Learning from Home

Printer-friendly version

Students throughout the District are using Learning Management Systems (LMS) to connect with teachers and staff.  Teachers have been working with students and families to become familiar with the new way of learning.  Time spent online varies with age level.  Two websites giving students additional resources and help with technology can be found online:

Elementary Learning Resources

Google Classrooms
Classroom can be accessed two ways: 1) By teacher invite, and 2) by going to classroom.google.com and clicking on the "+". That will give the option to join the class. The teacher will have to provide the class code for the individual to join.

BUZZ
Students use a Learning Management System (LMS) called BUZZ,  which provides students with one location for communication with their teachers for all of their courses.  BUZZ allows different school staff to support them with online learning, such as advisory or ELT teachers, counselors, and principal.

If not completed, students should look for a Google survey through Infinite Campus Messenger.  The survey will be from their middle school ELT teacher or  high school Advisor, and It will ask about access to BUZZ and comfort with online learning.

Middle School students are should limit their screentime to 20 minutes per class.
