Quarantine - In the event that you are at home under quarantine you will be able to access our class agenda and information on Canvas. If the entire class or school is under quarantine we will meet virtually on Microsoft Teams. I will contact you through Canvas announcements and email to keep you updated if this happens.

Wish List:

These items are not required but would greatly benefit our class.

Disinfectant wipes                        Tissues                             Ziploc bags (gallon size)

Napkins                 Paper towels            Parchment Paper

Chromebooks: Students are expected to bring their charged Chromebooks to class each day. We will use them frequently.

Cooking Labs: We will have cooking labs most Friday’s. Your students look forward to this every week and their lab partners rely on them. Please plan their doctor appointments and your vacations accordingly. 

Culinary Safety Agreement- Your student will once again have the opportunity to use cooking appliances, equipment, and utensils as part of this course. Appropriate instruction in the safe and proper operation of this equipment has been given to them as part of the Food and Nutrition curriculum. We will have a brief review of using the equipment safely. It would be a good idea to do this at home as well. Although close supervision is maintained at all times, and safety precautions are taken through classroom rules and proper training, the ‘hands-on’ activities in this class present a potential hazard. Students are expected to observe all safety rules and procedures for safe operation of kitchen appliances, equipment, and utensils. They are expected to conduct themselves in a safe and professional manner. Failure to conduct themselves in a safe and professional manner may result in suspension from lab activities.
