know if you need a copy of your schedule resent.
- We expect 1-to-1 lessons to be very similar to in person lessons.
- Group (labs & electives) classes will be modified to fit the format, but will continue to meet on Teams/Zoom.
- PE classes will be using the downdog app. Students can download the app for free with a student ID.
- Students will scan or take a picture of their work to submit back to his/her teacher for grading. Work can be emailed or submitted through Teams.
- Teachers will assign tests/exams to be taken at home, and may also use oral exams.
- Please let us know if you have any issues and we will assist in troubleshooting.
