There have been a lot of questions regarding the assignments. Ultimately, the assignments are designed to help prepare you for the upcoming school year. Due to the coronavirus, we are in a very unique situation where advanced preparation was impossible.
In any other circumstance, if you were to miss the entire last quarter of the school year, you would be incredibly far behind at the start of the next school year. As a result, all of your teachers are designing lessons to keep that from happening. Imagine if you missed 9 weeks of a math course. You’d be completely lost if you showed up after everyone else completed the work and you didn’t. Our goal as a school is to ensure that all students feel prepared and confident in each subject as they start the school year in the fall of 2020. All of your teachers will be grading the assignments you submit in Google Classroom to give you feedback on your performance and to confirm that you are correctly progressing with your learning. However, nothing that you do during this time at home will negatively or positively affect your grade for this year. Rather, it will make sure that the grades you receive next year will not be negatively affected by a lack of preparation.
Please be the responsible and mature young adults that we know you are and take ownership of your education by working hard, communicating with your teachers, and ensuring that when you start next school year, you are fully prepared to advance to the next level of coursework.
