Remote Academic Learning

HRMS is currently participating in Remote Learning. As we proceed forward and work together to support learning for our students below you will find some helpful information to help with this transition.

Please feel free to contact  Adam Federico at federico@danvers.org with any questions.

Students are expected to participate and complete remote learning experiences. These experiences will include direct instruction or a mini lesson, independent practice and interaction with teachers. HRMS teachers are working collaboratively with their grade level subject matter peers and within their teams to make this process as efficient as possible. We truly appreciate your anticipated patience and support as we transition into the next phase of remote learning. Here are some helpful components regarding remote learning.

  1. HRMS Weekly Updates will now come on Sunday afternoons to help everyone prepare for the upcoming week.
  2. Google Classrooms will be the hub of your child’s learning and is a place you can find information about their remote learning.
  3. Teachers are working to have remote learning posts in their Google Classrooms for 8am and will post 3-4 times per week.
  4. Teachers will schedule and communicate opportunities for direct interaction including virtual office hours, email Q and A’s and video conferences. Teachers are working together so that these times do not overlap.
  5. Students should check their danvers.org email regularly. They may need to clean them out.
  6. Remote learning assignments need to be submitted and teachers will provide due dates for many experiences.
  7. Students should read independently 30 minutes per day and use PE postings to engage in some type of physical activity each day.
  8. Students should also check their all year and Trimester 2 exploratory Google Classrooms for remote learning assignments and opportunities.
  9. Students may want to track their work using a document or log. Attached are two simple examples and they have been shared with students via their email as well.
  10. We are working to add other virtual components of our school back into students’ lives. See information below about virtual spirit days. There is a general art activity Google Classroom that any HRMS student can join. The Art Enrichment Class Code:  xhmvn6k.

For the week of March 30th – April 3rd, teachers will post accessible learning opportunities for students on individual Google Classroom pages so students can continue their learning.   Students are highly encouraged to complete these learning experiences. We are also encouraging students to read independently for at least 30 minutes a day. For social emotional learning resources, please continue to scroll down.

Social Emotional Learning

It is important to remember while we are away from school that we take time to care for ourselves and our children.  We have posted a number of social emotional learning activities that we feel will help us with the anxious time that many of us are experiencing. Please consider participating in these activities as part the academic learning tasks that we have provided.
