We hope you and our students are well and in the best of health. We are now ready to start the next phase of our e learning programme commencing Friday, June 05, 2020 Inshallah. We therefore wanted to update you in this regard and provide some clarity on how we have designed the programme.
The main aim for our e learning programme for the time period June 5, 2020 till July 14, 2020 is as follows:
a) to ensure active engagement of our children
b) to teach them the core concepts and skills as per their syllabus from where it was disconnected due to school closure due to COVID 19. This will provide the base for them to be promoted to the next class.
c) to schedule the programme in a manner that there are minimum clashes in the timetable for students of different classes. This has been done keeping in mind that there may not be IT equipment for every child at home to work on.
d) to ensure screen time for children is age appropriate and not excessive.
Our online programme is a combination of live interactive teaching along with videos and assignments that students will be required to complete. Live teaching will be done using ZOOM for senior classes (Grade VIII – X ) and through the Google Meet link in Google Classrooms for junior classes (Playgroup till Grade VII). Work for grade levels (II till X) will be posted in the Google classrooms whereas for students of Playgroup to Grade I work will be delivered to their homes bi monthly.
It is imperative for students to attend online lessons and complete their assigned tasks. Student performance will be monitored and e learning will operate as a virtual school. The rules and regulations for students and guidelines for parents will be shared with you. We request you to go through these documents carefully.
Please note this is new for our students as well as for us. We request your support and cooperation to ensure that this is a success Inshallah. As we go through unprecedented times, full of uncertainty, let us join hands together and light the way for our children.
The instructions for our e learning programme and information about promotion are shared herein below for your perusal. If you have any queries you can contact your respective branches. For any general queries please call LACAS Milestone Upper Mall 0335-1118996 and LACAS Milestone Valencia 0335-1110889.
