Hello everyone! This is where to find resources during the unexpected closure! I'll put links under the useful links section, and then some other resources under files and documents. All of the virtual assignments will be found in the Distance Learning Assignments tab. If you ever need anything or have any questions, please feel free to email me at Slempkl@pwcs.edu.
