Reminder about Inclement Weather...
If GCPS has a Digital Learning Day due to inclement weather, students who would normally have a session are expected to visit my Google Classroom page and complete the assignment. The assignment is typically posted in the announcements section and should take no more than 15 minutes.
If you have speech/language concerns...
The first step is contacting your grade level counselor to set up a Student Support Team (SST) meeting. From there, a representative from the speech/language team will meet with parents, teachers, and the counselor to discuss how we can best support your child. The process is tailored to each individual student's needs.
