List of 9 items.

  • Essential Questions

    • One of the overarching instructional goals of our plan is to move toward an interdisciplinary model that uses essential questions to connect the learning across all subject areas.

    • An essential question will be designed for every three-week interval and all faculty members will use the essential question to guide the learning in their specific subject area. 

    • An example of an essential question for the first trimester would be: Who am I? Students would explore their identity and their inherent value and worth as individuals during the three-week interval. Who am I as a reader, writer, scientist, artist, mathematician, musician, innovator, researcher, athlete, community member, learner, etc.?
  • E-Learning

    The school year will begin in the e-learning model until at least September 11, 2020. LJCDS has applied for an elementary school waiver with San Diego County to get approval to begin in-person learning. 

    . These learning plans will be used for both e-learning and on-campus learning models and will be posted each week on classroom-specific Google Classroom sites (Grades 3-4) and Seesaw journals (kindergarten–Grade 2). The learning plans will outline the content, skills and activities that will be covered in each subject area for that week and will include all links to Zoom sessions and required resources.

     and . These sample e-learning schedules provide a general idea of the format for daily learning activities if we are in a full e-learning model for all students. Each classroom will have a specific schedule that will allow for a combination of asynchronous and synchronous learning that will occur in whole groups, small groups, and one-on-one Zoom sessions.
  • Hybrid Model

    The LJCDS hybrid model combines face-to-face learning and synchronous learning for students. In a few cases, some students will connect synchronously with their teachers and classmates from home. More details to follow as we learn how many students will need to learn from home.
  • Communication/Technology

    • Kindergarten, Grade 1 and Grade 2 will utilize  as a learning platform, digital portfolio and communication resource.

    • Grades 3 and 4 will use  as a learning platform, digital portfolio and communication resource.

    • Kindergarten through Grade 4 will have that will be posted weekly on Seesaw and Google Classroom.

    • will be used if needed when students are not on campus or when a teacher needs to stream to another classroom on campus.

    • We will also be piloting the use of a robotic mount that tracks and records a moving person in a few Lower School classrooms.
  • Early Care/Extended Day

    Morning drop-off for Early Care will start at 7:30 a.m. Lower School Extended Day will take place on the LS playground from 3:30-5:30 p.m. for a fee. There is no need to sign up. All students not picked up by a parent/guardian by 3:30 p.m. will be walked to Extended Day by their teacher. Parents/guardians can pick up their children from the Early Childhood Center (ECC) parking lot. Please note: all other parking lots will be closed. The security guard in the ECC lot will notify the appropriate Extended Day group when the parent/guardian arrives and the child(ren) will be walked over to the ECC lot. Parents/guardians remain in the car. Contact Jessica Lacoff-Roberts with any questions.
  • Learning Resource Center

    LRC support services will continue and Learning Specialists will push into assigned indoor and outdoor spaces to work with students 1:1 or within cohorts.
  • Physical Education

    Lower School students will participate in daily physical education outdoors and in the gym with other members of their cohorts. 
  • Arrival Process

    The arrival process to school will be different this year to ensure the health and safety of our community.
  • Return to Campus Checklist

    We have created a checklist to help you prepare for on-campus learning.
