AT-HOME ADULT SUPPORT
Please encourage your student to complete assignments in a quiet place. Since we are not in class, your home is the classroom. We understand this task may be difficult, however, creating a routine that is similar to the school day will help your student maintain normalcy for the academic day. Manageable chunks that resemble the school day schedule may keep students from feeling overwhelmed.
Also, please encourage your student to ask questions during school and office hours. We encourage your student to be the one to reach out to the teacher with questions. We will do our best to respond in a timely manner within 24 hours.
I will make it my priority to respond to students first, so please encourage your child to reach out to me with any questions.
