Supporting Students When They are Absent Due to Extended Illnesses

The school district is in the process of expanding our ability to meet the needs of students who are absent from school for longer periods of time than they would be for a normal short-term illness. Last school year, we were able to commit a number of staff members to remote instruction as  result of the significant number of families electing to learn in that environment. This year, with full in-school learning, we do not have the ability to redeploy staff in that manner. As such, we have to rely upon more traditional methods of delivering learning to students who are out of the school building.

With the wide variety of ages of students we serve and the material they are tasked with learning, it is important for individual teachers to make the determination of how best for students to learn from home. This is a list of measures that are currently available, or are in the process of being developed.

  • Sharing of in-school learning resources and materials (textbooks, workbooks, etc.)
  • Communication with teachers electronically via email or phone
  • Use of Google Classroom for assignments or communication with teachers
  • Use of video conferencing for live interactions both within a class and with staff
  • Pre-recorded videos of lessons or activities from teachers in district
  • Existing on-line learning materials such as those provided by the College Board, virtual learning providers such as Kahn Academy and other similar resources.
  • Use of on-line learning materials, tutorials, or software related to concepts under study (iReady, etc.)
  • After school hours – extra help sessions with staff or tutors

We are currently working to expand our offerings of live on-line help both during and after school hours, to be offered both by our staff and from independent tutoring services. This will be expanded as soon as possible.

Londonderry School District Public COVID-19 Dashboard 2021-22

Since the Department of Public Health continues to experience delays in reporting COVID cases, we will take the step to make a “dashboard” available to the community so that more up to date information is shared weekly.

Under the COVID-19 tab on our website, you can find the following link to our dashboard.

https://londonderry.org/c_o_v_i_d-19_info/c_o_v_i_d-19_dashboard

Our dashboard will be updated for the public on Friday afternoons of every week. We will share the following information on our dashboard:

  • The percentage of Londonderry residents that are fully vaccinated
  • The level of community transmission, (substantial, moderate, or minimal) specific to Londonderry metrics.
  • The active cases in each school building over the prior week, captured for each day of the week.
  • The masking status for each school based on that Friday.
