March 30 - April 2, 2020

This information / these requests were emailed to all students/parents in Dr. Fryer's classes at 7 am on April 6, 2020.

REQUEST 1: SHORT STUDENT SURVEY

Students, I need to know a little about how many hours you estimate you spent last week on schoolwork overall for ALL Middle Division classes, and how much time you spent on our COMPUTER CLASS assignments. Please take a few minutes to complete this 10 question survey. I know some other surveys already went out last week to parents. If you could please complete this by 10 pm on Monday, April 6th, that will help me adjust my teaching and assignments to better fit what you're experiencing and able to do at this point. The form link is:

REQUEST 2: SUBMIT MISSING ASSIGNMENTS

Students, I have updated MyCasady with all your submitted work to date. If you have a ZERO for one of our assignments, either:

  1. You need to submit that assignment as soon as possible this week.
  2. You need to contact me via email to get clarification / help with the assignment.

If you'd like to setup a virtual appointment to meet with me, please use this link to book a 15 minute appointment.

Parents: Please check MyCasady and follow up with your student if they have any missing assignments / assignments with a ZERO.

Remember my grading policy is to ASSIGN FULL CREDIT for late work, and for work that is resubmitted! Students do have to submit an assignment to receive credit, however!

REQUEST 3: GET NEEDED TECH SUPPORT

If you need technical support, please ASK FOR IT! I am here to help you, and we also have a team of Casady teachers and staff members on our "tech team" who can help you get any computer / technical problems fixed fast. This page has information for parents needing technical support. This page has information for students needing technical support.

Students remember you can check our class FAQ and submit questions there too, if you prefer not to email me directly. (You CAN email me and I want you to contact me if you are stuck / need help!)
