ONLINE/DISTANCE LEARNING PLANS
Due to potential school closures resulting from COVID-19, starting March 30th we will begin delivering course content primarily via Google Classroom. This will model closely what we already do/have done in class in order to deliver the NYS curriculum for the course(s).
All students should have already been informed and enrolled in these classes (I began work on this a week before school closed). However, any students who may have been absent, neglected to enroll, or for any parent/guardian who is interested to "jump into" the class, please contact me in order to get the class code in order to join these online classrooms.
For students with limited access to the internet, I have created a 30-school-day curriculum which can be completed traditionally (with pen and paper using the textbook). Please notfiy me by the 30th/31st of March so that I can prepare textbooks for your pickup.
Students/family are encouraged to email me (email@example.com) or to join the Remind texting group (information to join is on this web page, to the left, 'Remind App Info') in order to obtain class codes, ask questions, or for any other concerns that they might have.
Education is an ornament in prosperity and a refuge in adversity.
