SVA Remote Homeroom

We are extremely concerned about your mental and emotional health. This is a time of great uncertainty and we realize that remote learning is not the ideal way to “go to school”. We are aware of the strain that can be put on you and want you to know that you are supported in every aspect of your development, especially during this time. Therefore, counselors will be making appointments with you to check in with you and offer their support in this area. You can also email your counselor to request a meeting at any time. For a scheduled remote meeting, you should be able to communicate in a private setting with your counselor so that your confidentiality can be preserved. Counselors will do their best not to schedule appointments with students during class time.


During this time of remote instruction, there will be many opportunities for “live” instruction that you will be required to attend with the camera turned on, starting with homeroom. It is our expectation that these “live” classes adhere to the same scholastic and behavioral expectations that would be expected during in-person instruction. Therefore, we have compiled some mandatory guidelines that will help to ensure this.

  • Although students will not be required to wear their uniforms, we expect you to be appropriately dressed for all live class sessions. Any clothing worn must meet the standards of our school’s Dress Down Day Policy. 

  • You may not attend “live” classes while in or on your bed. You should be at a desk or table and chair that is your designated work space. 

  • The space visible behind and around you, while attending a “live” class, should not be overly adorned or distracting.

  • There should be adequate lighting so that you can be seen and are able to participate in a meaningful way.

  • You must be visible in the frame; therefore, the camera must be pointed at you and not at a blank wall or other area of the room.

  • You may not engage in any other activity while attending “live” classes, i.e. watching tv, eating, drinking,  looking at your phone or working on assignments for other classes.
