    COVID-19 Review and Enrichment

    Dear Students and Parents or Guardians, 

    Your child's teachers now have their classes open on Edgenuity. Their is a link above to login and information in the link you will find in the red box on the left of the webpage called, "Parent/Student Edgenuity Resources". The teachers may continue to do most of their instruction on Schoology, Slack, or from their webpage. Your child should still login to Edgenuity for attendance and to look for work or links to other sites. This is how we will keep track of who is logging in and if the students work on any assignments in Edgenuity, they will get credit towards the class they are working on. They should work on any incomplete work from the end of Quarter 3 the week of 5/4/20 and begin Quarter 4 work on 5/11/2020.

    I hope all of you are safe and healthy in every way. We will get through this together. Rest assured, we will continue to do the best we can for all students. All we can ask in return, is that you do your best, as well. Please be patient with us and with the technology  issues you are having. 

    If your child has not been in contact with their teacher, please email them or login to Edgenuity as soon as possible. You may also email me. 

    Thank you and best wishes to all of you as we go through this pandemic. Feel free to email me with questions or concerns. 

    Sincerely, 

    Mrs. Marie Ernst
