Distance Learning

Distance Learning

As a result of COVID-19, The Salisbury School has adapted to distance learning just like schools everywhere. This transition proved to be seamless for us as a result of the unique relationships our teachers and students have with one another. Our students are taught from early on to work in partnership with their educators and classmates.

As a parent, I could not be more thrilled with how you are keeping our children engaged and continuing with their academics. I could not imagine going through this unprecedented time AND worrying about how my girls would pass their time. You are all amazing and I thank you from the bottom of my heart! ~ parent 
    • Distance Learning in First Grade

Distance learning at The Salisbury School has proven to be both unique and powerful. Many vehicles are used to accomplish educational goals for our students. From SeeSaw for our younger students to Google Classroom and Zoom for our older students, we are meeting our students' needs. Lessons in addition and subtraction are being taught as well as AP calculus. Essays are being written and edited, novels are being read and discussed, and art projects are being assigned and shared. Our teachers are engaged in teaching full classes, meeting with small groups, and holding individual tutorials.  
 
When distance learning becomes the only vehicle available for teaching students as it has during this pandemic, of course, everyone misses being together. At the Salisbury School, though, we are still getting together virtually for opportunities to have fun and celebrate. Teachers in all three divisions are holding virtual club meetings. Our diverse clubs include origami, directing drawing, BINGO, and kindness club to name just a few.  Mindfulness meetings are offered to those interested to help lessen stress, and virtual celebrations are happening such as our senior celebration, Honor Society induction, and decision day celebration for our seniors. Even field trips to faraway places are happening, virtually, of course!
