COVID-19 has created the potential for schools to unexpectedly be forced to teach in a virtual setting. With that in mind, I will be using Google Classroom and Zoom as the main platforms for virtual learning, if the need arises. Students will be required to complete all assignments on time and will be held accountable if they do not. If a student has issues with technology, they must communicate the technical difficulty to the program teacher, Mrs. Thompson, Mr. Thieman or myself as soon as possible. We will overcome all potential remote learning obstacles, but not without a line of communication.
Social Distancing and Masking
Everyone involved in the educational process plays a role in preventing the transmission of COVID-19. With that in mind, students must also help minimize the spread of the virus by practicing social distancing in the classroom by sitting one at a table. Gibson Technical Center will be requiring all individuals in the building to wear a mask when social distancing is not possible as determined by the classroom teacher. Students may be exempted from this procedure by the school administrator due to a documented medical condition of the student.
