Dear Parents and Students,

In math classes, all assignments will be posted in Google Classroom on a daily basis. Instructional videos or tutorials will be posted with some lessons. Handouts were sent home on Friday that correspond to the assignments that will be posted over the next couple of weeks. Additionally, a digital copy of all packets will be posted in Google Classroom.

I will be holding Virtual Classroom Hours as follows...

Math 1: 10:00 -11:00 am & 1:00 -2:00 pm
Grade 8: 11:00 am-12:00 pm & 2:00 - 3:00 pm

Students were told on Friday that it is essential that they check their Google Classroom every weekday. All assignments will have deadlines that vary. Grades will be assigned on:

    • * paper handouts
    • * Cool Downs/CYUs submitted electronically using various formats (i.e.,
    •,, Schoolnet, etc.)
    • * Schoolnet Check-Ins assigned periodically
  • * DeltaMath assigned twice weekly

Students or parents can send me questions during school hours. Students can also ask a question on the Stream in Google Classroom. I will answer those questions as quickly as I can.

I cannot stress to you the importance of reading what I post on Google Classroom. Packets were made in a rush. They could be incomplete or have errors. It takes my time away from helping students if I have to answer the same question multiple times.

Although virtual learning is a new challenge, please try your best to be sure your child is doing these assignments with fidelity. Learning is the most important goal, not just filling up the paper. Thank you so much for your cooperation and patience as we journey into uncharted waters.
