Our Schools

E-Learning

MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS are continuing with e-learning.

ELEMENTARY STUDENTS

  • The remote learning packets distributed last week contain enough work for students to last through April 9.
  • Students in Grades 2-5 will begin e-learning April 20. If your child will need a district-issued Chromebook to complete e-learning assignments, we will be distributing Chromebooks April 1-3. Look for information to come before April 1 from your child’s school regarding the process for distribution.
  • For Child Development through first-grade students, teachers are preparing learning packets to be completed April 20-30. The learning packets will contain a lot less pages than the first packet. Learning packets will be available beginning Wednesday, April 1. Your child’s teacher will email the packet to you, and it will also be accessible on the school’s website. However, if you do not have access to a printer and need to pick-up a hardcopy packet from the school. Schools will send out details on the distribution of packets.
For all students: The South Carolina Department of Education has pulled together a team of instructional leaders to figure out solutions so that the e-learning/remote learning will count toward the completion of this school year. Based on what has been shared with us so far, we do believe the e-learning/remote learning days will count.   In the coming weeks, we anticipate getting guidance from the state department so that we can update parents and students about grades including the final grades for the third nine weeks, grades for the fourth nine weeks as well as final grades for second semester and the school year. We will share this information with teachers, students and parents as soon as possible.

Spring Break: Students and employees will observe Spring Break as previously planned. Students will observe Spring Break from April 10-17, 2020, and employees from April 13-17.


 

March 24, 2020 Update

The Governor announced that schools will be closed through April 30, 2020. District officials and school leaders have been preparing for this possibility and are reaching out to you to share the updates below. 


Thank you for your continued flexibility, support and patience during the school closure. Most of all, thank you for supporting student learning while juggling all the other changes caused by this global health emergency. Together we will continue to prepare our students to lead and excel in their chosen pathways.

Elementary Students: The remote learning packets distributed last week contain enough work for students to last through April 9. The district is preparing to transition students in Grades 2-5 to e-learning beginning April 20. If your child will need a district-issued Chromebook to complete e-learning assignments, we will be distributing Chromebooks April 1-3. Look for information to come before April 1 from your child’s school regarding the process for distribution. By April 9, students in grades Pre-K through 1st grades will receive new learning packets. Students will begin working on the new packet April 20.  Again, more information is to come about this.

Middle & High School Students will continue with e-learning.

All Students: We are awaiting guidance from the S.C. Department of Education regarding introducing new content via e-learning and grades.

Spring Break: Students and employees will observe Spring Break as previously planned. Students will observe Spring Break from April 10-17, 2020, and employees from April 13-17.
 


March 17, 2020 Update
Although we can never replace the value of traditional instruction, we are committed to supporting our students while they are out of school during the COVID-19 school closure (through April 30, 2020). Richland Two’s elementary students will engage in remote learning by completing a work packet specific to their grade level. The work packet contains assignments correlated with the South Carolina College and Career-Ready Standards.

On Tuesday, March 17, 2020 elementary principals are emailing parents to explain how they can obtain printed copies provided by the schools. Parents also have the option of printing the packets at home using the links in the principal's email or the links below.

E-learning for Students at Middle and High Schools

Students at Richland Two middle and high schools can access their e-learning work online using a personal device or using the district-issued Chromebook. Teachers are emailing students directly and updating Google Classrooms with information on the e-learning work. Please have your child check their district email and Google classrooms regularly. If they have not received information for all of their classes by Thursday, March 19, 2020, students should email their teachers for assistance.

For assistance with Chromebooks during the closure, students should begin by informing their teacher. The teacher will request assistance for the student through the schools Technology Learning Coach. If a student needs to pick up his/her Chromebook from school, the student can notify one of their teachers. The teacher will share the request with an administrator who will confirm a day and time for pick-up with the student/parent.


Teacher office hours

While we are out, all Richland Two teachers will have “office hours” Monday-Friday 9–10:30 a.m. and 2:30–4 p.m. During these times, teachers will be available to check and respond to emails and to talk via telephone.
