    Week of 03/30 - 04/03

    Hello students! Welcome to remote learning. For our next steps moving forward during remote learning, my classes will meet weekly following the regular odd / even day schedule. Monday, 03/30, is an even day, so students who have me for periods two and six will "meet." Tuesday, 03/31, is an odd day, so periods one, three, and five will "meet" (please reference one of the messages I sent on Remind yesterday regarding the change in the schedule). I want to make this experience as smooth as possible; therefore, I changed "class times" accordingly.
