Online School Supplies

For students to have optimal success in learning online and for ease of connection, we suggest the following:

  • Have a quiet space for the student to learn each day
  • The computer must be robust enough to handle the work that the child needs to accomplish. Most computers can handle the educational load; please steer away from using older iPads or tablets.
  • Depending on the option course your child has signed up for, you will be required to purchase any or all of the materials for the task. For example, if your child is taking Art they will need to purchase paper and utensils to accomplish the task.
  • Earphones: it is suggested that students use their phones if there is ambient noise around them. This will also assist with her ability to focus.
  • Camera, most computers already have a camera included
    • Cameras are required for most tests. Students will be asked to take a picture of their handwritten work.
  • Anything that would aid your child regarding comfort while sitting, a table for work, etc.
