Distance Learning is a new opportunity to learn and grow together but without our traditional classroom walls. Oak Hammock K-8 teachers, staff, and administrators are committed to our Osprey Families as we log onto this new learning platform. As we navigate our way we must be flexible and patient with ourselves because together we will support one another in our school community.


Expectations for Students

Kindergarten thru 8th grade Oak Hammock Students are expected to log in to CANVAS daily to complete the required coursework. We understand a family may be sharing a computer or device.  The good news is that Distance Learning comes with flexibility such as the time of day a child completes their assignments.  There are no set hours for a child to complete their work as long as the assignments are completed weekly. Teachers will be monitoring assignments on a weekly basis and communicating with you and your child. Please refer to the Parent Resource Handbook for detailed attendance procedures assignment expectations.



Communication is key and Microsoft Teams will be the communication platform for Teachers and Students.  In addition, Teachers will be setting up specific hours when they will be available during the day to answer questions. Teachers will answer questions from students or parents to ensure proper support.They also will be available to schedule online meetings for support and phone conferences when necessary.
