  • Virtual Learning Days Jan. 25-29

    There will be no school for students Monday, Jan. 24, and students will participate in virtual learning from home Jan, 25-28. Please review these important points:

    1. Beginning Tuesday, Jan 25, all students will participate in virtual learning from home. This instruction will be guided by our teachers. Virtual learning will continue through Friday, Jan. 28. We ask for and appreciate your support in having your student log on, attend, and engage in their virtual learning activities we have planned for them.

    2. This tip sheet provides helpful information about logging in and accessing your child’s instructional resources: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1NjTuD0F5Ao5pw8HGdtABiuJtRxt14Fu2/view?usp=sharing

    3. Live technical support will be available to you Monday through Friday. Contact the IT Help Desk between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. at 417-523-HELP or the Launch Help Desk from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at 417-523-0417. You may also submit questions by email at support@fueledbylaunch.com. Students may also access support via the Chat option in their Canvas course.

    4. Student Expectations: Maintaining academic progress during this time is top priority. Students will be expected to log-in daily and complete all work as assigned. Failure to do so will impact student attendance and your child’s grades. Thank you for your support.

    5. Students who need a device or hotspot may also pick them up at school on Monday, Jan. 24, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. or from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.

    6. Grab and go meals will be available to pick up, but you must sign up by Sunday, Jan. 23. Meals will be available for pick-up on Monday and Thursday at select sites.
