Hockaday students missed four days of classes last week, thanks to inclement weather. But now — with more ruckus brewing in the skies and another closure possibly on the way — the school seems to be ready for anything.
Per a press release this afternoon, Hockaday has just launched a program that allows teachers to post assignments online and instruct students via e-mail, blogs, and discussion forums in lieu of regular classes. All faculty, students, and parents will get a special “remote learning alert” as the day begins, and (when storms seem to be imminent, as they are tonight) middle and upper-school students are instructed to bring laptops, textbooks, and other materials home with them.
