    Dear Parents and Guardians,
    First, I want to welcome you to my class. I look forward to meeting you and your child, and hope that this year will be a success! Eighth grade can be very challenging and is preparing your child for success in high school and beyond. To accomplish this objective PLEASE ensure your child attends class on time, completes ALL assignments, and is ready to learn! I will be sharing a lot of information on the first day of school on what is to be expected for on-line etiquette in a remote learning atmosphere and how we will move forward as a class in this new environment.
    Second, I will be using Remind 101 as a communication tool for immediate questions and concerns. I strongly encourage you and your child to join ASAP so we can kick start our new year together and help keep everyone informed on what is happening in my class.
    You can download the Remind 101 communications application and join your child's class by going to "www.remind.com/join" and enter your child's class code:
    ELA Block 2.4 Monday/Thursday (10:00 am-12:00 pm) @a9cqh43
    ELA Block 1.3 Tuesday/Friday (8:00 am- 10:00 am) @cgea87
    ELA Block 2.4 Tuesday/Friday (10:00 am-12:00 pm) @dah63ab
    PLEASE when setting up your remind name to include your first and last name for easy identification. Thank you!
    Lastly, please make sure you have a Genesis Parent Portal Account to track your child's grades. You can find this information on the District's webpage under Site Shortcuts entitled: GENESIS PARENT PORTAL.
    Any questions or concerns, please contact me at notoole@longbranch.k12.nj.us or via a Remind 101 message. Stay safe and healthy.
