UPDATE - OCTOBER 8, 2020
I will be out of school on Friday October 9, 2020 as I must address a serious medical issue (NOT Covid-19 related). In order to provide for a seamless continuance of instruction, both my 11th and 12th Grades students will engage the assignment on SHOP SAFETY as listed on the Assignment Page. I thank you all in advance for your cooperation and look forward to seeing you all next week. In the meantime, stay safe, practice social distancing, wear your masks, and be dilligent with regard to washing your hands!
UPDATE: THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 10.2020
Today, Thursday September 10, 2020, was the first day that I was able to get online for a live class meeting. This was a result of having technology issues rectified. In that regard, ALL STUDENTS will be expected to be online ON TIME at the designated times as posted for their daily class meetings. Please be advised that attedance will be taken everyday. I would ask that all students turn on their cameras so that I have a visual as to who is online which would foster a feeling of a classroom community. Starting tomorrow Friday September 11, I will commence delivering instruction. Students should be prepared to take notes and participate in class discussions. I respectfully ask for your cooperation as we work through our online learning until we are able to resume in person classes sometime in October. In the meantime, be safe and stay healthy. I look forward to providing you all with the quality instruction Saunders Trade & Technical High School is known for. Together we can do this..!!!
September 8, 2020Greeting to all my 11th & 12th Grade students,I hope this message finds you and your families safe, healthy, and in good spirits. As I am sure you know, this school year will be a challenging one as we continue to deal with the COVID-19 epidemic. I respectfully ask for your cooperation and understanding as we move forward. I am focused on delivering instruction to the best of my ability. We will overcome any and all obstacles we might face. As you are all automotive students, I urge you to adopt the corporate motto of the Porsche Motor Car Company which is "Excellence is expected..!"When I left Saunders High School as of Thursday, September 3, I had no working internet service in my room through no fault of my own. As I have apprised the administrators of this situation and was told that the technology department would get me online as soon as possible, I beg your patience as well as your cooperation. In the meantime, please check my webpage everyday for updates as to when my internet service will commence as well as any assignments I will be posting. Thank you again and be well..!Richard J.
