Wellness Wednesdays and Advisory

Tomorrow is our first Wellness Wednesday (2/24/21). Please read this so that you understand what is happening. Thank you!

Purpose of Advisory

The purpose of the Advisory period (9:00-9:25 a.m.) is to provide you with an opportunity to check in with your first period teacher and to complete the Advisory lesson. We are required to take roll once on this day because it is a school day.

Expectations for Advisory

  • Log onto your first period teacher’s Schoology/Teams Link at 9 a.m.
  • Your teacher will have a lesson for you with directions on http://bit.ly/jrtae
  • If you do not complete the exit ticket for attendance, absent phone calls will go out to your parents/guardians.

IMPORTANT: If you have a first period study hall or you weren’t scheduled with a first period, you will now see a class on your schedule in PowerSchool called “Advisory.” On Schoology it is listed under “My Courses” as “Study Hall.”

Schedule and Expectations for Wellness Wednesday (9:00-2:55 p.m.)

  1. At 9 a.m., log onto your first period teacher’s Schoology/Teams link for the Advisory lesson and attendance for the day.
  2. Advisory will last from 9:00-9:25 a.m.
  3. After 9:25 a.m., you can work asynchronously on your own.
  4. From 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., your teachers will have office hours.
  • Teachers may reach out to you to schedule an appointment.
  • You can contact your teacher during office hours by using their office hours link. Use http://bit.ly/jrtae. Click on “home” to find their name and link.
  • You can also pop in using that link, but they may be with another student(s).

_  5.       These are other ways you can use the time:

  • You can complete previously assigned homework.
  • You can make-up excused missed assessments/assignments.
  • You can complete other work provided by your teachers.
  • You may also have to take standardized testing (e.g., SOLs, ACCESS), as applicable.

When in doubt, reach out (to your teachers)!

Thank you!
