Online Digital Academy Registration

Just a reminder that today is the deadline to enroll your student in the Fredericktown K-12 Digital Academy. Click here to enroll your student. Any students that have already been registered should have received a welcome email this afternoon. Our Digital Academy is a complete online school facilitated by FLS staff for grades K-12. Students would work from home daily using a district provided chromebook. Families would be responsible for ensuring their child has internet access. This is a commitment to attend and participate. If the state or local regulations require a school closure, students participating in this option will continue as scheduled, and will continue to use the online curriculum and platform. Any student enrolling in the digital academy will still need to complete the normal start of year InfoSnap registration packet that you will be getting in the mail. If you have questions, please contact your building's principal.

Start of Year Plan

To provide our staff with additional training on health and safety guidance, Google Classroom training, and additional training on teaching and learning online, we will be adjusting the student's first day of school.

Students will now begin the school year on August 24th and August 25th remotely, watching district videos on multiple topics. Some of the student videos will include:

  • Our school nurse will be providing a video explaining health and safety protocols and best practices.
  • Our facilities maintenance coordinator will be doing a virtual tour of the buildings including locations of our new hand sanitizing stations, water bottle filling stations, and will describe our classroom and district sanitizing protocols.
  • Our transportation department will be sharing procedures for bus stop social distancing, procedures for getting on and off the bus, as well as entering and exiting the buildings.
  • Our technology coordinator will be sharing videos on internet safety and cyber bullying.
  • We will be providing an introductory video describing our Online Digital Academy.
  • We will be providing some Google Classroom tutorials.
  • Our principals will provide meet and greet videos to students on a variety of topics for the new school year.

Students will have from August 11th-25th to watch the required videos. We will be releasing more information and uploading the videos by August 10th. Students will be returning to in-person learning on Wednesday, August 26th.
