• Information for TAMS students and families about Remote Learning

    Attendance
    For daily attendance, your advisory teacher will record attendance as usual in your advisory/first period Zoom class.  You need to make sure you are logged into the advisory teacher’s Zoom room by 8:00am.

    Students who do not have internet access should call the TAMS office between 7:30 - 8:00am (814-684-4240 x3712) to have their attendance counted for the day.

    If you are late (logging in anytime past 8:00am), you need to sign into the Google late attendance link to record your “arrival” time at school.  If you don’t go there before you go to class, you may be marked absent for the day. You will be marked tardy.

    Attendance will also be taken by teachers in every class. Students who do not come to class will be referred to the office as a “class cut.”

    Breakfast and Lunch
    On their way to dismissal on Wednesday, students will be given a “to-go” bag for Thursday’s breakfast and lunch.

    Classwork
    Students have been using CANVAS since the beginning of the year.  For remote learning, each grade has been going over how to find the Remote Learning materials, courses, and live instruction Zoom meetings.  Basic navigation instructions are below for each grade.  Videos about how to get to and navigate CANVAS are on the TAMS website (accessible through the district web page or https://www.tyrone.k12.pa.us/tams)

    Once students are in CANVAS…

    5th grade
    From your DASHBOARD, go to the COURSE called “Remote Learning Days.”

    6th grade
    Go to each class period by finding that class in your DASHBOARD. Go to the teacher’s Home page in CANVAS for the “Remote Learning” link to their classwork and Zoom room for instruction.

    7th grade
    Go to each class period by finding that class in your DASHBOARD. Go to the teacher’s Home page in CANVAS for the “Remote Learning” link to their classwork and Zoom room for instruction.

    8th grade
    From your DASHBOARD, go to the COURSE called “Remote Learning Days” for links to classwork and the teacher Zoom links.

    • Students will also be able to find their elective and rotation class information. The rotation day for grades 5,6,8 is D.  For 7th grade the rotation day is B.
    • In order to save bandwidth, teachers will have the “video” function turned off when it is not necessary to see students.  Some classes may open and close the video function, depending on the activity. 
    • Students should put their first name and last initial as their Zoom name.
    • Students who have scheduled breaks with other teachers or agencies will go to those Zoom rooms when it’s time.
    • Students may be instructed by their teachers to use the chat box and/or raise hand features in Zoom.
