Instructions for Completion

Students shall select activities from the list below for each content area to complete during the week. Documentation of completed activities will be documented on the attached completion survey at the bottom of the page. Students will upload samples of activities in the survey to document completion. This document is mobile friendly. It works well on a phone or tablet. On a phone or tablet, upload a picture of your work or computer screen. If you are using a computer, attach a file or picture as you would to an email.


Activities can be completed in any format: notebook paper, computer, tablet, etc. If students are unable to complete the electronic survey, work samples may be dropped off at the high school office.


Be sure to read the instructions for each subject area. Each subject has different requirements for completion. You are only required to complete assignments in the subject areas you have classes. For example, some seniors do not have a math course this year, so they will not be required to complete the math section. If you have any questions, please call the high school office at 870-886-2401 or email your teacher.
