Decorum for Live Virtual Classes:

  • Like an in-person HLN classroom, our online classrooms are informed by traditional pedagogy. A knowledgeable, enthusiastic teacher carefully leads students into an understanding of each subject. Classrooms are quiet, orderly, and disciplined. Lessons are incremental, content is age-appropriate. 
  • Log in several minutes early to ensure you are ready to start on time.
  • Come ready to participate fully.
  • Use your real name on the screen.
  • Use an unmodified background.
  • Be in dress code.
  • Turn your video on so your teacher can see you.
  • Raise your hand for permission to speak.
  • Have your device on a flat service, preferably at eye level.
  • Students’ full attention should be on the class and they should not communicate virtually during class on other devices with classmates or others (e.g. texting on a phone while in class on another device, or in another open window in the device).
  • Be prepared with class materials and pens/pencils/highlighters before class.
  • Take care of personal needs before class.

Class Recordings: HLN intends to record live classes. However, these recordings should be considered a courtesy for students who are ill or who have an emergency absence. Students are expected to attend classes live. Human or technical error may prevent a recording from taking place or being available after the fact.

Keep in mind:

  • Parent Teacher Book Club this year features Homer’s Odyssey. Learn more here and start reading for our October 16th meeting.
  • HLN is a partnership with parents. Know your part in the Circle of Responsibility.
