Welcome to the Red Mountain 2020 school year. As we begin the year under unusual circumstances, I want to reassure both parents and students that every effort is being made to provide the best learning experience possible for the start of the Fall semester. We recognize the potential struggles students will face and we're prepared to meet that challenge moving into August. There maybe times when computers crash, and networks fail...patience will be the key!!! Calendar on the top right is a quick look at what is happening in the class weekly. Details are found on Canvas.
Before attending class, I ask that students and parents participate in the orientation process I've provided by reviewing a series of videos which help guide you through the basics of attending class as a remote learner. As a student, this should help ease some of the anxiety of the unknown.
New to Canvas
Students new to Canvas will learn how to access the Canvas link
through the Red Mountain High School website. Canvas will be used
as the primary means of instruction for remote learners coming into the
Fall semester of 2020. All classwork will start remotely through canvas, and live through webex.
Staying connected through Canvas will be instrumental in assuring a
successful experience in science. Students will learn to navigate the
messaging system in Canvas for non-urgent messages. Students will
also be introduced to Webex, a program which supports live class sessions,
meetings and virtual office hours. Webex will be available to students
throughout the academic day. For detailed instructions on using Webex, please
download the following guide:
In addition to welcoming all new families to Red Mountain, I want to thank our existing Red Mountain family for all of their support, encouragement and patience last semester. What we were able to accomplish academically was only possible because of the sense of community, family and the strength to stand together, persevering through a semester full of unknowns.
I appreciate your patience as we get things off the ground. Please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns. Please email me with questions and I will try my best to respond as quickly as possible. Again, welcome to Red Mountain!
