What is the difference between the online instructional packet and the one that is picked up from the campus?
I originally opted to download my packet online, but I’ve changed my mind. Can I still pick up a packet?
If I opted to download my packet, do I have to print all the pages?
No. There may be some assignments that require you to print the pages. Other assignments can be viewed on the downloaded packet and completed on a separate sheet of paper. Check with your teacher on the best way to complete the assignments.
Do we have to return the completed packet?
No. Your teacher will be contacting your child to go over the lessons, review answers, and check for understanding of information and mastery of content.
How are students being graded?
As students learn remotely, we want to be consistent and fair with our grading practices. We appreciate your patience as we sort through these complex details. Please see the Grading Guidelines page for detailed information on the updated guidelines for the remainder of the 2019-2020.
How will my child know which lessons or how much of the packet to complete?
Each packet contains instructions on which lessons to complete each day or week. If your child is confused, please contact their teacher through email or call their school.
Is it optional to receive daily contact from teachers, especially if I have multiple children?
No. We want to check in on your student’s progress and well-being each day. Please let your teacher know the best time for a phone call.
My child has items in their locker or classroom. Can I come pick up their belongings?
No. Due to Governor Abbott’s Executive Order closing all schools until April 3rd, you cannot pick up their belonging until further notice. Please call the school if you need to pick up medications.
When will students return to school?
We are evaluating our District’s remote learning status every week. As of March 31, Texas Governor Greg Abbott has closed all schools through Friday, May 1. This means the schools will remain closed, but we will continue with remote learning. Based on the Governors orders, Frenship could tentatively reopen on Monday, May 4. We will continue to regularly update families as the situation develops.
The last day of this school year will remain May 21, 2020.
Is it possible to check out a laptop or technology device from Frenship?
We don’t have WiFi to use some of the apps/online programs. What should we do?
I am locked out of Schoology. Who do I contact?
