eLearning Information

During our eLearning days, students should utilize their device to complete course content that teachers have placed in Canvas. Content will be updated on a daily basis and available for students by 9 a.m. each day.

What should a student do on an eLearning Day?

Revised E-learning Daily Schedule

Students will utilize Canvas for class instructional material.

Students are required to complete an attendance form for each class each school day. The teacher will post the attendance form on their Canvas page along with daily instructions and reminders by 9 a.m. Students may complete this attendance form at any time throughout the day to be considered present. Failure to do so will result in a student being marked unexcused for that particular class and work submitted will not receive credit.

Students are required to complete and submit all coursework as defined by the teacher.

Published coursework may be completed at the student’s own pace as long as due dates are met.

Students are expected to be aware of and participate in any prearranged virtual meetings and/or assessments for a class via Canvas. These will be communicated to students at least two days prior and held during the prescribed class period as per our eLearning Schedule.

All teachers will be available online daily for student questions via a Canvas discussion board during office hours from 3:15-4 p.m. The preferred mode of communication for an immediate teacher response should be this discussion board.

Students should expect a delayed response if they communicate with teachers via email.

Teachers will do their best to respond to an email within 24 hours.

What will a teacher do on an eLearning Day?

Teachers will have course content and the attendance form posted by 9 a.m.

Teachers will be available between the hours of 3:15-4 p.m. via Canvas discussion board for student support.

Teachers will communicate any required class meetings and/or assessments via Canvas at least two days in advance; no more than two required class meetings per class, per week will be arranged.

Teachers will make every effort to answer questions promptly.

Teachers will grade student work and enter in Canvas in a timely fashion.

What should a parent/guardian do on an eLearning day?

Ensure that your child logs into Canvas each day and completes all assigned course work and the attendance form for each class.

Ensure that your child is available for any prearranged class meetings and/or assessments.

Encourage students to work in a space that is free from distractions and conducive to learning.

Monitor Canvas so that you are certain your child is keeping up with assignments.

If your child is ill, please call the Guerin Catholic attendance line at (317) 660-0404 by 9 a.m. to report the illness.

Discourage gatherings at places like a friend’s house, restaurants and coffee shops.

Please know we continue to follow the guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization. This situation is fluid and decisions moving forward will continue to be made in consultation with the county and state health departments, the Office of Catholic Schools, the public school superintendents in Hamilton County and our partner schools.

Please continue to pray for this situation and know how much we appreciate your patience and understanding.
