Distance Learning for Science Classes 7th-11th grades

Dear Students, Parents, and Guardians

During this time of distance learning as the COVID-19 social distancing continues, it is expected that teachers will continue to provide the best possible learning opportunities for our students given the circumstances.  It is also expected that students will take responsibility to continue their 2019-2020 school year learning to the best of their abilities, also given the current circumstances.

I will be running my science classes through Schoology.  Students will be expected to login regularly and check for lessons, activities, assignments, etc.  Schoology codes are listed below for science classes and for graduation year classes.  If you are not signed up for your two classes, please do so as soon as possible.

If any students need Schoology login, school Gmail account, or other account information please contact your teachers through email, and we can get that information to you.

I am planning to hold regular office hours daily from 10:00 am – noon and 3:00-5:00 pm where I will be available by email, for video chatting, etc.  This may change depending on student needs.  I will be accessible by email, cshepherd@lyle.k12.mn.us, please be sure to spell SHEPHERD properly.  I would like to eventually do video chat/conference calls as needed moving forward so please check in on Schoology for that information.  Also, Charlie Barkins has made a Snapchat account that can be used by students to stay in contact, feel free to add charlie_barkins.

Please be patient with yourself and others as we navigate through this situation.  I am here to assist you as much as possible with your distance learning requirements.
