Alton Darby eNews

Good afternoon ADE Families!

Thank you for working with us through these first few days as we all adjust to eLearning.  Please remember that your student needs to be logging into Canvas and attempting the activities their teacher has shared with them in order to not be marked absent for the day.  Attendance is still being taken each school day during eLearning.

Should you have questions, please be sure to reach out to your teacher or the office staff.  Contact information is available on our website: Email will be the easiest form of communication during this time.  If you need to reach us via phone please call the Main Office line (614) 921-5000, and your call will be returned as soon as possible.

Next week, March 23rd-27th is Spring Break.  Students are not required to log-in to Canvas during break.  Teachers will have new lessons ready beginning Monday, March 30th.

Counselor Resources from Mrs. Wyskiver

Please visit for resources complied by our counseling staff.  Mrs. Wyskiver will also be available by email:  Her office hours are 9:00 am – 12:00 pm.

Nursing Questions?

If you need to reach someone about your child’s school medical records, immunizations, medications, or have any questions for our school health team about your child’s return to school, please contact our nurse at  She will respond during eLearning days within 24 business hours.

As we continue with this national pandemic, we want to be sure our students and parents have the resources they need to keep our students healthy. On our web page are several ways you can get help.

Technology Help

When navigating eLearning and technology issues arise, here are a few options.

Trouble with Canvas – Your first contact should be the child’s teacher.  Many times the teacher can help trouble shoot.

General iPad Troubleshooting: Students can try these steps first to see if they fix app or device behavior issues – iPad Troubleshooting Poster
