REMOTE LEARNING PRACTICE SESSIONS
Each teacher will have a red "remote learning" folder in Schoology that contains the live class link as well as other important information about assignments. The remote learning link will also be at the VERY TOP of each class Schoology page for easy access. See the example below. Please review this with your student and look at Schoology NOW to make sure you can locate the Teams link for each class. We hope we will not have to use this, but it's a great idea to be prepared NOW before the 6th snow day would hit. As always, contact the school if you have any questions!
