Remote Learning Day Tomorrow Good Afternoon R-PEL Families, A short time ago Mr. Edwards communicated to our community that we will have a remote learning day tomorrow. All R-PEL teachers have communicated their learning plan to their students for tomorrow's remote learning. Many teachers and parents have also been in communication regarding the details about their remote learning opportunities. While the plan is for us to be asynchronous (meaning videos, websites and links through an online platform), there may be some variation based on what the teachers feel is best for their students. All information will be communicated to the students via Google Classroom and SeeSaw. Please know and understand that this is our first "remote" snow day...so there may be some bumps. Have a great night! Paul
