    Please visit our Canvas Homepage Daily.  We will be submitting assignments on Canvas regularly, whether we are full-time in person, hybrid, or virtual learning.  Whether you are full-time remote, quarantined remote, remote due to transportation, or full-time in-person, all assignments will be on Canvas.  We will also be using our Google Drive every single day for warm-ups and assignments.

    If you need to stay after for Learning Hub with me, let me know what day you need me to stay after in advance so I can coordinate childcare for my own kids.  I am happy to stay, when given notice, to help you with your work and make-up time.

    Please check your morning Canvas announcements every single school day.  

    Please check your "To Do" list on Canvas every single school day for upcoming assignments.
