The start to the 2020/2021 school year is something to consider. These are historic times, with historic challenges. Blue Ridge Middle School is committed to providing the best middle school experience for your young learners as we can. If you have questions or concerns, please reach out to your House Dean, a specific teacher or your child's counselor. We are a team and will work together to support each other.
Here are some important things to discuss with your child regarding Distance Learning and our expectations.
LCPS will start the school year with 100% distance learning for all students, with very limited exceptions. Students will begin with 100% distance learning on September 8, participating in classes provided remotely, using electronic tools to access live, synchronous classes and classroom meetings, while also engaging in structured learning through online resources and other learning tools provided by LCPS. Most students will not come into school buildings for instruction at the start of the 2020-2021 school year.
This document provides detailed information regarding current plans for 100% distance learning in elementary, middle and high schools. The sample schedules as well as synchronous and asynchronous learning time expectations outlined in this document are subject to change as staff continues to finalize plans for the 2020-2021 school year. Students will interact synchronously (live, interactive online) with their teachers Tuesday through Friday and will also have designated independent work times for asynchronous learning (independent, without live interaction).
