Virtual Assignments

Dear Thompkins parents,

The state of Indiana requires all schools to be in session 180 days. The EVSC School Board has approved making up the remaining instructional time by using the Indiana Department of Education’s Virtual Option. Last year, EVSC implemented the Virtual Option for making up missed instructional days. Because of the work of teachers and administrators, and support of families and community partners, students are able to make up days of lost learning through virtual means closer to the time of actual instruction, rather than adding days at the end of the school year. 

Virtual work will be assigned and due using the following schedule:

Virtual #1 will be assigned 11/18 and due 11/25.

Lesson plans will be updated by 3:30 p.m. on Monday 11/18.

Virtual #2 will be assigned 12/2 and due 12/9.

Lesson plans will be updated by 3:30 p.m. on Monday 12/2.

Math and ELA assignments will be distributed to students and available to parents on the Thompkins website. Each assignment will list virtual office hours during which teachers will be available to answer student and parent questions. 

Classrooms will be open for students who need access to the internet to complete assignments. Students may stay after school to work and can be picked up before 4:15 p.m. or ride the bus home at that time. Classroom support is available 2:30-4:15 p.m. on the following schedule:

Virtual #1: Mon 11/18, Wed 11/20, Thurs 11/21, Fri 11/22
Virtual #2: Mon 12/2, Tue 12/3, Wed 12/4, Thurs 12/5

If you have questions about virtual assignments, please contact your child’s teacher or utilize virtual office hours. I am also happy to answer any questions about the virtual options.
