Attendance sheets are due next week by Friday, March 15th at 12:00. The attendance sheet is the green sheet on which students circle the subject area in which they completed work for the day. Each attendance sheet is worth about $700 for HomeTech. Unfortunately, we did not receive many green sheets last month, and our attendance report to the state is due in April. Your help with this is much appreciated. I also want to ask families to help us update their information in Aeries. If you have a new phone number and/or address, please give us a call, and we will help you make sure all information in our system is current. Thank you and have a week end!

Our staff at HomeTech has been listening to our families, and most of our families are saying they would appreciate flexibility in our scheduling and fewer days required at school.

Dear Students and Parents/Guardians, In order to try to streamline the last couple of weeks of school for students completing all or part of the semester online, your teachers will be uploading your assignments to Google Classroom. All teachers will be posting all their assignments to the class named: HomeTech Independent Study. The class code is bypc3p Students will need to go to the assignment for each of their courses (except electives) and open the link to see the assignment. Assignments do not need to be printed--students may complete their assignment on a separate document (either hard copy/digital/google document) and email it back to his/her advisory teacher. Students could also take a picture of their work and email the picture to his/her teacher. mervin@hometech.org thamm@hometech.org dreynolds@hometech.org gkemp@hometech.org bsanders@hometech.org hervin@hometech.org devans@hometech.org

I am excited to tell you that we are planning to open HomeTech to our students and families on Monday, December 3rd. We will be following our regular class schedule for secondary students (grades 7 - 12) for the week of December 3rd. For example, our juniors will have their advisory and block classes (English, history, and science) on Monday. We will also will have our algebra 1 and algebra 1A classes at the normal time. Our 8th grade students will have their regular math class, and elementary students will be contacted by their teachers. If it becomes clear that we are not able to run our regular schedule, we will modify the schedule to fit your family’s needs. You will be getting a phone call from your teacher within the next day or two. Please share how we can help your family transition back to school. We will be housed in Living Hope Fellowship Church at 355 Panama Ave. in Chico. We look forward to seeing soon. Thank you.

I hope this message finds your family in a comfortable, safe place. This had been a difficult time for all of us. I am working very closely with all other Paradise Charter leaders along with help from other leaders from Butte County Office of Education and California Charter School Association to create a plan for our families to begin school again on December 3rd. Our School is still standing in Paradise, but we do not know how long it will be until we can start school there again. We will create a temporary site for the short-term, and we are looking for more permanent site options for our school. I am thinking we will be based somewhere in Chico. HomeTech’s staff has been calling our students to check on our families and share news as we get it. I also will be posting information on our website and on our Facebook page. Feel free to contact us, if you have not yet made contact with your teacher. Our email addresses are the first initial of our first name and our last name at HomeTech.org. To contact me, email mervin@hometech.org. I am looking forward to seeing you all again very soon. Your families have been in my thoughts and prayers.
