The District is required to account for daily attendance. Credit for attendance will be taken by student participation in the daily activities that occur throughout the day. It is important to note that “participation” at every grade level is going to be different. Teachers will submit their daily attendance by 3:00 p.m. If for some reason it is past 3:00 p.m., simply email the teacher and they will mark your child present.
If your child is sick or there is a family emergency, please treat it like any other sick day and call the attendance line at 610-469-5688, to report the illness. Please email Mrs. Ficca as well at email@example.com .
Students will participate in an asynchronous approach to learning. All lessons will be shared in flexible formats via Google Classroom or Seesaw. The teacher lessons may take approximately 10-20 minutes to view, but students should work beyond the teaching time on independent or guided practice. Teachers will provide feedback to students, and they will be available to meet with students for up to one hour each day during “office hours.”
K-1 focus of instruction: reading, phonics, and math
2-6 focus of instruction: reading, writing, and math
As mentioned, this will vary by grade level, by subject, and even by lesson. Teachers will share their expectations daily to maintain each student’s continuity of education.
*To sign-in to a Google Classroom, you must be logged into an OJRSD Google account.
Need help accessing your child's Google account username and password information? Send an e-mail to Mrs. Ficca at firstname.lastname@example.org .
As a reminder to students, the lessons that teachers are preparing and delivering right now are intended for instructional use. Students do not have permission to record and repost lessons nor manipulate the content. Be respectful in online communication with teachers and peers.

Owen J Roberts Campuses
All of our campuses, including Warwick, are Wi-Fi available if you are near buildings and stay in the car. You can just connect to OJR Public.
Mobile Carriers – Verizon /AT&T /T-Mobile
Suggestions are Verizon is offering mobile hotspots on certain plans for free up to15 GB. We heard for some T-Mobile customers that they are doing something but can't find it online.
Neighbors helping Neighbors
I know some neighbors are sharing the Wi-Fi passwords with each other for students to use during this at home time.
