Planned Asynchronous eLearning Day - April 8, 2024

The Board of Education has approved four planned eLearning days in the 2023-2024 school calendar (September 5, 2023 asynchronous, November 7, 2023 asynchronous, and February 20, 2024 synchronous, April 8, 2024 asynchronous ) These days were calendared for the specific purpose of allowing  all teachers and staff to participate in training and professional learning. 

The upcoming total solar eclipse in Indianapolis on Monday, April 8th is a fantastic opportunity for our students to experience this natural phenomenon. We have sent home certified solar eclipse glasses home with all students so that they can safely participate in this unique experience. It is important to wear these glasses through the entire event to prevent any hard to your eyes. Glasses should not be used if they are scratched or damaged.

Asynchronous learning describes educational activities and assignments that engage students in learning at their own pace, on their own time.

Student Schedules for April 8, 2024

Students in all grade levels may participate in their learning activities in their eLearning assignments at their own pace and at any time. Students in grades K-8 had their eLearning assignments (paper assignments) sent home with them on March 22nd. Students do not need to utilize their iPads to complete their assignments.

High School students eLearning assignments have been posted to Canvas.

How much time is the student expected to work during the eLearning Day?

Warren defines eLearning as “extended learning”.  Extended learning refers to activities that continue the instruction that is taking place in the classroom; it is not the introduction of new concepts.

All assignments are due no later than 5 school days after the eLearning day. For the April 8th eLearning day, all assignments are due no later than Monday, April 15th.

Students, Parents, and Caregivers can contact their child's teacher via email with any questions about the eLearning day assignments on April 8th. Teachers and

 What if students are unable to complete their assignments on eLearning Day?

Students will have five days upon return to school to turn in their assignments.  If students need additional support, their teachers will be able to provide that upon their return to school.  

How will eLearning be monitored and counted for attendance?

Because we see the use of eLearning Days as part of a student’s normal learning experience, accountability for students will rely on completion and assessment of work. Teachers will assess the student’s work and determine if the student has met the instructional goals for the day.  Attendance for eLearning days will be calculated at the conclusion of the 5 day work completion window. 

What if a student does not have access to the internet?

Teachers are aware that not all students have Internet access at home and will provide accommodations when necessary for students without home internet access. Coursework assigned on an eLearning day will not be due until five school days after we return to school. Students without Internet connection have the opportunity to complete work over the following 5 days allowing for students to make arrangements to use the public areas for access.

How can I support my student(s)during an eLearning Day?  

Parents and Caregivers can support their students in a variety of ways on eLearning days.  There are resources posted below that will aid you in your support of your student.

Canvas Parent/Caregivers Guide

Canvas is a “Learning Management System” that helps your child interact with all their online assignments.  Canvas allows parents/caregivers to be observers in their child's courses.  This allows parents to see course information, pages, assignments, and grades.  This guide provides detailed information about accessing your child’s courses as a parent.     

eLearning Parent Support Guide

While participating in eLearning days, MSD Warren Township is aware that students may still require accommodations as documented within their Individual Learning Plan (ILP), Individual Education Plan (IEP) and 504.  The linked eLearning Parent Support Guide contains a list of accommodations you may find helpful in supporting your child’s needs with the eLearning assignments if your child receives any specific exceptional learner services.   


Parents and Caregivers can login to “ParentVue” to access grades, attendance, testing scores, and other important student records.  If you need access to ParentVue you can contact your child’s school or complete this request form online.  


MSD of Warren Township uses ParentSquare for school-to-home communication, primarily with email, text, and app notifications.

Due to participation in professional development, teachers will not be available to respond to messages during the planned eLearning day.  ParentSquare is a great tool to communicate any learning needs or questions that come up on eLearning day.  As a reminder, students will receive support upon their return to school and have five days to submit their assignments.
