    Please find our weekly schedule below for Distance Learning, which will be taking place until further notice. I've included links to the sites here as well. Make sure you are adhering to the time restraints for each week (Monday-Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.) as well as the timed assessments. You must have your log in information and the lockdown browser installed for AP classroom and the class codes for Albert. All information is located here and under the tab for Distance Learning on the left. In order to open the Albert class codes, you will need a password--please check my Remind message for that password. Finally, Remind is the best method to contact me during the time out of school--my office hours will be Monday through Friday 7:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.

     

    *All assignments will open on Monday at 8 a.m. and close on Friday at 5 p.m.
