Hello My Name Is...

Loria Phipps


7th Grade Civics Teacher

COVID-19 Closure Information

I hope all of you are well during this difficult time. I am here to help and support all of you. 

If you are using Google Classroom to access your work, follow these steps.

1. Log in to google.com with your school login. Make sure you put @stu.dcps.k12.va.us at the end of your username.

2. In the box of boxes in the upper right-hand corner click on Google Classroom.

3. Click on my class.

If you need to contact me at any time for help or questions you may use any of the following methods:

Check the Calendar tab for completion dates of the learning activities that are posted in Google Classroom. You will have until Friday, May 1, 2020 to complete the activities, however, I would suggest you complete according to the calendar.   If you have any questions, use the methods above to contact me.  


Beginning April 15th, teachers are required to be available 4 hours Monday - Friday for office hours.

I will be available - 10am -12pm and 4pm - 6pm

Of course, we can still communicate after those times. Those times are just the “official” times. The Central Office has informed teachers that if we can’t make contact with students twice a week through social media then we will be required to call each student that has not checked in. If contact cannot be made by any method, we are to inform the School Board Office and they will then request a resource/law enforcement officer to attempt to make contact with students who have not responded. This is so easy on Google Classroom, just complete the weekly check in!

Those will be posted on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Our first check-in is Tuesday, April 14th and check-ins will continue until Thursday, May 28th.

Any questions, please let me know!
