What does it mean that Iredell-Statesville Schools is having a Virtual Student Day on May 1?

It should be noted that chief among this is that there will not be school transportation tomorrow as there are no classes at Iredell-Statesville Schools facilities. Parents are reminded not to have children at bus stops as there will be no pickup.

Here is an outline of the day, courtesy of the school system:

Exactly what does that mean? Essentially, as technology becomes more abundant in the school and in the workplace, opportunities to learn from home increase also. On May 1, I-SS teachers and staff ask that students complete school assignments from home.

Wondering what to do it you don’t have access at home to a computer or the internet?

Simply inform your child’s teacher(s) and they will make sure that he or she has printed copies of assignments.

How will my child be counted present?

If the student completes the work and turns it in by May 6, the student will receive credit for attending school. If a student does not complete the virtual assignments by May 6, the student will be counted absent for May 1.

Questions about the assignments?

Please keep in mind that this is our first attempt at a virtual student day. It is our desire to communicate thoroughly with students and parents as to the expectations of the day. Therefore, specific information about student assignments will come directly from your school. Questions regarding specific assignments for your child should be directed to your child’s teacher(s).
