Digital Learning Days due to Weather

  • GCPS will make up inclement weather days by using Digital Learning Days (DLDs) rather than using snow make-up days.  Should a decision be made to cancel school, students, parents, and staff will be notified via SchoolMessenger of the closing and that it is a Digital Learning Day.

    How does a Digital Learning Day work for students?

    • On the day that school has been canceled, teachers will post assignments on their eCLASS C&I course pages. 

    • High school assignments will be posted by 8AM. Elementary school assignments will be posted by 9AM. Middle school assignments will be posted by 10AM.

    • Students will use the My eCLASS student portal to log in to their eCLASS C&I course pages where they will access assignments, resources, and other materials. If the power is out, a student may access the teacher’s course page when power returns. If a student does not have access to a computer or device (tablet, smartphone, etc.), the student can get the assignment once school resumes. 

    • Student work will be expected to be turned in to the teacher (either digitally or in person) using a school’s process for turning in work following an absence (please refer to Osborne's late work procedures for additional information).

    During the school year, teachers will share additional information with students about Digital Learning Days, including how they will support student learning during the day. (For example, some teachers may set up a discussion board while others may use online conference tools or be available via phone). Parents and students who need a refresher course on how to access eCLASS C&I can go to the district website for helpful resources and information.
