FAQ
Q: When are we returning to school?

The teachers will be checking-in with you and your child in various ways.  They can track your child's work on specific websites to check for completion and activity, they may ask your child to message them through DOJO or other ways, some will ask for you to send a picture of your child's completed work through DOJO as well.  For these reasons, please make sure you are checking in with your child's teacher and following their assignment guidelines.
