Dear Parents and Guardians,
Versailles Exempted Village Schools has the option to participate in eDays this school year. Electronic â€śMake Upâ€ť Days, eDays, are electronic lessons that students can access at home via the web on days when school is not in session due to bad weather. ~If students complete the assignments, the day can be counted as a day of attendance. ~We have three such days available for our use this school year. These days will be used ONLY after all five calamity days have been exhausted to avoid or limit days being added to the end of the school year.
A SchoolConnects message will be sent out on the day that is declared an eDay. ~K-4 students will need to access their assignments from their building website. EDays are listed under the academic tab or at http://es.versailles.k12.oh.us/academics/eday.
Students in grades 5-12 will need to access assignments from their DarkeNet Jr. account, which is also under the academic tab on their building's website or at http://student.darke.k12.oh.us/.
Students have two weeks from the day the eDay is declared to complete the electronic lessons. These lessons are not â€śoptionalâ€ť. ~Any student, who does not complete the assignments within the two week time frame, will be marked with an unexcused absence for this day. ~
Students who do not have internet access at home or are not able to access it through other means (friend, relative, public library) may complete the work during non-instructional times at school (i.e. study hall, specials, recess, lunch break, or if prior arrangements are made before/after school). ~
It would be advisable to check out the access you have to these lessons now and even view them with your child(ren) in advance of an eDay. ~These lessons may change from the time you view them in order for them to coincide better with the content being taught at the time of the eDay. ~
All teachers will be checking email throughout the eDay to answer questions.
Again, these days will ONLY be used after all five calamity days are exhausted to avoid or limit days being added to the end of the school year. ~This means eDays might not be used at all this year (my preference) if we donâ€™t use all five calamity days. ~
