Claus, Mr. Randall

Dear Parents and Students,

We are on an unprecedented odyssey in education thanks to the Corona Virus.

Each week, until schools are cleared to open again, I will publish the assignments for students to work on in Bible, History, Reading, Writing, and Keyboarding on this webpage.  Students can download any assignments posted, fill in the answers, save it, and then email it to me at randall.claus@flcoe.org.  Mr. Cruz will be sending separate instructions for Math and Science.

Beginning Thursday, March 26, I will be asking students to log into Microsoft Teams for face to face instructions and to answer questions.

As we go through this process, questions will invariably arise.  Do not hesitate to ask your questions when we meet on Microsoft Teams or to call or text me at 941-889-8014.
