    Google Classroom will be our central meeting/information place.


    Students: Get ready for a different type of school year, no teacher or student has had a year like this before.

    The first marking period will be home-schooled. It will take effort and disapline to succeed. Stay alert and follow instructions.

    You are in a great class; my Science class. Both of these subjects are naturally interesting and useful for life.


    For now, please understand: You MUST Attend My Class Via Google Meet, every day at the scheduled time, or you will be marked absent.

    You must attend 90% of your classes in order to pass. That is equal to about 17 absences for the year. Think ahead.   Handing in the work is NOT enough, you must attend my classes.

    Tip1: Get organized. Being organized is a lot less work than being disorganized. Get folders, write schedules, keep notes, etc.

    Tip2: Take this opportunity to strengthen yourself in as many ways as possible. Mentally, physically, socially, etc. **

    Tip3: If you feel like you might have the corona virus, do the following:

    1. Stay calm.  It is rarely life threatening to people under 50-years old.

    2. Tell an adult.

    3. Call your doctor or hospital for instructions. I don't suggest just going to them, you may get stuck waiting and infect more people. Calling first is a safe policy being used in many parts of the U.S.

    4. Stay away from other people.  Stay home.

    5. Symptoms (as per CDC): People with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported: 

      Fever or chills, Cough, Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, Fatigue, Muscle or body aches, Headache, New loss of taste or smell, Sore throat, Congestion or runny nose, Nausea or vomiting and/or  Diarrhea.

      These are just my tips. Get Professional Help.
