    • Create a realistic work schedule - Keep up with each class, and break your day up by A/B days.
    • Don't hang around in your pajamas all day - You'll feel more productive by getting showered and dressed each day.
    • Create a designated workspace - Keep it clear of clutter. Make sure there is plenty of light. Have the materials you need (pencils, pens, paper, etc.)
    • Stay away from your phone - Put the phone away when working on schoolwork (unless you are using it for work). Please eliminate the distraction and temptation by putting it on airplane mode or in a drawer or another room.
    • Watch your sleep schedule - Don't let your sleep schedule get out of whack by binge-watching shows. While your sleep schedule may not need to be as strict, getting a good night's sleep is essential.
    • Schedule some fun things to do - Plan for something you can look forward to in your day. This is important to maintain your mental and physical health! Get outside for some fresh air. Get physically active. Plan phone calls with your friends-something more than texting to feel a social connection.
    • Communicate with your teachers. Teachers get worried if they haven't heard from students in some way, shape, or form. So they will first reach out to students to see how they can help.
    • What counts as "communication."
    • *Turning in Assignments
    • *Emailing a teacher if you are struggling or have a question
    • *Logging on to an assigned program
    • *Logging on to complete online classes if you enrolled in credit recovery
