  • Practice Remote Learning

    Parents, a letter was sent home today with your child about a practice remote learning day that will happen on Tuesday, December 5th, 2023.

    Please understand that this will be happening in school. Students must still come in the school building on that day. They will be having a practice remote learning day just in case we ever have to transition to remote learning.

    It is very important that ..
    - Your child comes to school.
    - Your child brings their device to school - FULLY CHARGED!
    - Your child completes the short task that was given by their teacher at home.

    This will ensure that everyone knows how to access their google classroom. We will also be having a workshop for grades K-2 on Thursday to help parents understand how to navigate through google classroom and TeachHub. Please do make the time to attend!
