VOLUNTEER REMOTE LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES

Keeping our students and staff safe and healthy is and always will be our number one priority. While that means we can’t gather in traditional classrooms at this time due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we can continue educational services for all students in our network remotely on a volunteer basis. Here’s what LEAD is doing:

Crew Leader Connections

Students, crew leaders began contacting students the week of March 23 and moving forward, they will be contacting students twice a week to check in on your health and school work. If you have not heard from your crew leader, please contact your school principal:

  • LEAD Academy: Nic Frank, nic.frank@leadpublicschools.org
  • LEAD Brick Church: Marcus Moye, marcus.moye@leadpublicschools.org
  • LEAD Cameron: Kate Ring, kate.ring@leadpublicschools.org
  • LEAD Neely’s Bend: Tait Danhausen, tait.danhausen@leadpublicschools.org
  • LEAD Southeast High School: Amy Kate Wilkins, amykate.wilkins@leadpublicschools.org
  • LEAD Southeast Middle School: Emma Mac, emma.mac@leadpublicschools.org

Middle School Remote Learning Plan

Goals: 1) Ensure the safety and well-being of all students in our network; 2) ensure the continuity of educational services for all students in our network.

Beginning March 30, each classroom teacher will provide daily opportunities for learning in support through Google classroom.

Each crew leader will support students by being an advocate and a cheerleader. Each crew leader is expected to be available 8-4 Monday through Thursday to answer questions. Friday is for planning. Each crew leader will contact students two times per week to check in with students and help with work.

Middle school families will have access to three options of educational resources:

  • Student option 1: Google Classroom offers customized lessons and videos for students with access.
  • Student option 2: A variety of online resources shared via teachers or linked on our website.
  • Student option 3: Hard copy packets by grade level mailed to all Middle School families. These packets are scheduled to be mailed on Monday, March 30.

High School Remote Learning Plan

Goals: 1) Ensure the safety and well-being of all students in our network; 2) ensure the continuity of educational services for all students in our network.

Each grade level or subject area teacher is creating assignments for all students using Google Classroom.

Teachers will be available from 8 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday to answer questions. Friday is for planning. Each crew teacher must reach out to students two times per week to check in with students and help with work.

As a reminder, please continue to follow the guidelines of the Metro Nashville Health Department. These include: 1) if you are showing symptoms (mild respiratory illness with: fever, cough, shortness of breath) or have any other concerns, please call your primary care physician before visiting the doctor in person; and 2) continue to be vigilant about personal hygiene and continue to practice social distancing when appropriate.

At LEAD, we will continue deep-cleaning LEAD Southeast and all of our schools. This includes a deep-cleaning of all surfaces and floors and any place where students, families and staff members gather in our schools. We will continue to act on guidance from the Metro Health Department. 

We are closely monitoring this situation and will provide additional updates should they be warranted. If you have specific health concerns, please consult your primary care physician. For school-related questions, please contact LaVoe Mulgrew, Head of Schools, at lavoe.mulgrew@leadpublicschools.org or 615-604-6550. Thank you.

We strongly encourage all of our students, families and staff members to follow these guidelines to prevent illnesses: 

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.
  • To lessen the chance of spreading viruses, avoid handshakes especially if you have a cough or sneeze. 
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. 
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue while coughing or sneezing or cough into your arm. Put used tissues in a wastebasket.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. Avoid contact with individuals who are ill.
  • Practice “social distancing” as a preventative measure.
  • Do your best to “flatten the curve.”

If you are sick: 

  • Stay home from school and away from others as much as possible when you are sick.
  • If you have symptoms such as fever, headache, cough, sore throat, runny nose, and/or difficulty in breathing, please consult a doctor for medical advice.
  • Face masks are not recommended unless you are experiencing symptoms, in which case a mask may help to limit the spread of respiratory droplets which can spread infection.
  • Remember to get your flu shot. Flu season runs from late October through early May. One of the best ways to keep yourself and those around you healthy is to get an annual flu shot. Although the flu shot won’t protect you from COVID-19, it may help your physician in diagnosing and treating you if you become ill.
