Dear Brave Students and Families,
Welcome back to Walton High School (WHS), virtual edition! To continue providing you with a high-quality education, your teachers have been developing online courses specifically tailored to meet your needs. These virtual courses will be delivered through Edgenuity, an accredited and approved virtual education provider. All WHS students will be enrolled in a virtual edition of their math, ELA, social studies and science courses from this school year. Students will be expected to log into Edgenuity and complete at least 50 minutes of work per day in each content area. Course work completed through Edgenuity will allow students to complete current core courses leading to promotion and graduation. Luckily, your teachers will be available virtually to provide guidance. Edgenuity has a built-in communication feature by which teachers and students can correspond. Families should also expect regular communication from WHS teachers through phone calls and/or video conferencing.
WHS, virtual edition, will begin for students on Monday, March 30th. All students are expected to log into Edgenuity, through ClassLink, during the day on Monday and begin their coursework. Teachers will be accessible to students during their normal work hours, but students may engage with Edgenuity anytime during the day or night. For guidance on how to access Edgenuity, please download the Edgenuity Login document in the resources provided below. All students should download the Virtual Learning Expectations document and read over each item carefully.
For many WHS students, this will be your first experience as a virtual learner. You are expected to employ the same best practices when learning through Edgenuity that you do when sitting in your teacher’s classroom. You are expected to engage fully with each and every lesson and activity, keep a notebook and take detailed notes for each lesson, ask questions of your teacher when you need help, keep up with your assignments, give your best effort and above all, continue building your legacy of excellence and be Brave.
For students unfamiliar with Edgenuity, please see the resources provided below to assist with trouble shooting common problems. If students have questions about any assigned courses, they should call the school before beginning work. If you need further assistance, please contact the school at 850-892-1270. Only families without internet access will be provided paper portfolios for work completion. All other students are expected to engage with Edgenuity courses. We miss you and hope to see you soon! Go Braves!
