October 14, 2013, and February 17, 2014, are designated as eDays. An eDay is a day in which students receive their classroom instruction electronically. These days  require students to work at home and will not require physical attendance in school buildings. eDay instruction is linked to grade level standards, is real-time learning and linked to in-class learning. It should reflect a normal school day and is a valuable day of instruction.

 

These days have been designed as professional learning days for teachers and the vast majority of our staff will be in training all day. Students will have access to online instruction by way of teacher websites, grade level or department websites, or teacher Moodlerooms.

 

Approximately 98% of our students have access to the Internet at home. In addition, the Emmet O’Neal Library provides computer access for students until 9:00 PM on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, until 6:00 PM on Wednesday, and until 5:00 PM on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. However, if Internet accessibility is a concern for any Mountain Brook student, parents should contact the student’s teacher for other arrangements.

 

We will accommodate families with specific needs.

 

Our teachers communicate with parents and/or students in greater detail as the specific eDay draws near. eDay assignments will be posted prior to the eDay to assist in accommodating family schedules.

 

Questions about an eDay, should be directed to the student’s teacher or principal.

If I can assist you in any way, please do not hesitate to contact me.
