Midterm of 2nd Quarter
We continue to progress throughout our quarter, and we are now already entering the 5th week of the 2nd Quarter.
As always, please continue to help your student set a regular schedule, and please continue to reach out to teachers, administrators, and counselors with any questions.
Have a great week!

In-Person Learners: Remote Learning Attendance: We will continue to take attendance this week for all in-person students who are currently taking their classes through teachers' Zoom meetings.
Please also note that IF your student is going to be "absent" from their Zoom remote lesson, we will need you to call them in as "absent" so that they are not marked as such.

Suggestions for Remote Learners & Families
1. Establish a Daily Schedule: Set alarms/reminders using phones and calendar reminders to ensure that students are logging on at the start of each class. Use the Schoology App or a Google Calendar App to help set these reminders.
2. Establish a Location: As best as possible, find a comfortable, consistent, and quiet location to help maintain focus throughout the day.
3. Establish Healthy Habits: Have a snack in between classes, eat breakfast, and maintain consistent sleeping routines. While it can be tempting to stay up late, remember that students will still need to be attending classes each day from 8:10 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
4. Establish Check-Ins: Without being in person, it may be easier for students to fall behind or forget assignments. Use Schoology, calendars, and even good old fashioned paper and pencil to keep track of assignments and due dates. Be sure to check every few days to ensure that students are staying up to date, and parents/caretakers should ALWAYS feel free to reach out to teachers with any questions.
