Westlake Academy Distance Learning Plan

Distance Learning

I hope that you and your families are doing well. Thank you to the families that responded to our Google form, sent Friday. We received 255 requests to pick up iPads, IB art projects, textbooks, and other items from campus.

Our staff is working to clean the iPads and locate other items requested and have them ready for you to pick up. Please know that we had to prioritize retrieving items due to time constraints and the possibility of a Tarrant County at-home quarantine order. Tomorrow, Tuesday, March 24, we will utilize the regular PYP carline and will begin at 9 am following the schedule below. In order to ensure the safety of all, please remain in your car and we will bring your items to you.

9:00 am to 10:30 am - last names that begin with A-H

11:00 am to 12:30 pm - last names that begin with I-P

1:00 pm to 2:30 pm - last names that begin with Q-Z

Please use your carpool tags to identify your student in the line (if you do not have one, please write your name in bold letters on a sheet of paper and place it on your dashboard). We ask that you please remain in your car during this process.

Distance Learning begins Wednesday, March 25. We have created a Distance Learning website to help us communicate expectations. You can view this site here.

Please know that our commitment to educate your student is unwavering, even in the face of this new challenge. It will take all of us: teachers, students, and parents for this to be successful. On our distance learning website, we outlined the guidelines for parents, students, and teachers. Please take a moment to acquaint yourself with these and to go over them with your students. As with anything new, it will take all of us sometime. This is a great opportunity for our students to learn self-advocacy skills. It is critical that your child engages in the learning, complete assigned work, turn work into his/her teacher on time, and seek assistance when needed.

These are extraordinary times that are challenging us to rise to the occasion like none other in our memories. And, in the spirit of IB, we should strive to model the IB Learner Profile attributes of being open-minded as well as risk-takers as we navigate this new normal. I have no doubt that we will all rise to the occasion and emerge stronger than ever.

Thank you for all that you do to help us meet this very critical challenge.
