Delays, Closings, and e-Learning (2)

January 23, 2023 

Northwest Allen County Schools will implement eLearning days in the event of weather-related school closings rather than starting with planned make-up days. The current NACS calendar for Semester 2 shows three potential make-up days due to weather-related closings which include Monday, Feb. 20, Friday, March 10, and Friday, April 21.

At this point, consider the above mentioned three days school holidays. However, we reserve the right to use these original make-up days to prevent extended eLearning days. We will keep you informed as potential circumstances develop. Thank you for your understanding and flexibility.

eLearning Day Guidance


All teachers will utilize Canvas as the Learning Management System to deliver instructions and lessons, and to receive student assignments.

Lesson Logistics:

●    On an e-Learning day, teachers will have lessons posted on their Canvas page by 9 a.m. In the event of a 2-hour delay that becomes a cancellation, teachers will have lessons posted by 10 a.m.
- Carroll High School will follow a 2-hour delay schedule and all lessons will be posted by 9:30am for zero-hour courses and by 10:30am for all others. Please see information shared from Mr. Million with additional details. 

●    Office hours: Teachers will be available to answer questions from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Students can ask questions via Canvas or regular email. Teachers will communicate any special time constraints they have with their students (i.e. I will be offline between noon and 1:00 p.m. I will return to answer questions from 1 to 4 p.m.). Teachers will be flexible when working through student questions and lesson concerns.

●    Attendance and due dates: eLearning days count as an official school day, so attendance must still be taken.

Student attendance will be based on student participation including tasks and/or their submission of an assignment. Teacher instructions and directions will state what these might include.

●    Due dates:

  • K-5: Student products are due at the start of school on thethird day following an eLearning day.
  • 6-8: Student products are due at the start of school on the second day following an e-Learning day. The task presented will be used to determine attendance in each class.
  • 9-12: Student products are due at the start of school following the eLearning dayfollowingan eLearning day.Teacherinstructionswill be provided.


As mentioned above, the first step when experiencing trouble is to contact your teacher (either through Canvas or email). If you believe the problem is technology-based (no internet access or inability to access the Canvas page means your student is unable to contact the teacher as instructed above), please know that technology personnel is working in the office and is available for assistance. In most cases the following steps will solve the problem:

1.   Completely restart your device. Then log in, then proceed to Canvas. Other troubleshooting tips are posted

2.   If this does not work, contact the Tech Department directly at 260-338-5320 or access Virtual Technology Support by joining this link: **Please note that Virtual Technology Support is not available on days when NACS is not utilizing eLearning days.
3.  If allelsefails, pleaseknow that teacherswillwork with your studentandassist as neededwhen schoolresumes.
