District Wide Full Asynchronous Learning Day K-12

On Tuesday, October 27, 2020, the Honeoye Falls-Lima Central School District’s Board of Education approved a change to the District’s calendar. This change marks Monday, November 30, 2020, as the District’s first full asynchronous learning day for students K-12.  Staff will be in session. During an asynchronous learning day, otherwise known as a remote learning day, staff will be required to report to work where they will be given the opportunity to plan curriculum and collaborate with colleagues. There will also be professional development opportunities available to staff if they choose. Students will have assignments posted online for them to complete during the asynchronous day. There will be no live instructional classes on this day as students will be expected to work independently. Asynchronous learning days are designed with both the students and teachers in mind. These days provide the opportunity for teachers to catch up on their professional obligations while students complete meaningful assignments at home. Follow this link for details: Details
