PowerpointWeekly Self-Study Lessons
During College Closure due to COVID19 Pandemic

Because as of March 20, 2020, no one know yet how long the College closure will last, lessons will be posted on this site only two weeks at a time until further notice.

NOTE: Although it is recommended that the schedule shown below be followed, students will have until 11:59 p.m. each Friday to complete the CANVAS review quizzes that follow each self-study lesson in order to earn their attendance grade for the week. EACH COMPLETED REVIEW QUIZ WILL EARN YOU THE POINT VALUE OF ONE DAY'S ATTENDANCE.
