    The following email went out to parents in regard to Remote learning. 

     

    Just checking in on everyone during this unpredicted time. I have been spending my time thinking of you all and hope you are doing well!

     

    If you have not noticed, I have been posting on the Remind app, encouraging students to continue working and learning as their bright minds can not afford to lose such precious and hard earned information. If you are not a part of the remind, you can join it by texting @mnellums to the number 81010.

     

    Online Remote learning will begin on March 30th, If you have not, please follow this link to see expectations for the next 2 weeks.

    If you are failing or missing assignments please reach our to the respective teacher as cycle 5 will be closing soon.  

    As I stated, These are unprecedented times and things are moving quickly, rapidly changing. I know that for some of you, school is the last thing you want to think about right now and that is absolutely okay! For others, you may be worried about falling behind or just craving a sense of normalcy, which is also valid. I am keeping all of you in my hearts

     

    I am only one email away if you need anything school-related or just need a listening ear. Please also check the cluster blog for more information regarding other classes.
