Brightspace

We have had a few students away lately and wanted to be sure that students and families know how they can see what learing and work they are missing when away. The best way for students to keep up to date when they are away from school is through their Brightspace. It is important to go past the Course page and look at the Content and Assignment pages.

We recognize that when students are away ill, their main priority is to rest and feel better. We just want to communicate to families that staff are using Brightspace to support student learning.

If you have specific questions, please reach out to the individual teachers.
