A Letter from Principal Donna Simmons

At Home Learning Overview

Freeport High School is committed to supporting parents and students as we transition to At Home Learning due to COVID-19. Freeport High School faculty and staff will be available to assist stakeholders both by phone and digitally.

Edgenuity and Teams

Student learning will be grounded in two digital platforms; Edgenuity and Microsoft Teams. Both are available to students through ClassLink.

Edgenuity will serve as the core curriculum for students and includes lessons, activities, and assessments. Teachers will monitor student progress and contact students directly regarding their work.

Microsoft Teams will serves as an all-in-one resource for student-teacher interactions. Teachers are able to live chat and video conference with students to provide support with concepts covered in Edgenuity. Teacher may also post content, resources, and other media for students to support their learning.

At Home Learning Supports

Each week, staff will create an At Home Learning calendar to direct student learning and support parents at home (view or download this week's calendar below).

Teachers are available to students by phone and Microsoft Teams during their daily office hours. Teachers will be reaching out to students consistently by phone, email, and text.

Paper-based and Technology Supports

Students in need of paper-based cirriculum or in need of technology should contact our office directly. Both are available for students and parents. 

Staff have created and currated several guides and tools to assist you in navigating our digital curriculum and resources (available below). The Walton County School District has also created guides to support students (available here).

Grading

It is the goal of faculty and staff to ensure that every student at Freeport High School is prepared for their next step here and beyond. To achieve that goal and maintain accountability for our students, Freeport High School teachers will begin inputting student grades. Students who are completing paper-based curriculum will not receive grades until work is submitted at a later date. 

Teachers will post one grade per week. This will be calculated using an average of student’s completed work. Time and effort will also be considered. If your child does not receive a grade, they did not complete enough work to receive a grade for that week. If your student is a senior, they must complete work this quarter in order to graduate. Juniors must take into account their work’s impact on GPA as they begin applying to colleges.

Please reach out to us directly if you have questions or concerns.
