Week 3 Distance Learning ELAR


I hope that everyone is holding up strong. This week we will be starting week 3 of our Distance Learning. It will be a short week since we have Good Friday.

A couple of updates for this week:

I will no longer be doing ZOOM lessons due to security.  Lately there has been a lot of ZOOM bombing with people entering meeting rooms that should not be there. I can still meet with your child via ZOOM by providing them with a secure link and password or by phone when needed. In lieu of ZOOM meetings, I will be posting videos of the lessons every week in order to help students through the expectation and completion of the work.

I have many students that have not started or completed the work. Since this is a block class and we cover both reading and writing should be working for about 40-60 min per lesson. There are 2 lessons per week therefore they should be working for about 1 ½ -2 hours per week on these assignments. Again, this is covering 2 subjects both reading and writing.

Grades have been entered into Skyward. Make sure to log not Skyward to review your student’s grades for week 1 &2 of Distance Learning. If your student is showing an I that means it is incomplete and no work has been submitted. If your student shows IP for a grade, that means that they either received a packet but have not returned it or logged into google classroom and only did partial work.  

If you picked up a packet and were not able to turn it in, you can take pictures of the work and email it to me. My contact info is or you can text message me at 210- 570-9426.

I know the process is hard and there is a lot going on for all of us, but I really appreciate the support in ensuring your child’s education through these difficult times. I am here to help and support you and your student through our Distance Learning. I am available Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. -4:00 p.m.

The next drop off and pick up for assignments will be on Thursday April 9 form 8-12. You will be able to drop work off and we will be providing you with 3 weeks of work to get us through May 4 our current closure date. This is to help minimize our contact.

Parents I am here for you and your student please reach out !
