We are about through week two of academics and week three of school. You and your students are doing well to navigate the virtual world of education! We ask you or another adult with the students to team with our teachers and check in on your students at least once an hour. Are they engaged, on task, ready to learn? The more we work as a team, the better our students will do!
I NEED HELP, WHO DO I CONTACT?
For Academics or class issues, we ask you to start with your homeroom or subject teacher. You may use your student’s school email or Google Classroom to correspond with a teacher. If you are not sure or need office assistance, send any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org, or call the office at 618 397-0316 / 4926.
