Attention all Sulphur High School Students and Guardians:
I hope this letter finds you all safe and ready to finish up the 2019 - 2020 school year. While we are all doing our part to keep our community and country safe during this trying time, it is now time to finish up the remainder of the school year in a different way. We are very fortunate to have the technology we do in order to make a distance learning plan that all students have access to for each individual class. I will outline the ways to access the resources that have been put together by the teachers for their classes in this letter. In my meetings with teachers the last few days, they have been very excited about the new possibilities of distance learning and the positive things it offers.
Starting Monday, April 6th how to access resources online:
Go to the Sulphur Public School website at www.sulphurk12.org
At the top of the home page is a gray bar. Hover over the “High School” tab and there will be a dropdown menu. Every teacher in the HS will be listed there. Click on the teacher to bring up their homepage.
On that homepage, you should see some sort of distance learning plan. Many have placed it under the “educational websites” tab, which will direct you to the online work/classes for each teacher.
Teachers that already have Google Classroom set up will be using that platform, but that will be stated on their school webpage.
Some teachers that did not use google classroom have made a google classroom and will provide the student a code to join their “class” on their school webpage.
In order for students to join a new “class” on google classroom, go to www.google.classroom.com and click the “+” sign at the top right of the page. They will then click “join class” and enter the class code provided by their teacher.
**HARD COPIES OF ALL WORK CAN BE PICKED UP BY APPOINTMENT AT THE SHS OFFICE. PLEASE CALL (580) 622-3174 IF YOU DO NOT HAVE ONLINE CAPABILITIES**
We urge all students to embrace what we have provided in order to get the most they can out of it for their education. Students do not need to worry about whether or not this work will hurt their grade; it will not. If a student went into spring break with an 80 average, their final semester grade will not be below that. This work should not be looked at as mandatory or optional, instead it should be looked at as enrichment and things necessary to move into the next school year. Teachers have been encouraged to be innovative and stretch their classroom to new limits. I personally am excited to see what is offered. This will no doubt be a learning curve for us as a staff--this is uncharted waters for us all. When all is said and done, and we get back to the daily routines we were accustomed to, this will be something that I pray strengthens us all. If you have any questions at all please call the office during the office hours below.
