Hi everyone!

    I hope all of you have had a restful Summer and are taking precautions to stay well. As you are aware, the 2020-2021 school year will be like no other year at school with a lot of changes to help keep you safe during this time. School for both Face-to-Face and Online students will begin August 24, 2020.

    This year, ALL students (whether Face-to-Face or Online students) will always sign-in through the Microsoft Teams platform. (Instructions of how to get to Microsoft Teams is under my Instructions link on this website)

    From the Microsoft Teams platform, I will post daily assignments where I will attach a link to other platforms such as Applied Education Systems, Typing.com or iCEV and even attach documents to work on.

    For my Online Students, you will log into Microsoft Teams at the beginning of your assigned class period. 

    Go to "00 Meeting Room (LIVE INSTRUCTION) Channel" and click on "Join" when I start that days meeting.

    You must have a functioning camera and microphone for Online Classes!  From there I will take attendance and go over that days lesson and assignment with you.  I will be available for any questions about that assignment during your class period only.  You will be able to chat with me using the chat feature in Microsoft Teams. 

    Email me at: brenda.echevarria@marion.k12.fl.us,

    if any you have questions about procedures or concerns.
