Breeze Hill Weekly Update

Independent Study Contracts

Recently you received a link in your email that requested you fill out a Google Form for your child regarding Independent Study. We understand that many of you were uncertain as to what this means.

Essentially, if or when your child is out on Quarantine for either Covid-19 symptoms or exposure we need to provide them with Independent Study, in order for them to receive attendance credit. The Google Form just gives us permission to give them attendance credit if and when they complete the work that is provided to them, by their classroom teacher. Of course, if your child is ever too sick to do any schoolwork, you can always let the teacher know that they won't need any, whether you have filled the form out or not.

Here is the link again, please feel free to respond if you have any further questions.
