Frequently Asked Questions
This page has been created to help answer some frequently asked questions regarding school closure and remote learning.
If these do not answer your questions please feel free to contact me at Mthacker@Anacondaschools.org and 406-559-7407 Cell
Why is it important that my child participate in remote learning during a school closure?
The Anaconda School District provides your child with 180 days of instruction. We know that each of these days is extremely important in your child’s learning and growth. Please know that a lot of the work the students need to complete can be done independently. However, some of the work does require an adult to facilitate. One of the best things you can do is encourage your child to read.
When will I find out how this remote learning is going to work?
We will continue to provide work to students, but highly encourage you to do it online if at all possible. This helps make the process quicker and also stops the spread of germs.
Through a packet
From the school’s website
A packet that you can pick up from the school starting on Wednesday 8:30-12:00. If this does not work for you please let me know so we can provide an alternative.
So our plan is to have everything ready by Wednesday 8:30-12:00.
I’m getting a hard copy packet. What is the procedure for picking these up?
Parents should call the school with exactly who they are picking up for, and to state when they are coming Wednesday or Thursday so packets can be ready ahead of time. If at all possible please do them online.
What work does my child need to complete?
We provided options knowing that not every family has access to technology. If you don’t have access to technology then you can have your child complete the work in the hard copy packets.
Your child needs to complete assignments in reading, math, and writing each day and fill out the logs if required.
If you do have access to technology you can go to the Anaconda 10 website, click on the JRSH High School tab, and in the upper right hand corner there will be a COVID 19 tab. If you click this you will find resources and under this link teachers will be listed by department. Under the teachers name will be folders with assignments.
How does my child turn in their work?
We will be on a rotation every week for as long as this continues. If you do them on line they may be turned on immediately, if they are turned in as packets, they will be turned in on Wednesdays, when you pick up the new work. New assignments will be on a one week rotation.
How do I contact my child’s teacher?
Teachers are available through email during normal school hours and will be checking their email regularly. All school emails are first initial last firstname.lastname@example.org. So, teacher Bob Smith’s email would be email@example.com.
What hours will the office be open?
There will be someone in the school from 7-to noon everyday. We will still have someone answering the phone, so if you have questions or are in need of something please call 406-563-5260, Ext 1503. Please don’t come to the school without notifying the office - we are trying to follow social distancing protocols.
