QHSLS Launches Remote Learning (RL): Get Ready

We open our virtual doors on Monday, 3/23, 9AM. QHSLS may not have a building, but we are still a school!

As we begin remote learning, please recognize that we will need everyone’s care, patience, and support as we figure out how to teach and learn in this new environment.

Also note the most updated resources for RL are below. We have made changes since the mailing sent to you on 3/18/2020.

Before getting started in Google Classroom on Monday, it’s important you watch this video introduction. (Please be kind when viewing–we are video-making amateurs. We are learning too!) And yes, QHSLS now has a Vimeo Channel!
