Remote Learning Information and Expectations
Below, you will find a one-stop-shop guide to the information you and your child needs to connect with their teachers and remote-learning content.
General Availability and Contact Information:
Office Hours (7:00 am - 4:00 pm)
Although I am in "Teacher Mode" during these hours, I won't necessarily be immediately available to communicate. If you would like for your child's at-home schedule to follow my at-school schedule, I recommend you have them follow the SUGGESTED SYNCHRONOUS LEARNING SCHEDULE (see link below).
Suggested Synchronous Learning Schedule (this follows my daily routine at the school)
- If your child's homeroom teacher is a Science & Social Studies Teacher, follow the "Sci/S.S. HR Schedule, " and so on and so forth . . .
- Need help with that Science or Social Studies assignment? I will have open Zoom sessions available 30 minutes of eachclass period for immediate tutorials help. If your student follows this schedule, they will be able to acquire my assistance more readily than otherwise.
Suggested Asynchronous Learning Schedule (this is recommended if the Asynchronous Schedule above is not practical for your at-home schedule)
- While this schedule specifies the amount of time each subject should require each day, you are responsible for determining when your child will begin and end each subject.
- Need help with that Science or Social Studies assignment? With this schedule, your child will need to Dojo or email me a request for a "custom" Zoom tutorial or logon to one of my routine Zoom tutorials offered each class period (recommended).

Tips For Successful Remote Learning:
A daily routine and consistent, thorough accountability by parents are key for successful remote learning:
- KNOW YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES AS THE PARENT OF A STUDENT LEARNING REMOTELY!
- Click here to access the SCUC Remote Learning Parent Guide.
- VISUALLY CHECK YOUR CHILD'S WORK FOR COMPLETION DAILY!
- Merely taking their word for it without visual confirmation often leads to incomplete and missing work, the student falling behind, and additional frsutration for the student, parent, and teacher.
- Clicking "Turn In" in Google Classroom does NOT mean the assignment was actually completed.
- ESTABLISH A DAILY ROUTINE THAT IS REALISTIC!

- BE PATIENT, GRACIOUS, AND RESPECTFUL OF YOUR CHILD!
- There's nothing easy about remote learning . . . for any of us. Being gracious, allowing for mistakes, and taking a "chill pill" creates an environment that promotes inspiration and focus and lessens the stress factor.
- BE PATIENT, GRACIOUS, AND RESPECTFUL OF YOUR CHILD'S TEACHER!
- I don't know of a single teacher that is enjoying effects of COVID on their career. We would go back to "normal school" in a heartbeat. But we can't.
- We will make mistakes. We will work hard to correct them when they are brought to our attention.
- Please be kind and patient with us. We really are doing the best we can to make this work.
