Distance Learning Time Schedule

PRHS Distance Learning Instructional Time Schedule


Every week each Bearcat will get one social emotional learning or academic support resource from their tutorial teacher. Before the first day of school, your tutorial teacher will send information to each student via Google Classroom to have them sign up for a 15 minute check in time slot once per week. During this time, teachers will check in with students, get feedback for improving our distance learning model, check in on students' academics and social well being, and discuss the social emotional learning or academic support resources that were shared that week. Tutorial teachers will be a student’s and parent’s main contact and resource navigating any challenges they experience during distance learning.
