What To Do If You Miss a Broadcast OR Cannot Connect Due to Poor Network 

We are very excited for the $3.9 million project funded for San Juan School District because it will bring school network services closer to scholar homes. In the meantime, we know connectivity is of poor quality in many locations. Please do the following if you miss a Broadcast: 

 1.    Consider going to a SJSD Drive-Up WiFi location for the next Broadcast, including the WHS Parking Lot, 

 2.    Watch the recorded Broadcast and email or call your teacher to tell them what you learned and/or what questions you have, and/or 

 3.    Join a teacher during an Online Office Hours.   The bottom line is for scholars to communicate with teachers. We can help.

Sticking to a Routine is Important

Learning can happen anytime, anywhere. However, engaging with a teacher is only possible Monday through Friday, from 9 am-4 pm.

 Be sure to work on each course every day. Use Canvas as much as possible.
