AM fAMily During the Corona Virus

Distance Learning

Attendance:

Starting Monday, March 30th, if your son or daughter is not feeling well enough to complete his or assignments on a particular day please email attendance@albertusmagnus.net by 9am that day. It is important that we know who is sick and communicate that to the teachers. Be sure to  include the student’s first name, last name, grade, and reason for absence just as you would on a regular school day. As is our regular policy it is the student’s responsibility to check OnCampus to see what they missed that day.
 
Expectations for Distance Learning:

Beginning on Monday, March 16th students are expected to be working on “Classwork” and “Homework” during the hours of the regular school schedule with some work overlapping into the evening as homework normally would (see Distance Learning Schedule below). Students are responsible for checking their school email and OnCampus by 8am each day and periodically throughout the day  for communication from teachers and administrators. In addition to general communication students are responsible for all assignments and projects teachers have posted and will continue to post on their course pages in OnCampus. Each teacher will be using methods that best suit their subject matter. Students should submit assignments and projects as directed by the faculty and in a timely manner. In turn the faculty will grade the assignments and constantly update their gradebooks. If a student has a question about a topic, assignment, project, etc. he or she should email the teacher directly. Teachers will also monitor their email and Skype from the hours of 8:30am thru 1:00pm Monday, Monday-Friday on school days.
 
Distance Learning Schedule:

We will follow the “Letter Day Schedule” posted in OnCampus on the Assistant Principal’s Page, Class Pages, Parent Pages, etc. This will help manage classes that meet twice on a six-day rotation such as art, health, music, and PE. Ideally students should be doing the bulk of their work during the hours of the regular school schedule (8:17am-2:26pm), with some work overlapping into the evening as homework normally would. Students should be aware of lessons taking place during the regular class period allotted in the schedule as opposed to assignments and projects that have a due date further along in the calendar, and plan accordingly.

We understand the challenges of distance learning and want to support our students to the best of our ability as they work to organize a manageable learning day for themselves.

Distance Learning in Action

Mr. Fevola's Computer Programming Class

Students are currently learning how to assess a problem and figure out which programming “tools” that they already know would be needed to tackle the problem.  The language they are using is Perl. 
 
The problem being reviewed here is from homework.  The students were given a .csv file (sort of like Excel).  It contained customer names, addresses and credit limits.  Customers with credit limits of at least $2000 need to be doubled.  All other customers need to be increased by $250.  The program had to figure out which customers were which, calculate the new credit limit and print out the customer names and their new credit limits without the addresses.
