MESSAGE FROM

  THE SCHOOL DIRECTOR

We write today with an enormous sense of responsibility. It had been
our fervent hope since the outset of the corona virus pandemic that
public health measures and increased availability of testing would
allow us to offer our students an incredible learning experience this
fall that, by including more remote learning, social distancing, and
other safety precautions, would enable all the students to learn on
campus.

Unfortunately, COVID-19 continues to spread at an alarming rate across the country,
with approximately 400+ new cases reported daily over just the past few days.

Below in this guide, you will find our online method of learning, and the sample schedules
for your children, should you choose to enroll in our fully online school.
We understand many people are moving, traveling or unable to attend our school, so
we’ve made our school accessible to everyone, whereever you are.

Education should be accessible to all; with our vast experience in the online learning
sphere for over 10 years, we are ready for a digital experiential learning experience.

We know that there will be many questions that arise about this fully online academic
program. We are available for all parents that need more clarity via phone or email.

All of us at Eastwood are deeply grateful for the patience that families and students
have shown as we have navigated the rapidly changing landscape of this evolving
global crisis. We sincerely believe that the educational experience that students will
receive this fall will be among the finest available in the world.

We will do all that we can to keep each class involved and connected virtually so that
they can continue to interact and share their Eastwood Experience with classmates in
a safe and productive way.

I want to thank every parent that stood by us over the last few months, and over
the years. It’s because of you, we are still fully operational. Thank you for your trust in
Eastwood with your (our) children.

Thank you for being part of the Eastwood community,

Sincerely,
Dr. Michel Khoury

                                                                                              3

GOOGLE CLASSROOM
Le but de Google classroom est d’assurer une continuité de
l’apprentissage en renforçant à distance les notions données en
classe.

Chaque niveau disposera d’une G class room commune aux élèves
et à leurs enseignants. Pour y accéder, les étudiants recevront des
invitations au début de l’année.

Le travail de classe sera réparti par disciplines pour garder une trace
des activités/devoirs.

Tous les devoirs des élèves doivent être téléchargés au format PDF
sur Class work. Le Stream est réservé uniquement aux annonces des
enseignants.

GOOGLE MEET
Google Meet est la plate-forme utilisée par EIS pour assurer
l’apprentissage en ligne en cas de fermeture de l’établissement.
Pour accéder aux cours en ligne, chaque apprenant devra se
connecter à Google Meet avec son adresse e-mail d’étudiant
Eastwood.

Le but de ces cours est de permettre aux enseignants de fournir
des instructions aux élèves et de les soutenir lors de la fermeture de
l’école. Ces sessions auront lieu par groupes ou individuellement, selon
les besoins des étudiants

GOOGLE AGENDA
Les étudiants recevront des invitations à un calendrier pour rejoindre
leurs cours en ligne.
Ces invitations seront visibles sur la page d’accueil de meet.google.
com. Pour qu’elles apparaissent automatiquement sur la page

Les évaluations sont basées sur des projets/questions ouvertes...
effectués pendant les sessions en ligne.
Les étudiants ne seront pas informés à l’avance. Ils sont priés
de travailler en toute autonomie afin de pouvoir les évaluer
correctement.

EARLY YEARS ONLINE TOOLS
GOOGLE CLASSROOM
The purpose of using the Google Classroom is to ensure continuity of
the teaching and learning by complementing the learning experiences
of the physical classroom. All grade levels in the Early Years and
Elementary departments will refer to their Google Classrooms for
required assignments, tasks, and resources shared by the teachers.

Each grade level will have one common G Classroom for all students
and teachers. Students will receive invites to the classrooms at the
beginning of the year. The classwork will be organized into disciplines
to help keep track of the assignments. For Homeroom, the section
‘Inquiry’ will host all the work related to the unit of inquiry. The sections
‘Mathematics’ and ‘Language Arts’ will host all the work related to the
disciplinary stand-alone units of inquiry respectively.
All student assignments need to be uploaded as a PDF on Classwork.
The Stream is reserved for teacher class announcements only.

GOOGLE MEET
Google Meet is the platform used by EIS in case of online learning
mandated by the closure of the school’s physical campus. Students
at EIS will be required to log into Google Meet with their Eastwood
student e-mail address in order for them to be able to access online
classes.
The purpose of these classes is to provide the students with teacher
instruction and support in case of school closure. These sessions will
take the form of group sessions, and/or individual sessions as per
students’ needs.

GOOGLE CALENDAR
Students will be sent calendar invites to join online classes. These invites
will be visible on the front page of meet.google.com. In order for these
invitations to be visible and automatically appear on the home page,
students need to be logged into their Eastwood Student account.

                                                                                    15

ASSESSMENTS +

 ATTENDANCE

ASSESSMENTS
Assessments are project-based and open-ended tasks that are
conducted during the Google Meet sessions. Students are required to
complete the tasks independently. These tasks are unannounced to
ensure authenticity in student responses.

ATTENDANCE
Students in all grade levels are required to attend online classes as
these classes are in place to ensure that their learning experience is
uninterrupted. The teaching and learning continues from one session
to the next, as they are connected and built on each other. Teachers
will be taking attendance and a lack of attendance online may
jeopardize the student’s teaching and learning and may place them
at risk for promotion to the next grade level.

HOMEWORK
For students in Early Years, there is no homework given during online
learning but rather a list of suggested weekly activities to accompany
the online teaching. These weekly activities are posted on Google
Classroom.

REINFORCEMENT ACTIVITIES MAY BE
ASSIGNED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS
FOR STUDENTS IN KG1 & KG2.

                                                                                    16

ASSESSMENT +

  HOMEWORK

ASSESSMENT
Assessments are project-based and open-ended tasks that are
conducted during the Google Meet sessions. Students are required to
complete the tasks independently. These tasks are unannounced to
ensure authenticity in student responses.

Results to assessments are posted on EMS on a regular basis. All students
and parents have access to EMS through usernames and passwords
shared by Mrs. Tania Baradhi, our registrar.

HOMEWORK
Teachers of elementary classes can provide homework depending
on student needs. However, tasks assigned should not exceed the
duration highlighted in the below ES Homework Policy.

                                 MINUTES PER DAY

WORK +

 COMMUNICATION

MISSING WORK
In case a student does not complete an assigned task,
teachers will take the following steps:

1. Email students to remind him/her of the task to be completed
2. If task remains incomplete, teachers will email students again
   and CC parents
3. If student still does not submit, teachers will mark the task
  an incomplete

IT IS OF UTMOST IMPORTANCE THAT STUDENTS COMPLETE
ALL ASSIGNED TASKS IN A TIMELY MANNER IN ORDER FOR
TEACHERS TO PROVIDE THE NECESSARY SUPPORT/FEEDBACK
AND TO DOCUMENT PROGRESS, AND IN ORDER FOR STUDENTS
TO HAVE A SMOOTHER LEARNING EXPERIENCE. CONCEPTS
WITHIN TASKS USUALLY BUILD ON EACH OTHER; THEREFORE,
MISSING TASKS DISRUPT THE LEARNING PROCESS.

COMMUNICATION AND MEETINGS
Email is the primary method of communication between school and
home. Please ensure that the administration has your preferred email
and that you check it frequently for communications from the school
and individual teachers.

Meetings can happen via the G-Meet platform in the presence of the
teacher, parent, and principal.

                                                                                    23

CLASS SIZES

 AND STUDENT GROUPS

CLASS SIZES AND STUDENT GROUPS
All elementary classes will be divided into two groups.

FOR HOMEROOM, ICT, PE, PA, VA, MINDFULNESS, AND HEALTH
AWARENESS, groups are chosen at random and do not adhere
to any type of homogeneous grouping methods. These groups are
color coded.

FOR ARABIC, Grade 1 will follow the grouping procedure above
mentioned (2 groups, randomly chosen). Grades 2 to 5 are divided
into phases streamed according to ability. These phases will be titled
Phase A, which follows the Lebanese National Curriculum, and Phase
B and, if needed, C, which follow an approach to teaching Arabic as
a foreign language.

FOR FRENCH, Grade 1 will follow the grouping procedure above
mentioned (2 groups, randomly chosen). Grades 2 to 5 are divided
into phases streamed according to ability. These groups will also be
labeled according to two phases and follow the FLE (Français langue
étrangère or French as a foreign language).

HENCE, ONLINE-CLASS SIZES WILL NOT EXCEED
15 STUDENTS PER GROUP.

                                                                                    24

CHARTE DU TRAVAIL

 A DISTANCE

GOOGLE CLASSROOM
Le but de Google classroom est d’assurer une continuité de
l’apprentissage en renforçant à distance les notions données en
classe.

Chaque niveau disposera d’une G class room commune aux élèves
et à leurs enseignants. Pour y accéder, les étudiants recevront des
invitations au début de l’année.

Le travail de classe sera réparti par disciplines pour garder une trace
des activités/devoirs.

Tous les devoirs des élèves doivent être téléchargés au format PDF
sur Class work. Le Stream est réservé uniquement aux annonces des
enseignants.

GOOGLE MEET
Google Meet est la plate-forme utilisée par EIS pour assurer
l’apprentissage en ligne en cas de fermeture de l’établissement.
Pour accéder aux cours en ligne, chaque apprenant devra se
connecter à Google Meet avec son adresse e-mail d’étudiant
Eastwood.

Le but de ces cours est de permettre aux enseignants de fournir
des instructions aux élèves et de les soutenir lors de la fermeture de
l’école. Ces sessions auront lieu par groupes ou individuellement, selon
les besoins des étudiants

GOOGLE AGENDA
Les étudiants recevront des invitations à un calendrier pour rejoindre
leurs cours en ligne.
Ces invitations seront visibles sur la page d’accueil de meet.google.
com. Pour qu’elles apparaissent automatiquement sur la page
d’accueil, les étudiants doivent être connectés à leur compte
Eastwood Student.

ÉVALUATIONS
Les évaluations sont basées sur des projets/questions ouvertes...
effectués pendant les sessions en ligne.
Les étudiants ne seront pas informés à l’avance. Ils sont priés
de travailler en toute autonomie afin de pouvoir les évaluer
correctement.

                                                                                    27

garantir la continuité de leur apprentissage.

Les élèves sont tenus de suivre toutes les sessions en ligne car ces
cours sont reliés et assurent une continuité pédagogique.
Les enseignants prendront l’appel systématiquement et tout
désistement ou manque d’assiduité pourrait entraîner une sanction
ou entraver le passage au niveau supérieur.

GOOGLE CLASSROOM
The purpose of using the Google Classroom is to ensure continuity of
the teaching and learning by complementing the learning experiences
of the physical classroom. All grade levels in the Middle and High
School departments will refer to their Google Classrooms for required
assignments, tasks, and resources shared by the teachers.

Each subject will have one G Classroom for all students and teachers.
Students will receive invites to the classrooms at the beginning of the
year. The classwork will be organized into units/chapters to help keep
track of the assignments. The Stream is reserved for teacher class
announcements only.

GOOGLE MEET
Google Meet is the platform used by EIS in case of online learning
mandated by the closure of the school’s physical campus. Students
at EIS will be required to log into Google Meet with their Eastwood
student e-mail address in order for them to be able to access online
classes.
The purpose of these classes is to provide the students with teacher
instruction and support in case of school closure. These sessions will
take the form of group sessions, and/or individual sessions as per
students’ needs.

  HOMEWORK

ASSESSMENTS
Formative and Summative Assessments are conducted during
the Google Meet sessions. Students are required to complete the
assessments independently. These assessments are posted on Google
Classroom.

All tests will be uploaded by the teachers to Google Classroom as pdf;
students answer the questions on a paper, scan their answers, and
upload their scans on Google Classroom.

In some subjects, the assessments are project-based as in Individuals
and societies, Arts, Digital Design and Physical and health education.
Levels of achievement are posted on EMS on a regular basis.
All students and parents have access to EMS through usernames and
passwords shared by Mrs. Tania Baradhi, our registrar.

MISSING TASKS
In case a student does not submit assigned tasks that are part of a
formative or summative tasks, teachers will take the following action:

1. Email student as a reminder of the task to be completed
2. If the task is still unsubmitted, the teacher will email the student again
and CC parents
3. If the student still does not submit, the teacher will grade the task
accordingly

IT IS OF UTMOST IMPORTANCE THAT STUDENTS COMPLETE ALL
ASSIGNED TASKS IN A TIMELY MANNER IN ORDER FOR TEACHERS
TO PROVIDE THE NECESSARY SUPPORT/FEEDBACK AND TO
DOCUMENT PROGRESS, AND IN ORDER FOR STUDENTS TO HAVE
A SMOOTHER LEARNING EXPERIENCE. CONCEPTS WITHIN TASKS
USUALLY BUILD ON EACH OTHER; THEREFORE, MISSING TASKS
DISRUPT THE LEARNING PROCESS.

                                                                                    40

 HOMEWORK

ATTENDANCE
Students in all grade levels are required to attend online classes as
these classes are in place to ensure that their learning experience is
uninterrupted. The teaching and learning continues from one session
to the next, as they are connected and built on each other. Teachers
will be taking attendance and a lack of attendance online may
jeopardize the student’s teaching and learning and may place them
at risk for promotion to the next grade level.

HOMEWORK
For students in middle and high school, some tasks might be assigned
to reinforce the learning.

                                                                                    41

OTHER BEHAVIORAL

  EXPECTATIONS

OTHER BEHAVIORAL EXPECTATIONS
Students are asked to sit in a learning friendly environment,
preferably on a desk with correct posture and adequate height
of chair and table. Their environment should be quiet and with
limited disruptions. We strongly recommend that games on iPad
are restricted or have time-limits in order to avoid unnecessary
distractions. If assistance is needed for restrictions, please let us know.

Students are asked to keep a bottle of water next to them to drink
when needed instead of having to go to the kitchen and miss out on
instructional time. Snacking can happen between sessions and during
break but not as the student is engaged in a live-online session.

On G-Meet, students’ microphones are expected to be muted at
all times unless asked by the teacher to unmute. If the student has
any questions, he/she is asked to mention so in the chat-box, when
granted permission by the teacher, the student can then unmute
himself/herself to pose the question.

The G-Meet chat is reserved for session-related questions, answers,
and discussions. Student are asked not to engage in irrelevant
conversation on the chat during instructional time.

                                                                                    43
