At Home Learning Information
If you have a device and access to the internet, complete your assignments on Edgenuity.
If you do not have device/internet access, please plan to pick up your Printed Packet on Monday or Wednesday from 9 am to 11 am in the Bus Circle.
Printed Packet Instructions:
Each packet will have a cover sheet with important information. When you complete the packet, write your name clearly at the top and return it when you pick up the next Printed Packet. KEEP THE READING PACKET!! YOU WILL NEED IT FOR THE NEXT SET OF ASSIGNMENTS. If you have questions about these assignments, you can email your teacher or email or text me. I can help you get the information you need.
Please highlight and annotate as you work your way through the Reading Packet. Since we won't have class discussion, you are going to n'eed to depend completely on your understanding of the reading. Slow down and really think about what you're reading. It's ok to ask a family member to read it to you or to read it with you :)
