Temporary Distance Learning Plan

TEMPORARY 100% DISTANCE LEARNING PLAN

Horizon Honors Schools will provide distance learning for all students in Grades K-12 beginning Monday, August 17. 

  • This is LIVE synchronous instruction with your child’s Horizon Honors teachers in real-time. Please note: this is different than the emergency online learning that occurred in 4th quarter. Synchronous learning is when a group of students engage in learning at the same time.
  • Students will be expected to engage in schoolwork during their scheduled school day times below. Live whole-class instruction will occur every school day from approximately 8 a.m. to noon, with independent at-home work, small group instruction, small group intervention, student services, student support, and limited extra-curriculars in the afternoon.
  • Specialized services such as special education, 504 plans, and requirements for English language learners will be provided.
  • All courses will be taught as scheduled, including all specials and electives, except for student intern. Anyone scheduled to be a student intern will be contacted by their counselor as soon as possible with details.
  • Attendance is mandatory and will be taken at the beginning of every learning block. Lessons will not be recorded. Attendance procedures are available in the Horizon Honors School Family Handbook.
