Q – Where can I pick up my learning packet?
A – Packets for PK – 8th grade can be picked up at Richter Elementary (via the bus loop) on Mondays from 9:30 am – 12:30 pm. Packets for DHS students can be picked up at DHS at the cafeteria doors on Mondays from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm.
Q – My child needs a printed packet but I will be at work during the pickup times. Can I have a friend or family member pick the packet up for me?
A – Yes!
Q – If I can’t make it during the dedicated pick-up time and no one can go for me, what other options do I have?
A – Packets will be placed in self-serve bins at 12:30 pm on Mondays and placed at the front door at Richter (for PK-8th grades) and at the cafeteria door at DHS (for grades 9-12). Parents many drop by at their convenience to get the packet their child needs. Self-serve bins will be taken up on Friday afternoons to prepare them for the new packets for the following week. Bins will not be available on the weekends.
Q – Do I need to pick up a packet if we have the ability to access the digital content and assignments?
A – No; printed packets are only for those families who do not have a device to access digital content
Q – I have a device (laptop, Chromebook, iPad, tablet, etc.), but we don’t have Internet at my house. Where can I get Internet access?
A – Anyone is welcome to use our free, Internet connection from their vehicle outside of Richter Elementary School. Wi-fi is available in both parking lots. We ask that you stay in your car to practice social distancing. Additionally, the City of Dayton is providing free wi-fi access in the Community Center parking lot and at The Crossroads. The password for the city’s wi-fi is GoBroncos!
Q- I am having trouble accessing my child’s assignments. Where can I go for help?
A – On the Remote Learning/Parent Resources page, there is a Tech Help button. Submit a form and someone will contact you. If your question would be better suited to an email, you can click the Email link and submit your question with that method.
Q – How can we complete our online assignments if I only have one device but I have several children?
A – The best way to do this is by creating Learning or Activity Stations. Have students rotate through the stations throughout the day. Station time would vary, depending on the age of the students. Please click here to see an example of station rotations for 1 device and 5 students.
