COVID-19 Contingency Plan:

In the event that the COVID-19 pandemic affects our ability to meet in person in a classroom for the 2020-21 school year, we will make the following adjustments to this class. Tutor and students will meet at the scheduled class time via live video streaming and the class will be recorded and posted for students to view as needed. Labs will be conducted online and some will be completed at home.  Supplies will be provided by the tutor for home experiments.  Assignments and testing will be submitted electronically, and feedback will be provided electronically. Our goal is to meet in person as soon as it is feasible. We may begin classroom meetings at any point during the school year as the COVID-19 situation resolves.
