Remote Grading Video


Dear QVHS Students and Families:


Welcome back!  We’re looking forward to reconnecting with students and families. On Tuesday, March 31st, Quaker Valley will move to an asynchronous (not live, but your own pace and on your own daily schedule) remote learning platform due to Pennsylvania’s mandated school closings. The asynchronous approach will allow students to work on lessons and assignments each day at their own pace, rather than having to meet with specific teachers/classes at a designated time of day. All high school students will engage in each of their courses via Schoology; however, they will follow a unique A-Day/B-Day schedule (see revised District Calendar) with different courses occurring each day. Please know we are here to guide and support you as much as possible during this transition.  Do not hesitate to contact administrators, school counselors, teachers, and resource teachers for assistance. 

Below you will find several important pieces of information to assist with beginning remote learning.  It is especially important to try and create a schedule that works for each student so that students can prepare to manage their time and create a consistent structure to the extent possible given this unique circumstance.  We have also provided information on where to go and who to contact for help and support. 


At this time, the school closure is only through April 8, 2020, with a tentative return date scheduled for April 9, 2020.  However, we have prepared this remote learning plan to extend and be utilized for as long as necessary.  For that reason, there will be no formal grades assigned between March 31 and April 8, 2020.  This time will be used to acclimate to remote learning. That said, teachers will provide feedback and guidance on assignments that are submitted during this first period of remote learning.  Should the closure extend, we will share the grading process that will be utilized beyond April 8, 2020.

Please note teachers are not planning one full hour of instruction per course, per day. Again, we are cognizant that the move to remote learning is a major shift for students, parents, guardians, and teachers. All teachers will be available from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. each school day for “Office Hours,” regardless of the A-Day/B-Day schedule.  Students and teachers may use this time to engage with one another virtually during the school closure. Students, parents, and guardians may email teachers at any time outside of the scheduled “Office Hours”. Emails sent to teachers outside of the “Office Hours” timeframe will be responded to within 24 hours.


We sincerely appreciate your kindness, concern, and partnership during these unique times. We hope that you and your family are well, and we look forward to seeing all of you soon!  Stay healthy!

Student attendance:  QVHS students will check-in for daily attendance through an app on their iPad.  When students check in on this app, their attendance will be recorded with a date and time stamp.  Students should check in daily before 8:00 p.m.

High School students should look for the app on their iPad.  It will be directly on their iPad (as an app icon) and not inside of Schoology.  Only students without an iPad should email directly with Mrs. Patti Gilmore at gilmorep@qvsd.org to record attendance. A simple email letting her know you are present before 8:00 p.m. each day will suffice.


Beginning on Tuesday, March 31st

  • Students will click the HS Attendance button on their iPads each day to record their attendance. If a student is ill and cannot log in, a parent will need to email a valid excuse to Mrs. Patti Gilmore, gilmorep@qvsd.org.
  • Students will log in to Schoology to view A Day classes and connect with teachers (B Day classes will begin on Wednesday, April 1st).
  • Students can use our many digital Library resources to support course work via Schoology Course - QVHS Library Media Commons - Course access code: ND86N-PX822
  • Students will create a personalized daily schedule that works for them, including time for breaks, meals and snacks, exercise, and other experiences that are important to them.
  • Students should email their school counselor, Ms. Radakovich (radakovichj@qvsd.org)or Mr. Walls (wallsj@qvsd.org) for assistance with creating a schedule that works for them or getting on track with remote learning. We’re here to help and support you!
  • Students will typically have anywhere from two to four classes per day, depending on current schedules.
  • Students should plan to spend approximately 45 minutes per class each (may take more or less depending on the student). Please refer to the schedule examples below to think about the amount of time to allot each day per class when creating a personal schedule.
  • Students with Teaching Assistant positions or Work-Based Learning experiences on their schedules will not be expected to complete remote learning for those classes/experiences while the district is shutdown (expectations are waived).
  • Parkway students will soon begin remote learning through Parkway West CTC (they will be in touch). Students should begin their QVHS courses on March 31st as scheduled.
  • Students with a resource period will be contacted by their learning support teachers for additional directions on how to receive support.
  • Students who attend Project Succeed will be contacted via email by Project Succeed with directions for remote instructions.
