• Hybrid Learning Information

    Hello, EPS families!

    Our intent has always been to bring students back to classrooms as soon as it is safe to do so, starting with our elementary school students. Based on guidance from the Erie County Department of Health, we feel confident in launching a hybrid model of instruction for our students in preK-5 grade for the second quarter of the school year. 

    You can find complete details in a letter from Superintendent Brian Polito here, and answers to some of your most frequently asked questions here.

    To help us plan for the quarter ahead, we’re asking you to complete a form committing your child to continued participation in 100% remote learning OR participation in the hybrid model of instruction for the second quarter of the school year. You can find the form on your child's Schoology page. If you have more than one child in elementary school, please fill out a separate form for each child. Please complete the form(s) by Friday, Oct. 23.

    Thank you!

     

     

     


     

     

     

     

     

    Reopening Remotely: Let's Get Started

     

    Welcome back to another new school year, EPS family! We're so excited that we're together again, even if it's not in person. This school year is going to look a little different, and we know remote learning is going to present some challenges for our students and families. We're here to help you every step of the way. 

    School begins remotely for all students on Tuesday, Sept. 8. All students are expected to log on to Schoology by the start of every school day. Are you ready? 

     

    STEP ONE: Parents, please read this important letter from our teachers to better understand what remote instruction will look like. You can view sample school day schedules here

     

    STEP TWO: Watch the videos below to make sure you're ready on Day One. Before you do, make sure you have the following information handy: 

    • Your user name. This is your six-digit student ID number (same as your lunch number).
    • Your password. Student passwords are assigned to students by their school and is the same password students used in the spring.

    You'll need your user name and password to log into your Chromebook and to Schoology, which will serve as your online classroom. (Parents: If your child has forgotten their Student ID number or password or if your child is new to the district, please contact your school directly. Contact information for all schools can be found at eriesd.org/schools.)
