Hola chicos y chicas,  

 

Please reply to this message “Read it” once you read all of this information.   

 

A few things....  

The most important thing is for you to not be overwhelmed, or worried these few days, I know they are painful, but I want you to know that we have tons of flexibility and I will work with you every step of the way.  So please read this and reply to this message “Read it”. 

  1.  I am taking attendance.  According  to the county we are to take attendance, reach out to you or you to me, 3 times a week minimum and complete/grade assignments, not a lot and that’s why I have extended our usual daily work,  to extend for 2 days if not more.  I will take attendance in various ways, through Remind, when I hear from you, you text or message, email, when you submit an assignment or message me through Schoology or even if you text me or call.   

  2. Grades.  All of your assignments from Schoology come to me automatically when you click “check”, “Submit”, “comprobar” or “enviar” and automatically get graded minus the writing  assignments.  I will not be able to return assignments to you yet, not like I can do with the quizzes so you can view your mistakes, individual textbook assignments work differently.  I have not found a way to return those to you.  I know you get instant feedback when you get them wrong and the 3rd attempt it helps you correct them in most cases, but you are getting feedback that way.  If you ever have questions, please call me or email me.  I can help you.  ortize@santarosa.k12.fl.us  or 619.540.6995  

Questions so far..... 

 - How does Schoology work?  I keep getting an error?!!!!!!!   Make sure you are using the Chrome Browser – Do not use Safari or Internet Explorer.  It does not like that.   If you are using an Apple product, or windows, it doesn’t matter, you can download Chrome Browser.  Both Classlink and Schoology don’t like Safari or Internet Explorer.   

  •  The system is a bit overloaded and it doesn’t always respond as fast as we would like it to respond.  Give it time and be patient, I am learning that I am not so patient lately at my end, so I am having to slow down a bit.   

  • If you get an error page, it is most likely that you are not using Chrome, simply switch browser. 

  • If error is in Chrome Browser, refresh page or trying closing Schoology, clearing your history, cookies and opening again.   

  •  When is my assignment due?  If you look at the calendar, the assignment for yesterday and today reads (4/1-4/2.... covers 2 days and in parenthesis it reads 2 days)  You have 2 days to complete assignment.    Some assignments will be longer and will have an extension on the days.  Note:  for ease and peace of mind I will add a due date at the end of each assignment. 

  • YOU DO NOT HAVE TO DO THE PAPERCOPY OF YOUR WORKBOOK AND THE ONLINE VERSION.  DO ONLY ONE. IF YOU DO BOTH AND IT HELPS YOU GREAT.  I DO  NOT HAVE A PLAN TO GET YOUR WORKBOOK UNTIL WE COME BACK TO SCHOOL, IF WE DO COME BACK, IF YOU DO THE PAPERCOPY JUST HANG ON TO IT, IT WILL NOT AFFECT YOUR GRADE.

  1. How do I submit my assignment on Microsoft Teams?  There will not be a lot of assignments on Teams, it is a place when I need to disseminate information like this and Remind does not have enough characters. 

  • Only assignment on Teams right now is reading the same letter that was here prior to this message our website, on Remind and on Teams. 

  • Why am I repeating information on 3 different places you may ask?  It is because not everyone has Remind, not everyone uses our website and not everyone has logged into Microsoft Teams.   

  • Why Teams?  We will start weekly meetings on teams, starting next week.  You will receive a video invite for our weekly meeting Q & A.  I will set up those dates and times this week.  I will set up multiple times, you will be able to join in multiple occasions.   

I love you all, please take care and stay healthy, enjoy your weekend.
