Lessons always start at the regular time, provided to you by TTA in the first lesson by joining email. We ask that students join 5 to 10 minutes early, so that TTA teachers can help students set up before class begins.
Being late to class may negatively affect your child's experience, and the experience of others.
Students should come to class with their devices charger on-hand, classroom programs/tools opened, and hydration + bathroom needs met.
Students will be permitted to step away from class as needed, but interruptions may negatively impact your child’s experience, and the experience of others.
Students should come to class dressed in comfortable tops (shirts or sweaters) and bottoms (shorts, long pants, skirts).

1. Teachers will remind students of the conduct expectations. We all make mistakes, and many of our students are learning to learn online. Teachers should always begin by working with students, to support conduct expectations.
2. Students who have difficulty remembering or following conduct expectations may enter a break-out room with their teacher. A breakout room is a private 1-1 call, set up temporarily from the main Zoom session. In this call, the Teacher can speak directly with the student to better understand what challenges they may be facing, and to further explain the conduct expectations.
3.Students who have difficulty remembering or following conduct expectations, following a 1-1 discussion, may require the support of the parents. If we notice your child is struggling with class conduct, your teacher may contact you to share their observations, and collaborate on a solution.
