At this time we are prioritizing only those essential hard-copy materials students need and appreciate everyone's flexibility in accessing available online versions of textbooks and other materials.
Parenting Students' Social Media Use
This week, we're thinking about social media and the ways in which it can be both a source of meaningful connection for kids in a time of social distance and a source of pain for everyone when it is misused. Parents are an important partner with us in helping kids make intentional, kind, and thoughtful choices about their social media engagement.
Here are some resources to help you think about conversations you can be having with your child around this issue.
School wide Instruction- Behavior Expectations
The LMS Office at Palisades will remain closed due to air quality issues until at least Friday 9.18.20 . In the meantime, please leave us a voicemail or email us for support. We're here for you even when we're not able to be in the office in person.
Our office at Palisades is typically staffed every weekday from 9AM-4PM. If you need to arrange pickup of unclaimed student materials, answers to a question, help connecting with the right resource or any other assistance you are welcome to call us at 503-534-2343.
