• Special Message from our District about the use of Online Platforms - Zoom & Google Classroom

    Marion County Public Schools may record online classroom sessions utilizing third-party platforms (Zoom, Google Classroom, etc.).  These recordings will only be used for educational purposes and may be shared on other learning platforms.  If you do not want your child’s image or identifying information recorded, utilize your device/platform controls to stop the camera feed from your device.

    General Information for Virtual Learning

    *All Assignments will be posted on my teacher webpage.  This will include assignments for Reading/English –Language Arts, Math, Science & Social Studies

    *For grading to happen, you will need to take a picture of the completed work and send it to me via Class Dojo.  You can upload the picture of the completed work in the messages section or in your child’s portfolio, which is part of the Dojo account.

    *You will need to go to Special Area Teacher's webpages to see their assignments – Art – Ms. Pelt, Music – Mrs. Keister & P.E. – Coach Gomillion.  These are also on the Saddlewood teacher directory

    *I am listing a completion date for all assignments, but I am willing to be as flexible as possible with these dates.  All are designed to be completed in a week, but I can extend that if needed.  Please just contact me and we can work out any issues with grading and due dates.

    *Where possible, I am uploading the pages that can be printed as a PDF or as a picture so students have a physical copy to write on.  If you do not have the ability to print, students can write out responses on paper and you can photograph the completed work that way.  I just need to understand what they have done.  Again, I am flexible about this too and we can work through issues.
