News & Announcements
Happy New Year! The DRCSS will deliver remote learning to our students from January 10th-14th. For each subject, teachers will provide learning materials for the week through Teams. These materials are to be a form of meaningful engagement that will be assessed. This material will be distributed daily or all at once. Either way, the initial learning materials will be distributed by noon on Monday. For students without access to Teams, arrangements can be made to pick up hard copy packages. All student learning packages are to be completed and submitted by the due dates Teachers have established. Should you require any further clarity, please do not hesitate to contact Mr. Casavant.
As we transition into a period of remote learning for the week of January 10-14, 2022, we remind families that the following tech supports are available to assist with the following: Learning Platform Tutorials (Class Dojo, Seesaw, Office 365/Teams), Public Tech Support (contact one of our computer technicians to assist you), Wi-fi Hotspot Access and the Laptop Loan Program.
