Welcome back everybody!!! Excited to get a new school year started. At the start of this year, we will be meeting virtual. You will be required to zoom twice a week to be counted present for attendance. I will be available to zoom every morning from 10 am to 11 am and then again from 2 pm to 3 pm. During this time you will get a chance to chat with me and ask any questions you might have or just say hi, I'm working on my assignments, or I'm ready to turn in assignments. Please make sure that you check on weekly assignments for the week on Monday. 
Etiquette and procedures for our virtual classes: In order to get your assignments you will have to log into Clever to get to Canvas. Once in there you will check the classes that are on Canvas for assignments. Assignments will be available on Monday and be due by Friday of each week. Remember - if you have any questions ask them. Zooms will be done on a daily basis but you are only required twice a week. Please read the info early about the times. Etiquette for zooms: pretty much the same as of any other class:
Be on time                                                  Keep the video turned on and pointed at your face
Wait to talk if someone else is speaking    Don't share your screen unless the teacher says so
No chatting in background while on           Dress appropriately while on zoom
Must participate in zoom conference         You will be directed to make sure you sign in 
                                                                   through chat box
This is for conversation and helping          Also be sure to ask questions for clarity  and to help
each other                                                 others out
