**School Closing and Online Instruction**

During the week of March 23 through 27, students will receive home instruction for social studies and science. I will provide online learning materials via Google Classroom and will post assignments daily. Students should work on assignments and submit them by the due date. I will be available via Remind app and email from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM if you have any questions. If students have any questions about an assignment, they can send me a comment right from the assignment page.

Beginning March 30th classes will be Virtual.  I will provide further information during the week.  I will also be having a trial log-in of the new class dynamic during the week as well. I will send out a Remind and on Google Classroom the date and information.
