  • Beginning the week of April 20th, there will be an addition to the AMI Assignments.  The new session is called The Counselor's Corner.  Each week a lesson from the school counselors will be posted as a Saturday Lesson.  The assignment will be designed to motivate and inspire students to understand and deal with the current quarantine, the mandatory home-school policy, and changes to our daily living.  We hope these lessons help students become more productive and that students may somehow discover the good and positive aspects of overcoming adversity.  We all want our children to learn that sometimes they can't change the bad things that happen...but they CAN strive to overcome and deal with bad situations in a way that teaches them to learn from the past and prepare for the future.  These lessons may be completed at any time and are not restricted to Saturday only.  We encourage parents and students to open the lessons early in the week and determine how they can best complete the assignment.

    Your student/s will receive their White Hall School District student GSuite accounts today.  This is a Google account with school district settings. The student will keep the same WHSD GSuite account from kindergarten through 12th grade.  If your child changes school districts, they will lose access to the WHSD GSuite account. The student account is not private. It is school owned.  It is for school work and nothing private. Teachers and principals may access student accounts, just like they can look in their desks and lockers.

    The WHSD GSuite account will allow your child/children to access material online from a computer, laptop,or smartphone from WHSD teachers and staff.

    Your child/children will not need a paper packet of virtual school materials if they are able to access the K-5 Virtual School either on a computer, laptop, or any smartphone.  If you do not have access to a computer, laptop, or smartphone or no access to a data plan or wifi, paper packets of Virtual School may be picked up from your child/children’s school on Mondays. 

    Students who can access the White Hall School District K-5 Virtual School will click on a link to a Google Slideshow.  When the student accesses the worksheet for the day on the slideshow, the answers to the worksheet may be written on any plain piece of paper. The paper of answers will need a clear heading:  

    Student First and Last Name

    Date on the slideshow

    Teacher (grades 3-5:  teacher that gives the grade for that subject)


    The parent may take a picture of the paper and send it through the Remind app to the teacher. (grades 3-5 to the teacher who gives a grade for that subject)
