Per Florida DOE directive, all MCPS schools are closed March 16-April 15. All extra-curricular activities during this same time period are canceled.
Supplemental student learning resources were provided at Oakcrest along with Grab & Go Meals, as well as available at your local Walmart for pick up. These are not to be returned.
Teachers report Monday, March 30th with a "hybrid" work schedule. My office hours are Monday-Friday from 8-9am and 1-2pm. I will do my best to respond as soon as I am able to ensure great lines of communication during this time. All class-specific updates are on Class Dojo with assignments/tasks posted on Google Classroom. As not 100% of my class is connected on Class Dojo, I can also reach out in other ways to check-in. Please click this link for what you as a family should see when you log onto Class Dojo. Remember you can view, like, and/or comment on any Class Story, School Story, or Portfolio posts in your news feed. You can also message me and I will reply as soon as I am able.
Most platforms require signing in to the student's Marion County Public School Desktop or MCPS Desktop.

The task expectations during this modified week will be: 1 ELA task, 1 math task, and 1 science or social studies task in addition to 45 i-Ready minutes and 20 minutes of reading.
The handbook also states that, "Taking attendance is still a legal obligation, even in an online setting, and is a record that is frequently monitored for compliance. It is important that records are maintained and accurate. Teachers will continue to take student attendance in Skyward...Students can demonstrate attendance in a number of ways, including but not limited to the examples listed below."
• Logging into an online platform (iReady, MyOn, Google Classroom submission)
• Sending a message via Class Dojo
• Engaging in a phone or Zoom call with a teacher or other school employee
