As the weather begins to change and the temperature drops, we often have many students get sick and have to stay home from school. One request we often receive is to collect work that your child is missing. Here are 2 recommendations you can follow for trying to receive make up for your student.
1. Have your child log into Canvas to see if there are any new assignments or activities posted. This will help your child stay current with what they missed in class. Hint- their log in is the same as how they log into their Chromebook!
2. After checking Canvas, contact your child's teacher directly via email (their email addresses are often firstname.lastname@example.org.) If they haven't posted any assignments, they will be able to tell you what happened in class and make a plan for how to catch up.
Once students return from being out sick, they should expect to turn in missed work within a few days. Also, we only recommend collect work from teachers if your child is out for 2 or more days- otherwise the student can collect missed assignments when they return.
Starting in about one week, 8th grade students will be allowed to take home their Chromebooks! Don't worry 7th graders- you will be able to take them home soon too! However, you must have parent permission to do so. Parents, please sign the permisison forms, and instruct your student to return the form to his/her 1st period teacher. The form can also be signed electronically by visiting this link.
