Monday, April 6, 2020:



For the remainder of the school year, I will no longer be posting assignments + information on THIS webpage.

It doesn't make sense to post both here AND also on GC / google classroom as I've been doing since school dismissal so I've decided to just use google classroom for EACH CLASS separately:


ELA, Study-Skills [if you have me], & MATH Period 8


In GC, you will notice several categories listed on the left side & under the "classwork" tab only 


Please do not use the stream section of GC to make any random comments and/or ask questions about assignments ~ there are many others ways to reach out to me 


As always, please remember to follow ALL appropriate online expectations / communication guidelines as stated in the technology contract


 Thank you!

~Ms. Sairrino


 *Be safe ~ by taking necessary precautions

*Be smart ~ by staying informed

*Be kind ~ by supporting each other

CA Dept of Public Health: How can people protect themselves?

There is currently no vaccine to prevent COVID-19. The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person between people who are in close contact with one another (3-6 feet). This occurs through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.


While at home, continue to be extra careful & practice good hygiene!

*try to avoid close contact with people who are sick & cover your mouth when sneezing / coughing

*wash your hands OFTEN [20 sec] & use hand sanitizer [60+ % alcohol based]

*avoid touching your face

*avoid public places with a lot of people [social distancing!]
