Stay at Home Academics
Google Classroom Information
With current circumstances, we find ourselves utilizing new ways to stay connected and continue learning. One of the ways that we have easy access to is Google Classroom. Students have been set up with district Google accounts for some time now, but we are really finding use in this platform now more than ever.
We are asking that students log into Google Classroom often to check for updates with classes and stay connected with the school.
For parents of younger children that are not familiar with how to work or sign into Google Classroom, here is a link to a slide show that will walk you through the process step by step.
For any student or parent of a young student that does not know their sign in information, please fill out the form at the link below to recieve this information through email.
