Dear Parents,

I hope you are doing well.  A few important things:

For School work: Please have your child sign into Google Classroom everyday to complete assignments that I will post every morning Monday-Friday.  The assignments will be posted by 9:00am and will be due by 7:30pm.  The students should turn in all work on Google classroom.  We have done this in the past, and they all know how to do it. NO work should be e-mailed to me.  
 
For Attendance:  In order for your child to get marked present for the school day, they need to type their names on Google classroom.  As soon as they sign-on our classroom, they will see where to do this.  Attendance is due every morning before 10am.
 
Thank you for your cooperation and support during these uncertain times.  Email me with any questions or concerns.  
 
Thank you,
Mrs. Kubina
