As part of Bruin Pride, I challenge all of you to be thoughtful in your remembrance and do something of service – no matter how small – to honor this Patriot Day.
The 3P’s - Being Engaged in Class
Students, as a reminder, you must be engaged in your class from the time it starts until you are dismissed. You may not login, stay for attendance, and then walk away from your computer. Honestly, would you do that if we were in class on campus? Of course not. You wouldn’t do that because it’s
against the rules, the law, and you’d get caught. Well the same thing warnings and consequences apply for Distance Learning. So, stay in class and don’t get in trouble with the school rules or laws.
