This Guide to Distance Learning is designed to give students and parents the basic information they will need to navigate the distance learning experience at the middle school, and can be used as a reference. It includes information about the calendar, distance learning plan and policies, school policies, and student information as it pertains to distance learning. For more specific information please visit our webpage at www.mvschools.org/ms and the Mill Valley Middle School Student Handbook (contains all the general information)
Stakeholder Roles in Distance Learning
The saying goes “with adversity comes opportunity.” While we begin the 2020-2021 school year under an evolving and ever-changing landscape, we remain committed to navigating our year together, whether it be in distance learning, hybrid learning, or with all of us back on campus, as one community. This is an opportunity for us to all come together in support of the academic, social, and emotional needs of all our children, families and staff. We are truly all in this together, and we each play a role (students, families, teachers, administrators, counselors, administrative assistants, custodians, maintenance workers, instructional assistants, food service workers, etc) in supporting one another, and lifting each other up. Distance learning will look different from traditional learning. A hybrid model will look different than traditional learning. Being able to have all students on campus will look different than traditional learning. While learning will look different this year, we all share a common goal in working together through this global pandemic. All of us look forward to beginning our important work together, as we strive to provide the best possible education experience for our students.
