Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students,
In compliance with the directives from Bishop Brennan and Governor Mike DeWine, we will not be in session March 16-April 3. This document will provide a schedule for the time school is not in session and details on the Power School™ Remote Learning Plan.
These weeks will be divided to meet different goals and expectations:
March 16-20: No remote learning classes will take place. The faculty will be preparing their Remote Learning Plan(s) for their class(es).
March 23-27: Spring Break
March 30-April 3: Power School™ Remote Learning begins
Mondays and Wednesdays – Red Days – Math, English, Religion
Tuesdays and Thursdays – Blue Days – Science, Social Studies/Health, World Languages, Electives
Fridays – This day is reserved for faculty to plan their instructional work for the following week, to grade any formative assessments, and to provide feedback to students. Students should use this day to work on any subject they choose to meet the tasks for the week as they move toward mastery of concepts.
During the Power School™ Remote Learning period, the faculty at Bishop Hartley High School will provide an authentic, remote learning experience to supplement the curricular goals aligned with the Diocesan Course of Study. Formative assessment will be utilized in all classes to provide ongoing feedback to students and enable faculty to recognize where students are struggling in order to target areas that need improvement. As of today, Quarter 4 grades will not be entered until we return from break.
Please note: Quarter 3 ended on Friday, March 13. Grades will be updated on Power School™ by Friday, March 20. Please click here for how to access Quarter 3 grade reports. If there are any extenuating circumstances with a student’s Quarter 3 grade, please communicate directly with the student’s teacher to resolve the situation.
Power School™ Directives for Remote Learning
The faculty at Bishop Hartley High School will follow the same protocol for Remote Learning.
All communication will flow through a student’s Activity Feed in Power School™. Faculty may also utilize a student’s Bishophartley.org email as a primary source of communication. Class Pages will host all instructional materials, activities, and assessments. Please click here for screenshots on how to navigate Power School™.
This process was reviewed with students during class meetings on Friday, March 13. Students were also instructed to take all necessary materials with them. This includes books, tablets, and any other resources they may need. We have worked with students to be sure they can access Power School™, their BishopHartley.org email, and other electronic resources. Students who encounter technical difficulties should contact Andrew Jahahn, Office of Technology Chairperson, at Andrew.Jahahn@bishophartley.org or 614-237-5421, ext. 10620.
Please note: There are several internet providers offering free internet access over the extended break. Please access the link below for information on how to contact and enroll. Those unable to access the link can call 1-844-488-8395.
Communication with Faculty
Students will use their bishophartley.org email accounts to communicate with faculty. The faculty at Bishop Hartley High School will be available to respond to email between the hours of 8:00a.m. and 3:00p.m. Monday through Friday.
This is uncharted territory for all of us. It is important to keep all lines of communication open. All of us must take responsibility and do our very best to ensure learning is taking place during this time. We appreciate your patience and kindness as we navigate this process. As new details or developments emerge, we will continue to communicate through Final Forms, the website, and the school’s social media platforms.
May we who have minimal risk factors remember those who are most vulnerable. We continue to pray for all those affected by this virus.
St. Jude, pray for us.
