First Week of School

We are excited for the official start of Big Lake Online this coming week! A few updates for you before school begins on Monday: 
 
Device Pickup:
We are excited to share that our iPads for students in grades K-2 have finally arrived. iPads for K-2 and Chromebooks for 3-12 can be picked up at Big Lake High School on Monday and Tuesday from 11-1 and 4-7.
 
Instructional Materials for Grades K-5:
Students in grades K-5 will be receiving workbooks and students in grades 4-5 will receive novels. Families will receive notification when materials will be available for pickup/delivery.
 
This Monday and Tuesday: 
  • Spend some time getting to know the platform.
  • Watch introductory videos so that students know what to expect and how they will experience learning. Watching the introductory videos will also help parents/families understand the expectations and how they can support their student(s). 
  • Explore your courses.
  • Generate any questions you may have for your teacher.
  • Ensure that your learning space is prepared. 
 
Meals for Online Students:
We are working with Vision Transportation to finalize delivery routes for Big Lake Online meals. This week, meals will be available for curbside pick up at Big Lake Middle School on Wednesday. Students will receive 5 days worth of meals at that time.
 
Please help us plan! If your child will be participating in meals this week, please fill out this form. More information regarding delivery routes and ordering meals will be available next week. 
 
We look forward to starting the school year together!
