After consulting with my classes, they decided that they would like the Zoom links posted on the Google Classroom site, instead of being emailed. Starting tomorrow, Thursday 8/13/2020, the Zoom links will be posted c. 10 minutes before class begins on the respective Google Classroom site. I, of course will be on the Zoom call already, so as soon as you see the link, please feel free to join the call. JPS
Attendance: On the days I don't see you, please answer the attendance question on Google Classroom.
Meetings: Zoom meetings for now. Please check your school email 10 minutes or so prior to the meeting time. If you are having diffficulty logging in, let me know by replying to the Google Classroom announcement and I will send you a the Zoom invite personally.

My expectations for Distance Learning is the same as in my classroom: Show up, pay attention, do your work, and behave appropropriately. This is your 13th year in school. You have made it this far, so you know how to do these things. There are some specific things that are only appliccable because we are meeting virtually: I need to see you on camera, your microphone should be muted unless you have a question, you may be at home, but the dress code is still in effect and your language should reflect being in school. We will discuss this more on August 10th and I will endeavor to answer any questions you have then.
The District is working on getting each teacher Google Classroom links and I will send out invites on Monday. Assignments will be able to be handed in two ways: sending it to my email worked very well last semester, and when the District sets up my Google Classroom, you should be able to send it there as well.
My grades as always will be available for you to view on Aeries. As soon as the school/district populates my classes, I will have the gradebooks up. My grading as always is 40% Classwork, 40% Tests and 20% Final Exam. If by the Final Exam, you have proven to me that you have mastered the course, the Final will be optional.
I will update this as needed,
Thanks as always,
