Student Attendance and Flexible Instruction Procedures

DAILY ATTENDANCE

Each morning, a link to a Google Attendance Form will be emailed to every Little Flower student at 6:00 AM and it must be completed by 10:00 AM.  In order for a student to be considered present for the day, the student must click on the link and complete the form. If a student is sick, or unable to participate on a particular flexible instructional day, a parent/guardian must email Sr. Margaret Peter at smpeter@lfchs.org to inform her that their child will be absent for the day. This email will be considered a student’s absence note. If a doctor’s note is obtained, please share it by email, or the first day your child returns to school, please bring it to the Office of Student Services.

If the Google Attendance Form is not completed by 10:00 AM, the student will be marked absent in PowerSchool; therefore, a phone call will be sent to parents if a student has not completed the form and their parent has not emailed smpeter@lfchs.org.

REMOTE INSTRUCTION

Beginning on Tuesday, March 17, Little Flower teachers will begin posting assignments for each class daily by 10 AM on their online learning platform, such as Google Classroom. On average, student assignments should take 30 minutes to complete for each course. A student carrying a course load of seven (7) courses would have on average three and a half (3 1/2) hours of coursework each day. Each teacher will communicate daily a three (3) consecutive hour window of availability between 10 AM - 2:30 PM during which time teachers and students can connect online to facilitate student questions. Students will be held accountable for completing assignments according to the teacher's instructions.  Students are expected to check their school email every day. 

GUIDANCE OFFICE AVAILABILITY

Guidance staff is available to you and your child during the Flexible Instruction Days.    Mrs. Sheridan, Director of Guidance, will have a dedicated window of time, 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM, during the academic day when she will be available by e-mail to address concerns. Please contact Mrs. Sheridan at ksheridan@lfchs.org.  Additionally, Ms. Rebecca Malfara, School Social Worker, will be available by email at rmalfara@lfchs.org.

Updates will be posted on our website and communicated through email and School Messenger.
