    Welcome back to My Classroom,

    I will be in H129 from 3/23/2021 to 3/26/2021. I will be in H104 from 4/06/2021.

    I am available before school every day. I am available online at any time. My email is john_swanberg@chino.k12.ca.us. I tend to answer as soon as I get the email, but will answer within 24 hrs at the latest.

    My calendar is now up to date to the end of the year. Here is the url: https://www.chino.k12.ca.us/Page/9354#calendar17543/20210416/month. If you want to know what you are doing on any day, check the calendar.

    My expectations on your off days is to work on whatever assignment you have been tasked with. If it needs to be uploaded, upload it on time. If there is a question to answer for attendance purpose, answer it. As always your assignments can be found on my webpage. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to email me.

    I will continue to use my Google classroom, webpage and zoom for instruction. No change on that. Grading will remain the same as before. Grading criteria remains the same as before. Work will still be submitted on Google classroom.

    My classroom expectations are the same as before: show up on time, pay attention, do your work and hand it in on time. This is whether you are in my classroom or at home. In my classroom we will social distance; You will have your own textbook/electronic device for notes, essays and tests; You will clean your work area with school supplied cleaning equipment before you sit down; You will wash your hands with school supplied equipment every time you think you should, including but not limited to entering and exiting the classroom, after visiting the restroom, before and after lunch; You will wear your mask at all possible time.


    I am looking forwards to seeing you all, please stay safe,


    John Swanberg

    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,
