Parallel Distance Learning

Remote instruction and parallel distance learning will not be offered in the 2021-2022 school year.

To meet the challenges of the pandemic restrictions, SFWS previously offered a Parallel Distance Learning Program for students in Grades 1 - 12 who were unable to join in-person school due to COVID-19 reasons previously discussed with the administration or known exposure/symptoms unrelated to non-essential travel. This program included synchronous, live-streamed lessons via Zoom for most classes and asynchronous material for subjects that could not be presented live. Teachers engaged remote student in class activities and followed up independently when needed. Teachers also used the online Class Bulletin Board to reinforce the at-home schedule. Students participating in Parallel Distance Learning were provided a Zoom link through the MySFWS portal for all their classes.
