What is an E-Learning Day?
In 2017, Minnesota passed legislation. E-Learning Days are intended to help make up for lost instructional time on days when students are unable to attend school in-person due to inclement weather.
How will families be notified of an E-Learning Day?
Families will receive an automated phone call, email, and — if they have opted-in — a text message from Parnassus informing them of the school closure and E-Learning Day.
To opt-in to receive text message alerts from Parnassus, text YES to 67-587. Please note that standard messaging rates for your wireless carrier may apply.
Messages will also be posted on the school website, Infinite Campus portal, and social media, and will appear on Parnassus designated local media outlet, WCCO.
These messages and alerts will be sent to families at least two hours before the normal school start time of 8:00am. Every effort will be made to provide notice to families with as much advance notice as possible.
E-Learning assignments and activities will be posted by 8:00am.
What are the expectations for students?
Earlier this year, students received paper copies of their E-Learning Day assignments and were instructed to keep these in a safe place at home. Digital copies will also be available in Infinite Campus and will be posted on the E-Learning Day in the event one is called.
Students will turn in their completed paper-based work to teachers when they return to school. Students will have up to five school days after a designated E-Learning Day to turn in the assignments.
When will teachers and staff be available for questions and support?
Parnassus faculty will be available between 10:00-11:30am and 12:30-3:00pm for questions and support. If you leave a voicemail message for a teacher, they will receive an electronic copy in their email inbox.
