• Dear Students and Parents/Guardians,

    As we move towards a new Remote Learning setting I want to reassure you that I am here to assist you in any way I can, please feel free to contact me at any time.  Our new learning environment will need to be flexible; we have to work together to make sure that we are covering specific units and developing our skills moving forward.  The following is my expectation for class. 

    • I will be posting assignments and tasks on to Google Classroom weekly (on Monday), those assignments and tasks will need to be completed by Friday of each week.  
    • I will be available for discussions, questions, concerns, and feedback daily.  You may contact me during regular class time (attached below) using Google classroom, Google Hangouts,  email (Jharritopulos@gehrhsd.net), or the remind app. 
    • The completion of these assignments will count as your attendance and participation for the week. 

    If you have trouble with submitting responses, please email or otherwise contact me and we will work something out individually as necessary.  We will all get through this together, but please remember that communication is vital. Please make sure you check Google Classroom daily for any new updates or information as they are available.

    If you have any questions or concerns moving forward, please feel free to contact me.
