Your child is expected to attend their classes through Google Classroom during these times. The teacher for each class will set up the agenda for the day and provide directions. You can expect that your child will have visual contact through Google Meet with each of their teachers Monday through Thursday. Your child’s, and your, point of contact for any issues and concerns with a class is the classroom teacher. Please work directly with the teacher. Contact information can be found on our website, through Homelink, ParentSquare, and on Google Classroom.


Friday Schedule: Friday is different. Your child will meet with their Advisory teacher from 9-9:30 through Google Meet. The rest of the day is to be used for make-up work, getting support, and possible meetings with teachers. Your child must be available during this day to meet with teachers if requested.
