    I am committed to responding to all student and parent emails within 24 hours on weekdays. My email address: lora_vivanco@chino.k12.ca.us

    Class Access:

    We will be using Google Classroom to post and submit most assignments. Each student will be joined to a Google Classroom automatically (or will receive an access code to enter the class that will be sent to your student email.) If you have any difficulties, email me.

      • Login:  District user name (not email - only use the part of your email before the @ symbol)
        • Example: if my email is blawhorn@stu.chino.k12.ca.us.  I would ONLY enter: blawhorn
      • Password: District Password (capital letter of your first name, then the first letter of your last name lower case, followed by the last 5 numbers of your student ID)

    Google Classroom:

    Google Classroom is still our main platform for communication and assignments. 

    Assignments can be found on Google Classroom and will remain the platform for SUBMITTING Most ASSIGNMENTS. We are trying to remain a paperless classroom. 


    Aeries will be used for posting grades, but Google Classroom will be used to view classwork and feedback on grades earned.

    Curriculum: 45%

    Focused Notes: 20% (due every Friday)

    Tutorials: 30% (Twice a week)
