I hope this message finds you well and ready to learn. Please read the following information very carefully.
You will see an entry under daily agendas for the week starting Monday, April 6th. If you have not done so already, please join the appropriate Google Classroom. You can find the codes on the last two slides of the April 1, 2020, PowerPoint.
I will be using the attendance form posted in your class to take attendance since attendance is still required by the District. If you are having problems joining the class, please check the code and make sure you are signed into your school email account. If you are still having problems, please send me an email, and we will work to solve the problem together.
I will continue to provide assignments along with due dates in PowerPoint as was my previous routine. However, starting Monday, April 6th, I will be posting WEEKLY assignments. All assignments will be due by the end of the school day on Friday each week. Anyone with documented accommodations are given until Sunday afternoon at 4:00 pm.
Advanced classes will be using e-textbooks (links to be provided in Google Classroom), and DIT will continue with eMarion/Moodle. In addition, if you are in an advanced class, you will need to go ahead and download Gmetrix. If you have issues, please contact their support website for help; they will help students access the site. NEW INFO HERE: You don't have to download the app; you can use it from the web at gmetrix.net for free. Also, please make sure that you can access all the Microsoft applications through your Office 365 on your student desktop.
I will have contact hours during ALPHA Time and SIT. At these times I will be available via email and phone/Zoom if necessary. If you have questions, problems, etc. at other times, please continue to feel free to send me an email if you think it pertains only to you; if you think it is info everyone in the class needs, then please use the Discussion Board in your Google Classroom.
I will be checking Google Classroom and email throughout the day and responding because I want everyone to be successful.
One final note: I have been told there will be final exams this year!!! I do not know how that will be delivered or when; just be ready!!! I will definitely let you know when I know something.
We can do this!
