Welcome to Week Three!

Hello Brahma Parents & Guardians,


As we enter our third week of Distance Learning our ability to be flexible and adjust continues to increase and challenge our instruction for all students. Last week we experienced spam email to our student email accounts, and the Aeries Phone Application was not working. Today, we began school with the news that Zoom was unavailable for some teachers! Our teachers had to quickly adjust and send new links to students via their Google Classroom. Thankfully, our District secured multiple ways to connect online and our staff created new online platforms using Google Meet to connect with students. In addition, I am pleased to report that before the end of the day, Zoom was fully restored. Special thanks to all of our teachers and IT Department who collaboratively resolved our technological issues.


We appreciate your patience and I will continue to communicate regularly and often to keep you up-to-date on Distance Learning.


Best Regards,


Reuben Jones

Principal
