Distance Learning

Moultonborough School District Distance Learning The Governor recently extended school closures in the state of New Hampshire through the 4th of May 2020.  We will continue our distance learning plans to support student learning at home during this closure. 


In of the event of an extended school cancellation or closure (such as due to COVID-19) , Moultonborough School District will use Distance Learning as a substitute for face-to-face instruction. 

Distance Learning for your child may seem to  resemble the format used for Blizzard Bags. However, the learning activities and expectations are much different.  Blizzard Bags are used to continue the education process for a short term gap in face-to-face instruction; Distance Learning is designed to fit the educational needs and goals of our students for a more extended period of time. 

Each school has designed Moultonborough Distance Learning with age appropriate access in mind.  Grading, attendance, and assessment have been adapted for Distance Learning at the varying grade levels.  For students with special needs and our English Language Learners, our special education teachers and ELL teachers will be available remotely to provide support.

Distance Learning will be a shift in how students usually participate in learning.  Here are some suggestions to help them be successful in their learning while school is closed.

  1. For Middle Level and High School students, it is important that they check into their class in Schoology every school day, starting MONDAY MARCH 23.
  2. For all students, have a regular schedule or time during the day to complete school assignments. Following the schedule in the Distance Learning Plan of your child's school would be ideal.
  3. Notify the school nurse if your child is unable to participate in learning for the day even while at home. For MA: cnelson@sau45.org For MCS: lisabelle@sau45.org
  4. Try to set aside “tech free times” during the day for your child to read, to engage in board games, or to create something.
  5. If your child is able, have your child engage in physical activity each day, ideally outside.
