Academic Assistance

 

We're all in this together!

We want the learning experience at home to be engaging, relational and challenging. What a unique way to learn together! Classes will be taught both live and then recorded. Do your very best to attend each one and not fall behind.

Stay connected to your teachers! Please reach out to them with questions, concerns or feedback. 

Please be patient with grading and assessments. We are working on the best methods to evaluate students and we know we may need to make adjustments to 4th quarter grades to be fair and realistic.
