Distant Learning Continues

Hi Everyone, I hope you all had a great week.  I'm hoping you have settled into our new routine and things are going as smoothly as they can.  This has been a learning curve so please remain patient.  We are all in this together.   Students received their first "Check for Understanding" assignment through Google Classroom today.  I will take a look and give them a completion grade.  They will receive feedback from me as needed.  As a reminder, parents can not log on to Google Classroom and see the assignments.  You have to log on to your child's account directly to see it.  There is just no feature to allow you to view the daily assignments.  You will receive updates on assignments to let you know if students did the ones on Fridays or not.   Another reminder is that Monday through Thursday your child will get assignments for each day that they should be generally able to do independently.  At the end of the week on Fridays, they will get a "Check for U

Remember that the most important thing to focus on is that I am here for all of you and I will do my best to help you.  Please be patient with me as this is a learning curve for us all.  I care deeply abo
