Virtual Learning Resources
Device: Chromebooks are sent home daily with students in grades 3-5. In event of a virtual learning day, devices already issued to each student will be sent home with the student along with a charger with the student's name on it and for grades K-1 a Quickcard that allows login.
Logins: Students in grades 2-5 will log in using typed logins.
Remember your username is graduation year first name dot last name
Your password is GC and your student number
If you cannot get the login to work double check that the GC in the password is capitalized.
For grades K-1 the classroom teacher can dojo you a copy of the quickcard in the event it is lost. We ask that if we send home a copy of the quickcard that you take a picture of it to use as a backup.
ClassDojo: This year our school will be using ClassDojo as our school communication app. This app allows us to connect students, parents, teachers, and school leaders. Please contact your child's homeroom teacher for invite or go to: https://www.classdojo.com/invite/?s=55808c176f0c41f11aa82a0d
Classlink is our preferred source to access the apps and programs that we use regularly. This includes Google apps and links to iReady. Students can access classlink by opening Google and clicking the link at the top left corner.
Google Classroom: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IgS-hoSIjnw
This Youtube video explains Google Classroom for parents. No class codes will be given out this year. Each student already uses this in computer classes on a weekly basis. Teachers will be adding assignments to each class if we have a virtual learning day.

Shutdown Devices: Students need to remember that when they are finished with the Chromebook, they need to use the Red Sign Out Button at the bottom right corner of the screen. Allow the device to cycle down and then click the Shut Down Button at the left corner and then Shut Down again to safely turn off the device. All lights on the side of the Chromebook should be off before closing the lid.
