Welcome to Mrs. Turner's Learning Lab!


Greetings Families!

DCPS has begun covering new content in the distance learning packets so most of our instruction will be geared to supporting your child in this way. In case you don't have a physical copy, I have loaded all of the packets in your child's assignment tab on Microsoft Teams. Just click on "Mrs. Turner's Crew" and you'll find the information there. Please reach out if you have any questions or are in need of assistance.

Please note there has been a change in office hours to accommodate live lessons. My schedule differs slightly each day as I provide Math, ELA and S.S. support for my students in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades. If I am unavailable during a time you try to reach me, I'll gladly return your call as soon as possible.

                                                            Office Hours
                                            10:30-1:00-Available for Phone Calls (most days)
                                            1:00-3:00- Instruction (most days)

Please view the Calendar tab for more information on my availability throughout the day.
To reach me during office hours, please call or text my phone. You can also email [email protected] or fill out the information in the "Contact Me" tab.

Here is the recommended daily schedule for your child. Click on the Useful Links tab to access the resources referenced here.
