Porter Township Schools Weekly Update: Virtual Snow Day Make-Up Days

porter-township-schools-logoAs was in our PTSC Weekly Update last week and also in letters sent home from your child's school--we have been working hard to be ready to do Virtual (online) Inclement weather days should we have another day when the weather or conditions are so bad that we cannot have school as we typically have school in our school buildings. We are excited about the possibility of not having to delay instruction because the weather is bad outside or the conditions to dangerous to travel to school.

We have been discussing our snow day make-up dates which are scheduled for February 13, 2015 and April 6, 2015. We have decided to make these Virtual (online) make-up days. This means that school will be in session--but that students will not physically be present in the school building. Teachers will make sure students have their learning activities for the day by 9 am on February 13, 2015 (and April 6, 2015). This will be similar to what we do at BGHS and BGMS for our online learning days each month--only all students K-12 will participate.

Our hope is that the February 13, 2015 date is our first opportunity to have a Virtual (online) day and will give all of us plenty of time to be ready. Watch for more information to come from your school about our first Virtual Make-Up Day! If you have questions, make sure to contact your child's principal.
