Submitting Distance Learning Work
As Williston-Elko High School scholars are completing their work packets this week, please refer to the teacher email listing included in the original packet. You may also find teacher contact information on teacher pages through the school website. Pictures should be taken of the completed work pages and the work log and should be submitted to each teacher via email. If your teacher has already had you working in GoogleClassroom, you may continue to submit your work there. If you are able to scan the documents, that will work fine as well. Out of an abundance of caution as we have a confirmed case of COVID-19 in the Williston community, we will not be accepting paper documents. Please understand this is for the safety of our school faculty.
Report cards can be viewed by parents in the Parent Portal this evening beginning at 5:00. Please use the login information you used at the beginning of the school year.
If you have reserved a Chromebook for home use through the district website and you are showing no symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, cough, or shortness of breath) please come to the school between 10:00 and 2:00 Wednesday to pick up the Chromebook. You can still reserve a Chromebook through the link on our district website through this evening. If you are exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 please do not come to the school as many staff members will be there. A parent or guardian must sign for the Chromebook. ELearning will begin April 14 when Spring Break is complete. There will be no school activity during the originally scheduled Spring Break.
The high school will post the class codes for each GoogleClassroom created by teachers to the school webpage Wednesday evening. But remember, the sites will not be used by teachers until April 14.
We hope each of you are staying healthy and we look forward to seeing you back in school as soon as possible. Have a great evening.
