Students will manage their work from a digital learning platform; in elementary, Google Classroom, and in secondary, Canvas. Many students are already accustomed to using these platforms and are already doing schoolwork via these digital Learning Management Systems. To prepare, ask your child if they use one of these tools and have them show you how they log in. If your child is not yet familiar with these tools, you and they will receive instructions from their teacher.

Chromebooks will be distributed on Tuesday, March 17 between the hours of 12:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.
Parents/Guardians will be able to pick up Chromebooks at their neighborhood Elementary School. Chromebooks must be picked up by a person who is 18 years or older.
There are enough Chromebooks for all any student that does not have access to a device at home. The situation is changing and developing at a rapid pace, and we will do our best to keep parents informed.
