Remote Learning

In the event we need to spend a period of time providing remote instruction, Evansville Day School will allow students to move forward with curriculum using virtual platforms, recorded video, and/or online synchronous learning tools that have appropriate features to ensure online security. One thing that remains consistent is that the physical and emotional well-being of our school community is our primary focus. Our learning structure supports flexibility and differentiation to support all learners. Our commitment remains strong in providing a developmentally appropriate academic experience for each child.
