St. Monica Remote Learning 101

Daring Greatly in Faith, Academics & Service since 1960

Everything you need (for now) to get connected.

Good afternoon, Dragons,

I am including the initial resources you will need to get connected as we begin Remote Learning. You will receive specifics from your teachers for log in's, etc. Please wait to reach out to your teachers for learning specifics until you receive the details from them via email. You will receive an email from your teacher before Monday.

United front. Need your help:

Flexibility and Patience with Online learning.

  • March 23, online classes begin. Be patient with your teachers and all of our learning curves.
  • Monday and Tuesday will be focused on getting connected.
  • Everything will be recorded so you can complete it on your own timeline if you can't tune in at scheduled times.
  • Your teacher will email you by Monday with your specific classroom requirements. Please do not reach out with remote learning questions until you receive your teacher's email.

See below for what remote learning will look like! You will receive more information about your specific classes from your teachers.

While exceptional circumstances require the closure of our campuses brings uncertainty and challenge, as Disciples of Christ with hope to bring, we see this as an opportunity to find new ways to encounter one another and accompany our students in their learning.

Prayers and blessings,

Ms. Salazar and your Dragon SMCS TEAM

Carline Today!

Here is the sign up with your times.

Please do not bring us anything to turn in as we will NOT be collecting items to alleviate the flow of germs.

In my prior email, I said we have you sign our tech agreement. We will no longer be doing this and just give you a copy. It's also attached below. Everything that goes home--textbooks and technology--is due back when we resume and must be returned in the same condition minus normal wear and tear. Thank you!

Have a question for the office?

Until further notice, please email and We will get back to you ASAP.

What about my 3rd quarter report card?

These were scheduled to go out this week and have been paused as we set up remote learning plans. You will get it via email on Friday, March 27 after we get our remote learning up and running.

What about my Confirmation or 1st communion packets?

Please do not bring these with you. Just keep them in a safe place for now and we will get back to those when we are more certain of our timelines.

What email do I use to log onto my Google Classroom?

Ms. Salazar will email you your St. Monica gmail email to log on to your google classroom by Sunday at 9PM.
