NLESD Information for Families - Privacy Protection in a Virtual Learning Environment

The Newfoundland and Labrador English School District is committed to the protection of privacy of students and families and asks that you take the time to review the following information to ensure the protection of privacy of your child and family in virtual learning environments:

  1. Families must ensure that meeting requests or URLs, that are shared with your child to participate in a virtual class, are not shared with others.

  2. Families and students must not share or comment on information of other students or families that may be accessed due to your child’s presence in virtual classes.

  3. When a child is connected virtually with their class peers and teacher, families should try, where possible, to create a learning space in which only that student is present in the room/area.

  4. Students are expected to follow established norms for virtual meetings and classes. These include: no screenshots, photos, or recording of virtual meetings or classrooms.

  5. Families should discuss these protocols with their child and ensure, to the best of their ability, that they understand the expectations.


ONLINE LEARNING EXPECTATIONS OF STUDENTS


During these challenging times, please be assured that Stephenville High School, including its administration, IRTS, and Teachers are committed to providing a supportive online learning environment.


To make online learning as successful as possible:

  1. Students are expected to be present online at the beginning of each period.

  2. The daily schedule for classes are as follows:

  • Period 1 starts at 8:50 AM

  • Period 2 starts at 9:50 AM

  • Period 3 starts at 11:10 AM

  • Period 4 starts at 1 PM

  • Period 5 starts at 2 PM


  1. At the beginning of each class, students are expected to go to the google classroom for their class, based on their individual school schedule. To access the google classroom, students must go to: https://classroom.google.com. Once they are in the google classroom, students are expected to first go to the Google Meet for that class.

  2. If a student is not able to log into their school student account, they should email Mr. Blundon at jeffreyblundon@nlesd.ca, and their username and password will be reset.

  3. When online, students are expected to follow the online etiquette rules:

    1. Be on time for class

    2. Make your microphone mute unless the teacher asks a question to the student. This will insure lack of extra noise during the class setting.

    3. Use the “raise your hand” function or ask a question in the comment section of the Google Meet if you wish to contribute or ask a question.

    4. Try to keep all conversation in the comments to deal with the material being taught during class time.

    5. All students are welcome to contribute to class. The goal is to make online learning a safe and positive learning environment.

  4. Teachers will not be expecting students to sit at their computer for the entire day. Students will be expected at some times to work independently or as groups knowing that their teachers will be available to help online.


Please remember that this is not only a new learning environment for students but also teachers. There will be issues, but together the learning process will continue.
