Click on the link below for a copy of needed supplies. Keep in mind that while we are learning remotely, the students will only need some of the supplies. ( notebooks, folder, pencils, scissors, glue, crayons/markers) I have also sent you all a modified copy of supplies needed during hybrid/remote learning through Class dojo.

Daily Schedule- ** This is a tentative schedule and is likely to change as we figure out what works for us together!
***OUR HYBRID SCHEDULE WILL BEGIN MONDAY, OCTOBER 5TH. Students in Cohort A will attend school on Mondays & Tuesdays. Students in Cohort B will attend on Thursdays & Fridays. Students who are in Cohort D or are at home during their non cohort days will be live during lessons throughout the day. They should be supported by an adult so they know when to meet with us during the day as per the schedule given. Please make sure they are on time to each meeting as I cannot let students into meetings late during a lesson. Thank you for your cooperation. This is our first time teaching this way so I appreciate your support and patience!
