Many students have been successful in their virtual studies. Any student that has had difficulties with virtual learning are encouraged to return to school as a physical student. Below are listed expectations for virtual students:

1. Log into your Google classroom daily, preferably during your assigned class time. Google Meets will be open for you to participate in the class discussions and teacher instruction.
IF you cannot log into your class during the scheduled time frame, you are expected to watch the recorded lesson posted by your teacher.

2. Complete all assignments, quizzes and tests during the time frame given.

3. You are not anonymous in your classes. Please treat your teacher and your classmates respectfully and courteously JUST as if you were present physically in the classroom.

4. Please feel free to email your teacher of any concerns or questions that you have; however, do not expect them to respond immediately. They are teaching during the school day. They are with their own families in the afternoon and evenings. The district administrators have instructed teachers to reply to emails within 24 hours. Please be respectful of that time frame.
