Welcome King Scholars and Families:

We will start this school year different than we ever have before. Although these circumstances were unforeseen and are definitely not ideal, I am optimistic that we are entering the school year on the right track! We miss our scholars tremendously and had hoped that we would be back in session for September; however, for the safety of all of our families, the School District of Philadelphia will be 100% virtual for the first marking period. The building may be closed but King is open for virtual learning! Our teachers are excited about the virtual learning spaces they have created and hope that students will take full advantage of it. Parents, please know that we are here working to support you. This document will help you and your scholar navigate through virtual learning at Martin Luther King HS.

Even in the virtual model, our mission remains the same, “One Community, One School, One Focus, Student Success!”

Attendance:

Every class is mandatory. Students who do not log into Google Classroom (Meet) will be marked absent for that period.. If your scholar is not logged in at the beginning of every class starting with the morning meeting, you will receive a phone call from a student support coordinator. Attendance will be tracked via Infinite Campus. Continued absences will result in a meeting with Mr. Feguson, our Climate Manager and an attendance support plan will be created. We need students in class every day, on time.

The Schedule:
Students will participate in both live whole-group lessons, live small-group lessons, and pre-recorded lessons. We will use an A/B schedule with a ½ day every Friday, meaning live learning will conclude at 11:30 am. Synchronous (live) lessons (both whole-group and small-group) will take place via Google Classroom (Meet) and will also be used as the learning platform for Asynchronous (pre-recorded or self-directed) lessons. Infinite Campus will be used for attendance and grading. Each day starts with a Morning Meeting to build community, relationships and to ensure that all students are present. If your student is not logged in by 8:30, we will reach out.

Here is a sample student schedule:

Morning Meeting/Advisory  8:00  –  8:30

1st Period 8:30  – 10:00

2nd Period 10:00- 11:30

Lunch 11:30 – 12:30

3rd Period 12:30- 1:30

4th Period 1:30 – 3:04

 

A Days: Monday & Wednesday

B Days: Tuesday & Thursday

Alternating A/B Days: Every Friday (½ days)

Instruction

King staff has been working diligently to create a virtual instruction curriculum to engage all scholars. Scholars will take part in daily grade-level instruction. They will participate in rigorous online learning tasks and projects through various interactive learning tools and applications. Lessons will be conducted through the Google Meet outlet and assignments will be uploaded and submitted through Google Classroom as well as Pre-recorded lessons and webinars.

Technology
If you are in need of a Chromebook they can be picked up from the front entrance of King HS on or before 8/31/2020. Address: 6100 Stenton Avenue, Phila, PA 19138

For more support and information call the tech support line (215) 400-4444 or email familytechsupport@philasd.org

If a device, was lost, stolen, or damaged please file a police report with PPD and email the DC# to the principal.

Parent/Guardian  and Student Expectations

Create a designated space for your student to succeed; a quiet place to complete work and study

Refrain from interrupting class with questions for teachers, please send an email and the teacher will respond or call the school number. Allow 24-48 hours for a  response for both phone calls and emails.

Maintain a respectful and appropriate tone in all communications with other students, teachers, and staff.

The student Code of Conduct, Bullying, and Harassment policies will remain in place while we are engaged in virtual learning, so remember to be respectful of the thoughts, feelings, and opinions of others.

Cameras must be ON and students ACTIVELY participating in class. If there is a photo it must be of the student, not other icons or pics.

Uniform Policy
Students will be considered ready to learn in their school shirts, uniform pants, or jeans. Refrain from wearing scarves, bonnets, do-rags, hoods, and hats! ONLY religious head coverings are allowed. No pajamas please, we are preparing for our future!

I look forward to the collaboration with students, parents, guardians, and teachers this school year. I know that our virtual program will exhibit and fosters ownership of a rich school culture. It is the responsibility of all stakeholders to support our King kids to do well at school and in their lives. I am excited to serve this school community and vow a commitment to work together as we strive to fulfill our school’s mission and vision.

The foundation of our future accomplishments will be to continue to provide our students with academic experiences that are rigorous, relevant, and build lasting relationships. It is important that everyone who steps through our virtual doors –teachers, staff, students, parents, and community members – are excited to be here! This attitude will allow us to embrace and meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive and nurturing environment. I look forward to continuing the MLK legacy with our current students!

 

Sincerely,

Keisha Q. Wilkins, Principal
