PREPARED: Civics and Government teacher Mr. William Reusch taught his Government and Economics class remotely during last Monday’s preparedness drill. All classes went online today until further notice.

With classes being held online this entire week due to the coronavirus outbreak, teachers, members of Ed Support, and College Counseling took to Schoology to announce what to expect.

Here is your guide to the first day of official online learning at Shalhevet. All links can be found on Schoology or in your email. This list will be continuously updated.

Davening this entire week is not optional, but required to do by yourself, and will be from 8 a.m. to 8:30 a.m.

When it’s over, there will be an optional “Biur Tefila” — explanation of tefila — held on either Zoom of Google Hangouts for 10 minutes. Today, the session will be led by Judaic Studies teacher Rabbi Derek Gormin. Link on Schoology.

“Can’t wait to connect!” Rabbi Gormin wrote on Schoology Sunday evening. “The ‘Biur tefilah’ will be for the usuals at our ‘Daily Chassidic Connection’ and all not-yet usuals alike! I am looking forward to connecting (virtually) tomorrow morning!”



Ashley Evins, Director of Education Support:

To schedule an Ed. Support meeting with Dr. Evins “to work on your schedule, plan out your week, or just check in,” Dr. Evins wrote, use the link she posted on Schoology.

Meetings come in 30-minute increments.


Valencia Wilson, Education Support Specialist:

If you are in need of help with your math class or homework, you can schedule a 30-minute meeting with Ms. Wilson using the link she posted on Schoology.



Mr. Eli Shavalian, Associate Director of College Counseling and Academic Guidance and Ms. Aviva Walls, Dean of Academic Affairs:

“While we can’t be there in person to give you a high five or hug,” Eli wrote on Schoology and sent in an email signed by both him and Aviva, “we want you to know that we’ve been working hard to create resources to support you.”

They said those resources include virtual raffle tickets, Zoom celebrations, drop-in appointments, and helpful links. PDF flyer of all resources attached on Schoology and email.
