Tips for Online Learning

  1. Please have your child log into Google Classroom each and every day to access, complete, and submit assignments.
  2. He or she should also log into Zoom or Google Meet on time and ready to learn, able to participate in class discussion, interact with peers, and answer questions.
  3. Your student should have a dedicated learning space at home to the extent possible, dress appropriately for class, and follow online etiquette. We encourage them to have their microphones and video turned on during live lessons.
  4. And of course, all students should engage in learning and activities with academic honesty, whether online or onsite.
