LCS Teacher Office Hours

Each school day, between 2 and 3 p.m., Loveland Classical Schools students at all grade levels join their teachers in video chat rooms through Google Meet.

On paper, these meetings afford an opportunity for students to ask questions about the materials they are working on at home through online learning. In practice, teacher office hours have become much more.

This is a time to interact with their teachers and to see that they are missed. It’s a chance to catch up with classmates, meet family pets, and get virtual tours of playrooms and backyards. Rooms can be raucous and wild (teachers do have a “mute” button), or they can be ordered and quiet. You never know…

What you do know is that even here, students are developing skills that will be useful for the rest of their lives.
