For the 2023-2024 school year, the first school closing due to inclement weather during the school year will be a ‘No Make-Up’ day, as indicated on the 2023-2024 school district calendar. In the event of a 2nd school closure due to inclement weather, Little Falls Community Schools will operate with an E-learning Day for students and staff.
What is an E-learning day?
According to MN Statute, section 120A.414, an "E-Learning Day" means a school day where this district offers complete access to online instruction provided by students' individual teachers due to inclement weather.
District assumptions for E-learning:
- The district will not use more than two (2) consecutive E-learning Days and no more than five (5) E-learning days per school year.
- If the district announces a 2-hour late start but later has to cancel the day, the district will not operate with an E-learning Day.
- If this occurs after the second snow day, a make-up day will be added to the end of the school district calendar.
- The district will identify E-learning Days through announcements via Skylert and local news outlets.
- If the postponement is determined after 6:00 A.M. the morning of, a student contact day may be added to the end of the school district calendar.
- Any canceled days after five (5) E-learning Days due to inclement weather will be added to the end of the school district calendar.
- When must teachers be available?
- When must teachers have assignments posted?
- Will attendance be taken for an E-learning Day?
- Consideration for Special Education and EL Students:
- Is there a deadline for work completed on an E-learning Day?
- When will staff/families be notified of an E-learning Day?
- What about students who don’t have access to the internet?
