Welcome to Mr. Fletcher's Home Page!
On the left sidebar, you can find the different courses that I teach as well as links to past student projects and class resources.
COVID-19 and Distance Learning Update
Due to the recent Covid-19 pandemic, all RCSS schools have been closed until further notice, and all instruction will be delivered remotely. Please read the following information carefully in regards to how students will receive instruction and complete assignments in Mr. Fletcher's class:
In class on Friday March 16th and again on Monday March 17th, I discussed with students methods and expectations for communicating with me during remote learning. I will post announcements and assignments on Teams, as well as on my website. Students were instructed to use Teams as a primary mode of communication, but using my board email address email@example.com is also acceptable. I also communicated to students that when technical issues arise, I would be flexible with them provided that students took the initiative to notify me of the problem in a timely manner. Students have been instructed to check Teams for their first assignments/announcements on Wednesday, March 18th.
“Office” Hours and Availability
I will be available each school day from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. by email as well as through Teams. However, I will also be available 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. each school day specifically for video chat/conference through the teams platform with individuals or with groups of students who need more assistance.
To deliver instruction remotely, I will continue to utilize the Teams platform which I have used all year and with which my students are well familiar. Through Teams, I will be using OneNote, Bandlab, and musictheory.net assignments to my students as appropriate for their content. Since the majority of my students do not have instruments at home on which to practice, my lessons will not rely on performance skills. In designing these lessons, I have taken into consideration that not all students have equal access to the internet and devices. While I will update a weekly list of assignments due on my website, parents and students should be aware that Teams will have the most up-to-date information on assignments, including thorough instructions and resources to help students complete assignments.

Students, if you are interesting in receiving additional help with assignments or access to computers/instruments for additional practice I will be available after school on Mondays until 4. Currently I am scheduled for afternoon bus duty, so I may be a little late some days - please contact me at least a day in advance if you would like tutoring so I know to expect you.
After School Programs - UPDATED
At the moment, I am unsure if I will be able to offer after school Programs due to my duty scheduling. I will work on getting that changed; keep an eye on this website for updates.
Parents and Students, New Syllabi for the 2019-2020 school year will be posted here in the near future.
