Virtual Learning Days

Dear McGary Middle School Parent:

Already during the 2016-17 school year, one day was missed due to a snow event on Thursday, January 5. Based on feedback from the previous two school years of successfully utilizing the virtual make-up option, EVSC will immediately use the virtual option to make up recently missed instruction.

During the “virtual” education time, the state requires that students do the assignments given to them by their teachers, just as they would on a normal school day -- except that all or parts of the lessons involve accessing online learning systems or other Internet-related resources, as dictated by their teachers.  Teachers will be available for specified time periods during the week to help students.  Students will be able to access teacher help through their online Learning Management System, or via email. Students can also do their virtual work outside of the pre-determined times.

Specified classrooms will be open for students to work on their assignments Monday through Friday from 2:30pm-4:00pm.   If they would rather work at home, that is fine, as well.

Community Partners are also planning to have their Internet accessible for children.  Below is a list of partners that have offered their facilities, so that students would have access to computers and Internet.

  • The Boys and Girls Club
  • The Dream Center
  • Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library (all branches)
  • YMCA
  • Carver Community Center - Available Monday-Friday
  • Blue Grass United Methodist Church

Your child’s teacher will be as hands-on as they are in the classroom, but these lessons are to be completed during after-school hours during each week. Just as you always make sure your children gets their work done -- we hope that you will also continue to partner with us in making sure your students are working on these snow make-up lessons and turning their assignments in by the due dates.

Below is the room numbers for the classrooms that will be open after school each day.  As well as the teacher that will be on call Saturday by email.
