Electronic Lessons Keeps Students Learning During Snow Days
EATON -- Students in the Eaton School district have already missed eight days of school. The first five were considered calamity days that they don't have to make up. Days 6,7,and 8 were considered E-Days, meaning they have to complete electronic lessons online.
"There are three different sets of lessons each of the three days," said Eaton director of education Cindy Neanen.
These E-lessons are for students grades K-12. They have a lesson for each class and they have two weeks to complete it.
"I got like three or four more to do and then I am done," said 10th grader Connor Olsen who is still finishing up his E-lessons from their snow day on January 8th. "We've got to get it all turned in this Friday if we don't you get considered as missing school."
Having the three E-Days delays having to add on to the end of the school year.
"Sometimes when you add them to the end-of-the-year that's just what they are time added to the end of the year," said Neanen. "Really grades have probably already been kind of determined. So getting true academic engagement it's much better to do this way."
"I would rather have the E-Days," said Conner. "They just seem much easier."
But Conner's mom would like to keep it traditional.
"A lot of people don't have computers and if they need help what kind of help can they get," said Barbara Olsen. "I think it's better to just go ahead and have it done in school because that way you know they're doing it and then it's done right."
Teachers are available to answer questions on the E-Lessons by email, but students are also welcome to complete the lessons in school.
"We allowed time during study called and special periods," said Neanen.
Since Eaton has used up their five calamity days and their three E-Days, if they get any more snow-days, they will either have to add days to the school year or make some school days a little longer.
