Placerita Fall 2020 Online Learning Schedule
Regular Weekly Schedule
This Week at Placerita 8.16.20
Good Evening Placerita Families...
We made it through the first week last week and we look forward to our first full week starting tomorrow. Last week's Prospector was really jammed with information so we are just adding a small amount of new information this week so you will not have so much to look through.
However, we are including some of last week's information so you can review if needed.
This is the first full week on the Regular Weekly Schedule as shown above. The schedule is available in PDF format that you can print and post if you wish.
If you are having technology difficulties please call the school (661-259-1551) and let us know so we can help you get them fixed. If you still need a Chromebook please call as well so we can get you set up.
In case you missed this last week's edition, below is a summary of the most important facts about how Distance learning works.
1) Each student's Hart District Google Account is what drives their communication with school. This account is in the form of an email address that allows students to access their classes through Google Classroom.
2) Each student and parent has an Infinite Campus Account where Schedules, grades and attendance can be viewed. See the video below about how to log into Infinite Campus.
3) Each student will access 6 Google Classrooms (One for each period) to access assignments as well as Google Meet or Zoom locations for class. Some type of live instruction will be taking place every day in every period.
See the School Lunch information through the button below from the District. There is a lot of great information there.
This week is looks like it will be a hot one with highs in the triple digits everyday. If your power were to go out please be patient. We are aware that could happen and we will verify with Edison where we have outages. If your community is affected we will warrant your absence.
Take care and be safe. We look forward to seeing you online.
