Spring Calendar & Schedule


Miss Porter’s School Distance Learning Schedule Spring 2020

Schedule Details
  • All Times Eastern Daylight Time
  • Classes will meet for 8 weeks -- from March 30 - May 22
  • Monday March 30 will be a student orientation led by administrators and advisors.
  • The week of May 25 will be available for Celebrations of Learning and end of the year meetings and festivities.  (Details TBD)
  • Each class will meet twice per week for a total of sixteen 45-minute slots for the entire class to engage in synchronous activity.
  • The expectation is that students will be available during the scheduled class time, although teachers have discretion in terms of whether to use that for synchronous learning or individual check-ins.  That said, we understand that there may be circumstances that make it difficult for a student to attend synchronous sessions, and we will be flexible with attendance in those cases in addition to recording each synchronous session so that students who are unable to attend can view the class later.
  • During “Office Hours” faculty will be available for check-ins, individual support, and advisee meetings, etc.
  • The “Office Hours” from 8:00-9:00 a.m EDT are reserved for students in time zones where that slot is most conducive.
  • Teachers will be available for at least 90 minutes during the various office hour periods each day (M, T, Th), with at least a portion of two slots per week in the morning (EDT) to accomodate students in Asia.
  • Friday afternoons will be reserved for faculty collaboration.
  • Optional activities may occur on weekends.
  • This schedule will be updated on MyPorters Calendar by the end of the day on March 27.
