PLEASE REMEMBER:

· The virtual plan will continue to evolve as we learn how to navigate during this unprecedented time. We appreciate your patience.

· All the activities posted and provided are optional. Students will not be held accountable for work done outside of school. No grades will be given.

· Home learning can be complicated for parents, teachers, and students. Many teachers, while determined to stay connected with their students, often will also be coping with their own children and other family members; amid their “home office.”

· Our goal is not to overwhelm families, but to provide support, guidance, and resources to help you find learning resources that are most appropriate for your family.
