Let me start by saying, I hope you are staying safe and healthy during this time. We will be navigating a lot of new technology during the upcoming days and weeks. If at any time, you need assistance with Distance Learning, please don't hesitate to contact us. Below are some of the important points to notate as we launch Distance Learning:

    - If you do not have regular access to internet and/or a computer for your child to complete assignments on, please contact the school for assistance at: 352-465-6710

    - Attendance will be taken DAILY. More information will be forthcoming as to how that will look.

    - I will be posting all assignments on Google Classroom. Please look for the word assignments to your left on this screen and instructions will be given there on how to access Google Classroom.

    - I will be available to assist you and your child with assignments and questions between the hours of 9:00am-10:00am and again from 1:00pm-2:00pm.

    - Assignments for each new week will be posted on Monday and will be due NO LATER THAN the following Monday.

    - Assignments will be completed on a variety of websites, most of which are accessible through your child's portal. Examples of websites we will be using are: Google Classroom, iReady, MYON, Studies Weekly, Reflex Math, etc... (each assignment on the "ASSIGNMENTS" tab will give directions on how and where to complete the assignments.)

    - Your child will already be familiar with MOST of the platforms listed above. :)

    - Your child should already know their Portal username and password.

    - With the exception of Week #1 (April 1st-3rd will only have 1 assignment per subject), I will be posting the following assignments:

    ELA = 3 assignments per week

    MATH = 3 assignments per week

    SCIENCE = 1 assignment per week

    SOCIAL STUDIES = 1 assignment per week

    SPECIAL AREAS = 1 assignment per week (rotation between Art/Music/PE)

    We want you to know that we're here for you and your family during this time. If a need arises in your home and you need assistance or resources from our Guidance Department, please contact our Guidance Counselor Alyson Savage at alyson.savage@marion.k12.fl.us or call the school and ask to speak to administration at 352-465-6710.
