I hope you are all doing well and doing your part to slow this virus. Many of you have reached out to me wondering about the rest of the year. I do not have any answers beyond what the district has told the community. There is an online portal available for you, and as of right now, that's all there is. HOWEVER, I would STRONGLY encourage those of you who were failing the class or were not earning the grade you wanted to MAKE UP YOUR MISSING WORK. I am going to REPOST the MAJOR ASSIGNMENTS beginning TOMORROW, so please look for that. I will also be communicating directly with those of you who need to make up a lot of work. BUT I'd like to remind you that as of right now, it's all still on the website, so you don't have to wait for me.
On a personal note, this is scary and unprecedented in our lifetimes, but I KNOW WE CAN DO THIS. Stay home unless absolutely necessary. Wash your hands. Practice social distancing. I know this is hard you guys; I haven't been able to hug my parents or my grandmother (or anyone else for that matter), but you have to see the bigger picture. The more we stay home, the faster this is over. One of the most important things is to PLEASE seek out CREDIBLE information. I see a lot of misinformation being spread out there. Slow down, relax, breathe, learn how to sew, change oil, play an instrument, FaceTime, FaceTime, FaceTime, LOL. I MISS YOU AND LOVE YOU ALL SO MUCH. I never thought I'd be happy that I brought grading home, but I am. It reminds me of you, and brings great memories to my mind.
I will posting specifics to your class starting tomorrow. I will send a remind message out each time I do to alert you that there is make up work available. Reach out to me any time through Remind. I AM HERE FOR YOU! You are not being abandoned by your teachers; we are just waiting for direction from the district, which will happen after April 3.
