Primary/EY Online Learning Schedule
During this period of online learning, Primary and Early Years will follow a timetable that matches CAIS’ regular school hours (7:55-3:35). Each class will share their timetable with parents to be referenced at home and create a structured learning environment, including established break and lunch times, reasonable times for going to bed and waking up.
These timetables will maintain the same amount of available contact time with all of the students’ regular teachers. In addition, Homeroom teachers will include set times for parents to connect with them to provide guidance for at-home support of student learning.
Early Years and Primary Teachers will upload supporting materials to Toddle. These can be viewed and downloaded from this platform. Students can upload videos and photos of their learning to the lessons set on Toddle Student.
