Windsor Public Schools will reopen on Tuesday, September 8th with two instructional models: Hybrid Learning and Distance Learning. The Hybrid model combines 2 days of in-person learning with 3 days of distance or at-home learning each week. The Distance model is 100% remote, i.e., students learn from home every day. Distance learning days are counted as instructional days for students. As such, distance learning assignments are not optional and should be completed as assigned. Please e-mail your teacher if you have questions.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between Hybrid Learning and Distance Learning? In Hybrid Learning, students are assigned to a group and attend school 2 days per week. Group 1 students attend school in-person on Mondays and Tuesdays and Group 2 students attend school in-person on Thursdays and Fridays (except the first week of school). In Distance Learning, students do not report to school. Distance students learn from home every day. Distance learning assignments are required and should be completed as assigned.
How will I access my distance learning assignments? Seesaw, Google Classroom and other instructional resources are available for K-12 students through ClassLink > my.classlink.com/windsorct. Students login to ClassLink using their Windsor Google account login. If students have hyphenated last names, the hyphens are not used. Student passwords vary by grade level band because students can change their own passwords. If students have trouble accessing distance learning assignments, please first check the Educational Technology for Students website. If you find no recommended resolution using the website, please reach out to your teacher.
How will attendance be taken on Distance Learning Days? Attendance will be taken by your teacher during the live synchronous lesson. Your teacher will provide a schedule for live lessons.
How do I receive support from teachers on Distance Learning Days? Students can receive support from their teachers through Seesaw (PK-2), Google Classroom (Grades 3-12), or by contacting teachers via email.
What if I don't have access to a device or the internet? All students will be assigned a device. If your household does have access to the internet, but you are unable to connect your device, please read through our guide to assist in troubleshooting home connectivity. If you find that your device is unable to access Distance Learning resources through ClassLink or you do not have access to the internet, please ask your parent or guardian contact your teacher and/or complete the Student Tech Help Desk ticket.
If my district device is not working, how can I get a Chromebook or iPad repaired? Please submit a Student Tech Help Desk ticket to request a repair on a district-owned device.
What about field trips? All school field trips are cancelled until further notice.
