The new Trevian Remote Learning schedule had a great start today, with teachers using many different types of instruction to connect and build community with students in this new environment. Several classes began using Zoom video conferencing as one way to connect students with teachers and peers. The vast majority of these sessions also went well, though there were a few bumps with the behavior of some students. We sent a message to all students on Canvas today to remind them of behavior expectations during remote learning. Teachers also are taking additional steps to protect their Zoom learning environments, since this method of teaching and learning is new to all of us.

Here is the message we are sharing with students about Zoom video conferencing expectations, also posted on the Trevian Remote Learning page:

The use of video conferencing allows us to create a sense of community, connect with each other, and learn together. The virtual space should be welcoming and safe for all students and should be treated in the same respectful manner we expect in the regular classroom. All school rules apply as detailed in the Student Guidebook . Students violating these rules are subject to disciplinary measures.

Zoom video conferencing expectations:

  • Use your official NTHS Zoom account connected to your NTHS email address
  • Identify yourself with the name you normally use in your classroom
  • Do not share username, password or Zoom links with others
  • Normal rules regarding dress, language, and behavior apply
