Dear Families,

As we transition to remote learning, please use the information provided here to help you accommodate your child’s learning:

  • My daily “office hours” are 9-1 daily.  I will be exclusively engaged with learners from 10-12 pm. 12-1 will be dedicated to assisting/corresponding with parents and guardians.
  • Please contact teachers via ClassDojo (preferred) or email with questions:
  • Weekly assignments will post on Monday morning by 9 am.
  • Students should access daily assignments online.  
  • Students should enter Google Classroom by logging in to their CPS email.
  • E-Learning Platforms we will be using consistently:  
    • Google Classroom
    • Khan Academy
    • Epic Books
    • Scholastic Scope
    • ReadnQuiz
    • BrainPop
