Getting Ready for Remote Learning
Our school started remote learning on Monday, March 23, 2020. Teachers are available to assist students and parents Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 2:20 p.m. Some of that time will be live (see class schedules) while the rest will be by email or through Google Classrooms. During student independent work time, teachers will be planning and uploading assignments, grading, taking attendance, and responding to emails. Students are expected to follow the daily schedule to the best of their ability. They will have a whole day to complete their assignments. Attendance will be recorded daily to ensure that everyone is participating in remote learning. Due to the various information that parents must learn in order to help their children with remote learning, we have broken down the process into step by step directions.
