I am glad to see so many of you working on your assignments. I know these first couple of days will be learning days for many so I ask we all be patient with one another and ask questions!!! I do want to take some time and answer questions I have received this morning from various students.
No Place To Type?
Many students have emailed asking how to type in an assignment or saying that there isn't a way for them to type. This is something really easy to fix. When you are on the assignment page, click "submit assignment" on the upper right hand corner. This should open the various options for you to submit assignments (text box entry, file upload, etc...)
Get to know me assignment (discussion)
You can talk about anything in the "Get to know me" community circle. This includes pets, jobs, favorites, and even what you did over the summer or something you're looking forward to.
Canvas Chat, email, and Zoom
Just as a reminder, I am available for you during my office hours. For right now, the best way to communicate with me is through email or on the chat provided by canvas. You can also call the school and ask to speak to me. We will not be using zoom these first couple of days. This is so you have time to work on assignments at your own pace and navigate through Canvas. Once we are more comfortable doing that, we will add Zoom meeting. I will send an announcement (email) and link letting you know when we will start zooming.
I take attendance daily. In order to be counted present, you need to submit the assignments that are due on that particular day. Other ways you can be counted present are by calling the school and speaking to me (only do this if you have an important question that will be easier to solve over the phone), sending an email, joining canvas chat or zoom. Just make some sort of contact with me.
I encourage you to work on assignments daily and to follow the remote learning schedule that is posted on the homepage of the school website. This will help you remain on task, give you a pace to follow, set a routine, and allow you to effectively communicate with your teachers at the appropriate times.
Remember to ask your teachers for their office hours! Mine are located at the bottom of the previous post. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to me and I will be happy to help any way I can.
