Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, our classes will be hybrid (in-class and distance learning). Students will arrive at school in groups according to the first letter of their last name, biweekly, on alternating days. Students will be assigned chromebooks that they should bring to class to complete in-class assignments and take home on days they are not in class. On days they are not in class, they will complete distance learning assignments in LMS, a platform they can access by signing into their Google account. Assignments posted on LMS are graded and are not optional. If you have any questions or concerns, please use the field below to comment, being sure to provide your name.
