Remote classes begin Wednesday

WEB EXCLUSIVE Even though Governor Gavin Newsom announced Tuesday that most California schools will likely remain closed through the end of the school year due to COVID-19, Convent & Stuart Hall students will begin remote learning on March 18.

President Ann Marie Krejcarek sent an email to the Convent & Stuart Hall community this evening in which she outlined a new alternating Red/Blue schedule.

Convent & Stuart Hall High School’s daily schedule will run Tuesday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. starting tomorrow with Mondays as teacher preparation days.

Tuesdays and Thursdays will follow the Blue Day schedule with E, F, G and H Periods and Wednesdays and Fridays will follow the Red Day schedule with A, B, C and D Periods. There will no longer be flipped schedules on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Friday mornings will also include community time — Advisory, Chapel or Class Meetings — 9 to 9:20 a.m.

Students should continue to wear attire appropriate for the school day, sit in a distraction free environment and refrain from snacking and using other devices during online class meetings via Zoom, according to Krejcarek’s.

Students will continue to use the Blackbaud Learning Management System to access classwork and homework assignments, and can also check SFCorConnect, the school’s new resource for organizing the remote learning plan if they have additional questions.

Students who are unsure how to meet their classes on Wednesday or Thursday should contact their teachers via email for instructions, according to Head of School Rachel Simpson.
