Heavy snow can’t slow ‘virtual class’

Heavy snow fell throughout the area Thursday prompting many schools to close. Like their peers throughout northern New Jersey, students in the Pascack Valley Regional High School District were likely home as well, but thanks to an innovative program they were not missing school. In fact, some students were working on a physics problem; others were completing a variety of other assignments — all from their district-provided laptops. Students were expected to “show up” or rather log in at the usual time, around 8 a.m., to get their assignments for the day. They had the whole school day to complete them and teachers were available online to offer assistance. Teachers also were able to detect whether students were really online.
