eLearning Days

Wawasee Community School Corporation will virtually make up school days that are closed due to weather or other circumstances. On eLearning days, teachers will have lessons and/or activities available by 9:00 a.m. if a cancellation is called or by 10:00 a.m. if a delay becomes a cancellation. Teachers will be available to answer questions via e-mail from the time lessons and activities are available through 3:00 p.m.

The primary objective is to maintain learning momentum, not to make-up missed days of school. Virtual eLearning days allow students to minimize the interruptions caused by snow days and continue to make educational progress.

eLearning Days Guidance

  1. WCSC will be as proactive as possible.  If weather looks like school in session as normal might be an issue, teachers will have students download plans for the following day as much as possible.  There will be times when that does not happen, and then students and parents will know assignments will be posted by following #6 below.

  2. eLearning Days due to inclement weather will be relayed through the district’s notification email system, district website, the district’s Facebook page, and local TV/radio stations.

  3. eLearning Days will take place on the day of the inclement weather with students having 2 school days following the eLearning day to complete the assignments. Assignments will be due at the start of school of the third school day following the eLearning Day.

  4. If successive day cancellations are needed, the first three days will be eLearning Days, and the following days after will become eLearning days on Saturdays that are planned and communicated for later in the year (IE: If we have a blizzard and are out for four days in a row, the first three days will be eLearning days.  The last day will be an eLearning day on a Saturday several weeks after the missed day.).

  5. Teachers will post contact information and assignments/learning targets by 9 am. Teachers will host virtual office hours from 9:00am - 3:00pm over the course of the eLearning day. Digital office hours can be conducted via email, Google Chat, Google Classroom, or telephone, but not via social media. If a two-hour delay is called first before a decision to close, then assignments must be posted by 10 am with teachers’ virtual office hours 10 am-3 pm.  As a general guideline, elementary students will have approximately 2-3 hours of assignments including specials and support classes. Secondary students will have approximately 3-4 hours of assignments.

  6. Classroom teachers and special education teachers will work together to ensure that work is appropriate and accommodations are made for students with special needs.

  7. To help accommodate students with any technical challenges or questions, WCSC will have hotline support systems open from 9 am-3 pm.  These questions and/or challenges should be technical, not instructional.  All instructional questions should be directed to the student’s teacher(s).

    • Hotline for Technical Assistance: 574-457-3188 (Press #4 for eLearning Technical Support)

  8. It is expected that most assignments for the eLearning day will be completed at home.

  9. Public libraries in each community have internet access available.
