Thanks for letting us know how you're doing!

Our staff was heartened by their outreach calls to families this past week to check in and see how you're doing after the fire evacuation. They loved having the chance to speak with you and your student from the heart about our shared experience that, while it had its challenges, also presented opportunities for our community to once again rise to the occasion and support one another in times of hardship. Thanks so much for taking the time to speak with us!

As we progress more and more into our school days, your student's attendance will begin to matter more and more. Let us support you and work with you to help your student attend class. To be marked present, your student must do both of the following:

1.Participate meaningfully in class activities (Fully complete school work, speak up in Zoom classes, ask questions to Teachers in Zoom classes and/or in Canvas, finish and submit responses to assignments and/or surveys)

2.Communicate with their teacher or another staff member for each period they attend (speak up in a Zoom class, respond to their Teacher's prompts, send a private message via Canvas or email about the task or assignment if the student is not participating live).

If your student has difficulty accessing videos, Zoom meetings, or assignments, please have them email their teacher as soon as possible to receive suggestions for how to resolve the issue, and to be sure they are marked present for that class.
