• Hello Families!

    Welcome to VSH Middle School 3rd quarter. We will be using Microsoft Teams and Fuel Education as our primary curricular platforms. Please make sure that you can access both before our first class period on Monday, February 1, 2021. Guidelines to accessing are attached as .pdf documents.

    Each week we will hold live sessions your child will attend. All students will attend three sessions a week on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Open sessions are also available for students to receive assistance.

     

    • Attendance:
      • Attendance will be taken once a week based on live class attendance and once a week from completed course content.
    • Expectations:
      • Work will be completed by the end of each day. If work is not turned in, student will join in the next open session for an opportunity to complete work. Open sessions are a time to meet with the teacher and/or complete work.
      • Communicate needs with teacher in a timely manner.
    • Online Etiquette:
      • Login on-time during assigned session(s) with microphone muted and camera turned off.
      • Appropriate, focused questions in chat and verbally.
      • Appropriate dress in case we are able to turn on cameras.

     

    Students should come to class having read the lessons assigned for the day and ready to work on any graded assignments that have been due prior to the class period. Live sessions and office hours will be held through Teams. I will add your student to their quarter 3 team, so there is no join code. Please refer to the attached document for directions on how to access the Teams platform.

     

    Please contact me at mcvey.amber@westada.org with any questions or concerns throughout the quarter.
