Remote Learning Begins Monday, March 30
Beginning Monday, March 30, students will begin to login to their Google classroom(s) for Remote Learning assignments. Students in grades PK-3 will be joining a grade-level Google Classroom that is being created for them. Specific times and additional information will be communicated to families prior to March 30.
How will students ask teachers questions?
Teachers will be holding remote office hours for students via Google Meet beginning March 30 to answer student questions. Students may check their Google Classroom for a list of opportunities to conference with teachers. If the published office hours are not convenient, students may email teachers.
How will parents/guardians ask teachers questions?
Parents may reach out to teachers via email. Teachers will be checking email daily during typical school day hours. Parents may request to schedule a private Google Meet conference as needed.
What is Google Meet?
Google Meet is a video conferencing application. Two or more people can connect remotely using a computer. If a webcam is available on the computers that each participant is using, participants can see each other. If only a microphone is available, then it’s like a phone call.
How can families learn more about using Google at Home to support students during remote learning?
This Google at Home video
was created earlier in the year to help parents understand how to support students at home. This will be a good resource to familiarize with Google Classroom, how to login to accounts, and other relevant information for "Remote Learning."
