Remote Learning Guidelines March 2020
Last Updated: March 17th, 2020
During this transition to a Remote Learning platform, Servite High School’s team of educators plan to continue to provide quality instructional and learning opportunities for students. Students should expect to engage in academic work on a regular basis during this time. While remote learning will look differently from teacher to teacher and subject to subject, our goal is to maintain the momentum of academic learning throughout this process. This document provides an overview of how teachers will deliver information to students and how students will access this information. While we know that learning in an online platform will look very different than in a brick and mortar classroom, our teachers are committed to assisting students every step of the way. Teachers also understand that each student learns differently and that there will be a learning curve for all students to become comfortable with an online learning environment. If students are unwell or unable to complete work, please take good care of yourself and prioritize your health. Please let your teachers know if this is the case. They will understand and work with you.

Distance Learning Guideline for Students:
- Teachers will be providing information and instruction via Google Classroom. o Students are expected to check Google Classroom sites each day for any updates and/or other information about assignments and deadlines for each course.
- A Remote Learning Student Site has been created for students to assist with tips and strategies to help while working in a remote learning setting. Students will be sent a link to access this site.
- A weekly agenda along with daily assignments will be posted by each teacher.
- Teachers will offer optional virtual office hours to assist students with questions or other clarification needed.
- Teachers will monitor students’ online engagement with the course content, therefore it is vital that students keep current with all work.
- Teachers will continue to grade assignments and post in Aeries within 2 academic days.
- Students should communicate any technical difficulties to teachers prior to any deadlines.
- All standards of student conduct, including academic integrity, remain in full effect during this time of remote learning. Our Academic Policy can be found in the Parent/Student Handbook posted on the Servite website.
- IT support is available to students while operating on a remote learning platform.
- Please contact the IT Department at: firstname.lastname@example.org
- The IT Department can also schedule appointments if computers need servicing of any kind.
- School counselors will be available and will have individual meetings by appointment if necessary. They will continue to provide services to their students throughout the time we are away from the physical campus.
Please remember that school is still in session - just in a different space. Plan to set aside 3-4 hours each day to work on your online learning requirements.
Remote Learning Guidelines for Parents/Guardians:
- Servite High School’s Remote Learning Plan is to continue to provide quality instructional and learning opportunities for students. We realize that an online learning environment will look differently than in-person courses. Our teachers are prepared to prioritize delivering high-quality meaningful learning opportunities for our students over quantity.
- Teachers will be using Google Classroom to communicate regularly with your sons. Information about assignments and due dates will be posted here. Only students can access Google Classroom; please ask your sons to log in so you, too, can view information posted from teachers.
- Teachers will post a weekly agenda outlining any announcements, daily assignments, and deadlines for the week.
- Teachers will offer (optional) virtual office hours for students. Information about how to engage with teachers during office hours will be posted on each teacher’s weekly agenda.
- If your son has any technical difficulties or questions, please contact our IT Department at: email@example.com
- All standards of student conduct, including academic integrity, remain in full effect during this time of remote learning.
- Student workload may include: reading/watching/listening, engaging with peers via discussion boards and virtual live classroom settings., attending class office hours, assignments/learning tasks, etc. Advanced Placement courses may assign additional work or practice tests as needed.
School counselors will be available and will have individual meetings by appointment if necessary. They will continue to provide services to their students throughout the time we are away from the physical campus.
If you or your son has a course question, please contact teachers directly.
How to be Successful with Online Learning
Tips for Parents and Students
You will need the following set up and ready to go:
- Student laptop in working order (including charger)
- Gmail password
- Google classroom access for all classrooms
- Online textbook credentials (username/password) Email your teachers if you have questions about access.
- Set up a workspace that will set you up for success. Your comfy bed is not the best option for working on schoolwork during this time.
SET UP A ROUTINE
- Provide structure for your day. Take breaks or intersperse activity as you need it, but try to work during times you would normally be working.
- Set up times for all of the following (remotely): work/learning, family, chores, activity/exercise, hobbies, decompression, and self care.
- Stay committed to self care: hygiene, plenty of rest, hydration, and nutrition will build a solid foundation for you to be successful.
Just because you’re remote, doesn’t mean you’re alone!
- Take advantage of the teacher’s office hours online. Make your brain formulate a question or two when you’re reviewing notes, and follow up during office hours. Be sure to communicate via email, google docs, or other communication methods available by your teachers.
- Set up a remote peer study group: If there’s a group of students you are comfortable with, set up time to connect and collaborate on any questions or feedback you may have.

Even though we made every effort to grant the course requests your son made last Spring, one or more electives may have changed due to scheduling conflicts. Also, please be aware that Priory and athletic assignments have not yet been finalized. Please do not contact your son's assigned counselor as they are not in the office over the summer and will not be able to help. The counseling office will be closed from July 29th through August 5th.
All new students and parents (incoming Class of 2023 and transfers) will have access only through the parent's account on Aeries. You will need to use your login credentials that were automatically sent to you from the Aeries system. If you did not receive an email, or forgot your password, simply click the "Forgot Password?" on the login screen and follow the prompts. Use the email that you inputted when you registered your son. If the system does not recognize any email you enter, please contact the office at 714-774-7575 x1170 to verify the email address on your account.

Definition of Work Study Hours
Work Study Hours are not the same as Campus Ministry Service Hours and are booked separately and may not be credited twice. Work Study hours are primarily on campus, and working for Trinity Corp enterprises. Campus Ministry Service Hours are primarily working off campus in churches, parishes, the community, with the homeless, and are considered "corporal works of mercy" with no personal gain or compensation.
Non-Work Study Students
A limited number of students, not on financial aid, are admitted to the program in September. These students are allowed to work no more than 100 hours at a rate of $8.50 per hour for a total of $850. Parents are not allowed to participate. Non-Work Study students who would like to participate should email Peter DeGrood to discuss at email@example.com.
Intern Office Location
The Intern office is located in the priory building. The Intern office hours are 3-4pm every school day. Summer hours will vary.
Contact: Chris Gonse, Director of Trinity Corp Leadership at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All job sites and work are posted on our online manager called SignupGenius. You will need to contact the Human Resources team in order to register and begin work. Contact Michael Madrigal at email@example.com.
PARENT JOB SCHEDULING
Parents can create their own sign up using the home email following the instructions listed below. Please be aware that jobs specified for student only may not be worked by a parent. Remember, parents are not required to work any hours. It is a gift to your son if you choose to do so.
HOW TO SIGN UP: STUDENTS AND PARENTS
If you have any further questions, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is a two-day grace period after the close of a month to authenticate or dispute the totals. Interns are expected to present their dispute in person to the Personnel Office. All hours are posted to the Student Portal monthly.
All workers are instructed to meet the Facilities Team in the patio of the Campus Store. A grace period of 15 minutes will be allowed before the worker will be designated as a "no show."
POSTING OF INTERN WORK HOURS
All intern hours are submitted and verified by signed and totaled time cards. Interns are expected to verify their hours personally each month. Failure to submit a time card correctly, with totaled hours and signature of authentication at the end of each month period will result in a rejected time card. Interns and their parents are contacted by email each month notifying them of the failure to perform proper procedure.
40+ PLUS PROGRAM
Interns who are interested in working more than 40 hours must apply after they have completed their 40 hours. An interview will be conducted, the intern must maintain a 3.5 GPA and have not received any disciplinary notations during that school year. No additions to the program will be made after the third quarter. The cap for hours is 235 hrs per school year. This program is not recommended for freshmen due to workload freshmen year.
REMEMBER: We are all in this together. This is new territory for everyone. Reach out for help and contribute to an environment of compassion. We will modify our online learning guidelines as necessary in the best interest of our students.
