      Dear Parents and Students,

      Welcome to the Extended Learning Resource Page.  This page was created to provide students working from home with access to assignments, links, assessments, and practice resources.  Schools will be closed from Tuesday, September 8 unitl the first week of October for virtual online learning only for our first phase of reopening. Additional information and daily updates can be found on the district’s COVID-19 Resource Page found at https://www.orange.k12.nj.us/domain/3058.


      School Hours:

      We will be having googlemeets sessions daily from 8:30-12:30. Please make sure your child is prompt and ready to learn and work. Class schedules have been sent to parents who have accepted classdojo invites. This ensures that private and confidential infromation is kept. The googlemeets class code is as follows: meet.google.com/cda-bhdk-ukb.

      This code will the be regular code used for our sessions and will be consistant so you do not have to look for a code on a regular basis.

      In addition to our 8:30-12:30 googlemeets sessions students will be expected to be working on assigned classwork from 1:00 until 3:20. This classwork will appear as either on google classroom or classdojo(instructions will be given on classdojo. This will also be time for students to go on Iready, System44, and Spelling/VocabularyCity.


      Assignments will be posted on google classroom on a regular basis. Students are to complete the assignments by the assigned due date between 12:30-3:20. Assignments will be individualized in many cases or for small groups based on learning levels.
