Okey doke, folks:
We know many of you are wondering what the plan for our school closure means for your assignments and if you will need to be doing work at home. The short answer is: no, we will not be assigning any work or assessments during these two weeks off.
If you missed work from before the closure, you can use this time to complete that. You should also be certain that you have assignments given before the break ready for when we return (Scored Discussion prep, Exam study) You may, if you wish, take advantage of this time to work ahead on your chapter notes, but as far as we know at this moment, we will just pick up where we left off whenever we return to school so you are not required to work on anything new at this point.
The State and the District will continue to develop new guidance as things develop over the next weeks, so expect there to be changes and new information, and please check back here frequently. If you have assessments to make up, we will take care of that when we return to school. For APUSH, our first day back will likely be a review day, not straight into the exam that was scheduled for Monday.
As far as AP Exams, College Board has indicated that they will use maximum flexibility with states and school districts to reschedule AP exams this year based on what we end up with as our final school closure. We will ensure that you are prepared for exams, so don’t worry on that front. I am making all of the APClassroom assignments available to you in case you want to use some of your time to keep sharp on those skills. We may decide to offer further opportunities in the days ahead, so keep checking back here if you think you might be interested in those, but again, there are no new assignments or assessments during the school closure the next two weeks.
If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to email either myself or Mr. Richardson. Be smart, stay safe and healthy!
