Horace Mann Home Learning

HM
Our goal is to provide families and students with academic resources to continue instruction.
 
As a student you are going to be interacting with your teacher via your BHUSD email, Google Hangouts/Meet and Google Classroom. Your teacher will send you exactly what their expectations are.

California Department of Education Guidelines for Distance Learning: Click here.

Communication to Parents: Please keep in mind that ideally, 3-5 teachers will communicate directly with students so as parents you may not hear from teachers much like at school. We are encouraging you to engage directly with your child and support them reaching out to their teachers with questions. We want to empower our students during this time. TK-2 teachers will communicate directly with parents to reach their students.

 

Communication

From teachers to students, 3-5 communication will be through Google Classroom, Google Hangouts/Meet & BHUSD Gmail. TK-2 will use Seesaw and Consumables (workbooks)/Parent Email.
