You Have Arrived @
Mr. Autenrieth's Website!Please E-mail Me w/ Any Questions & Comments
I'm so excited for the 2020-21 year! I look forward to using Google Meet, Google Classroom CHATS, and other interactive activities with all of my students! As always, this year will be challenging but very rewarding with all the things that we can overcome together!
SEE BELOW FOR IMPORTANT INFOMATION REGARDING SCHEDULES & MEETING UPDATES!
We are now following our 3 week rotation schedule. Currently, I will be meeting directly with Mrs. Padron, Mrs. Knigge, and Mrs. Ackerman every day. Please make sure to bring your fully charged chromebooks in every day and be ready to interact with our various projects and activities that we will be learning about during each daily lesson.
ALL 3rd/4th/5th REMOTE CLASSES WILL CONTINUE AS NORMAL!

CONSISTENCY OF INSTRUCTION IS IMPORTANT:
Students will be expected to attend every day, and to not flip between in-person instruction and synchronous instruction.
The only exception would be for in-person students who are ill or who should stay home due to quarantine.
If a child is ill and able to participate, please notify your child’s teacher that your child will be learning synchronously from home, temporarily.
SNACK TIME DURING THE DAY:
Monday, March 1st begins our five day per week in-person learning! One important change is that students will no longer eat lunch in school. Instead, we will be taking a 15 minute break in the IMC(location) which has been set up for a safe, socially distanced snack. The school district will be providing a “grab-and-go lunch” to students at the end of the day. PLEASE REMEMBER TO PROVIDE YOUR CHILD WITH A HEALTHY SNACK EACH DAY. Thank you
(For any issues w/ passwords or district chromebook problems, please fill out and our Technology Team will investigate!)
