Google Classroom Information

Due to this announcement for the additional school closure, administration has been actively constructing a plan to provide remote educational opportunities for all students.  Google Classroom is the selected platform to deliver instructional materials to our students.  You will find a copy of the letter in your iPad bag during pickup for grades K-12.  The letter for grades 6-12 will be on the back of the 3rd nine week report cards along with a copy of your username and password for Gmail / Google classroom (same for both)
