    Posted by Christine Betterman on 4/3/2020

    Hello, Sophomores, Juniors, & Seniors!

    Welcome to Week 1 of our distance learning. This week the main focus will be to ensure that all of you are able to access Microsoft Teams and complete our first few assignments. 

    Every week your new assignments will be posted by 8 am on Monday morning and due by 11:59 pm the following Sunday. I will post a recommended schedule for assignments each week but understand that you might not have the flexibility, which is why all assignments are due by Sunday. 

    If you need an extension, please email me 24 hours before the given due date with a valid reason. 

    The instructions for how to access our Microsoft Teams page are listed to the right. Email me with any questions you may have.
