Dear West Campus students and families,

By AP Biology, Chemistry In The Earth System, Honors Chemistry

During this trying time coping with our lives being affected by the COVID-19 outbreak and the school closure, I want to reassure you that I will still be providing high quality lessons that West Campus students have grown accustomed to.  I will be posting the lesson agendas and objectives daily on my website (wcscience.com) for students and parents to have access to.  I will also be using our Edmodo platform for other lesson elements.  Students will be able to upload their work to that platform, where I will provide constructive feedback on how they may improve their work.  The situation being dynamic I will be waiving late penalties as long as the delays are reasonable.  Students may complete work on lined paper if they are unable to print the hardcopy of the material and upload photos using their smartphones or computers.  Further instructions will follow in the days ahead.

Please stay safe and healthy during our extended absence from school.  Please log onto Edmodo daily to keep up with your work.  If you need to contact me you may e-mail me at s_mapplebeck@yahoo.com.   I will be active during weekdays between 8 am to 3 pm.

Sincerely,

Scott Mapplebeck

Science Instructor

West Campus High School
