    Information About Remote Learning Days

    Remote learning days will focus on special area classes and skills that students are learning in class.  Your student will participate in scheduled specials, such as art and music. You will receive information about joining the special area Meets from your child's special area teachers. 

    Your child will also participate in a class Google Meet with me at 2:15 on remote learning days. Attendance will be taken during the Meet. You will find the Meet link in our Google Classroom 5 minutes before the Meet begins.  When your child is in school for in person learning, he or she will receive school work to work on at home during the remote learning days. As we move forward, I will post additional activities in our Google Classroom.
