Since yesterday's update, we have received notice that we will not be using online video conferencing in this school district for the time being due to a hacking incident yesterday. The rest of the information below is still accurate, we will just be having to find alternative communication methods. For the time being, I will be available by phone and email during designated "class times" if you need any help with your SmartMusic assignments.
If you call during those times and I do not pick up, I am probably on the phone with another student. Leave a message and I will call you back! I won't recognize who it is by the phone number, there are too many of you. Thanks for being patient as we figure out all this craziness!
Sadly, the remainder of the 2019-20 school year has been moved entirely to distance learning and we will not be returning to the classroom. Today we started our regular distance learning schedule for periods 1-4. Periods 5-7 will be meeting tomorrow online.
According to directions given by ODE, Roseburg High School has adopted the following online meeting schedule. The choirs and guitar class will meet with Miss Cherry at those times via Zoom. To receive the Zoom invitation with passwords, contact Miss Cherry. There may be a time when these meeting times aren't "required" for everyone all the time, but for now, assume you need to be there at the beginning of every required class period! It won't necessarily go the full hour.
