Phase 2 for Remote Learning:

We want to thank you for all of your efforts during Phase 1 of remote learning. It has been amazing to see the innovative ideas, lessons, resources and challenges that our students have completed during this time. As you know from Dr. Borchers district-wide message, due to the recommendation of Governor Lee we would remain closed for the remainder of the school year.

We want to keep our students engaged and involved in the learning process and also offer opportunities for them to help their grade. While our buildings are closed as a result of COVID-19, we want to continue to support quality learning opportunities for student success. To do this, Oak Ridge Schools will begin this next phase of learning online on April 27. Please read the information below to get a better understanding of how Phase 2 will work:

– Final grades will be calculated from terms 1-3. You can see students final grades in Skyward under FIN. Reflected in picture above in the top right corner.

– All students will have opportunities to improve final grades with required assignments.

– Final grades for 5th-8th grade students will be calculated for terms 1-3 through the final date March 13. No grades can be lowered.

-All students may submit new assignments to improve final grade. Students may earn 3 additional points (added to the final grade) each week, during the weeks listed below:

Week #1 April 27-1

Week #2 May 4-8

Week #3 May 11-15

Student Locker Content Retrieval

We are also in the process of finalizing details for students to pick up items from lockers and collection of items from students, such as library books. Please keep in mind that we are under the Governor’s Stay at Home order through April 30th. The health and safety of our students, families and staff will always be our number one priority. Once the Stay at Home order is lifted, we will put our plan into place and facilitate the collection process for the items listed above.

Student Internet Access Availability

As we continue to offer learning opportunities and move into Phase 2, it is important that all students have access to engage in these lessons. We ask that you please reach out to Ms. Jen Laurendine at if you do not have access to the Internet at your residence or if you have concerns about access to these lessons.
