Coronavirus 2020:

Parents and Students,

With the new online instructional curriculum that we are doing, Mondays (starting April 13th) will be considered a "class day" which I will be sending out a group email to each class talking about what we will be doing on a particular week. Some Mondays, I will also potentially be doing Zoom instruction so be prepared for an email on how to login and get set up for that. By 8:10 every Monday morning, I will have the activities students will be doing attached on my staff page as well as Google Classroom. Tuesday-Thursday each week will be considered meeting days by appointment from 8-3 if any parent or student has question about the expectations, the activities students will be doing, etc. I'll send out a remind message everyday as well to help everyone out. I really want to emphasize two major factors as well. The first one is families need to do the best they can with keeping in contact with me each week (we're all in this together!!) to make sure students are on the right track. The second thing is making sure students are staying focused and making sure they are getting as much of the work done as possible. Students need to get at least 60% of the activities done to get the credit.
