Dear Students and Parents,
Here are some reminders for the current year:
1. All students should have an agenda. This agenda should be filled out daily in each class and taken home daily and to all classes.
2. Use Infinite Campus: Infinite Campus is updated weekly by all core teachers and is a record of work in class. Infinite Campus can be used as an app on a smartphone or with direct log-in from the Washoe County website: www.washoeschools.net. If you do not have access to Infinite Campus, and/or need help with troubleshooting, please contact our team counselor, Ms.Harrell, located in the office or via email at email@example.com.
3. Remember, Hybrid Students will be either A track or a B track. In Class Assignments (black) should be completed in class, and Distance Learning Assignments (red) should be completed at home.
Your Team Teachers (Mr. Lee, Mr. Lane, Mr. Gardner, and Mr. Rowe)
**Make sure to do your attendance every day that you are at home Distance Learning.
