Now that we’ve made it through our first day of distance learning, we’d like to thank our students, parents and staff for making this transition as smoothly as possible, and we hope it continues to get better each day. Please let us know if there are any supplies or materials you need to be successful at home.
We wanted to share some tips and the latest updates related to event cancellations and postponements, as well as our tentative return date.
- We will continue distance learning until April 1. The governor announced that schools must stay closed through April 1. Until further notice, plan on a return to school on April 2.
- Design Expo Canceled. We have decided to eliminate our requirement that students complete a Design Expo project this year. If students still wish to work on an independent project, they should let me know and I will find an appropriate venue for exhibiting it.
- May SAT Canceled. Students, see Mrs. Lee’s email from earlier today.
Here are a few things that will help distance learning continue to be successful:
- Students should make sure to report to advisory at 7:55 each day. All teachers’ Zoom rooms are here.
- Students should check their Gmail at least once per day for important updates.
- Students should bookmark the online schedule.
- Students should take care not to be distracting in online video or text chats. It is a challenge to conduct class online. Please don’t make it more challenging than it needs to be. TRRS
- Students should make up work during free time–make sure you come back all caught up. If you’re looking for a service project to do from home, please let me know. If you are an artist or a techie, we can probably come up with something.
