Getting started information
Connectivity resources for families with no internet or limited internet (will post here as we learn more)
By Monday, the outdoor access point will be pointing toward the school parking lot, for students to sync their chromebooks or log in on their device while in their cars--school chromebooks will pick up the network TPS-Chrome
You can use any device (including phones) that connect to the internet to download the free apps or access the content through a browser. Chrome browser is probably the best one to use in grades 3-12, but all of them work.
School chromebooks are still available for those who have not checked one out yet--follow this LINK to sign up
For grades K-2 and the Seesaw app, it is more difficult to use with a chromebook/desktop. Tablets are the best device to use with this particular app.

Grades 3-12, Using Google Classroom and Google Hangouts/Meet
For Google Meet, teachers will be sharing the link to the call via Google Classroom (it should also appear in their school email as well). Students can follow the link to join the call, and after the call, teachers will be able to upload the video to Google Classroom if they choose to do so.
Some teachers will be using Kami to share pdf files and have students complete them. This video will show a student how to open an assignment in Kami, and use text boxes and drawing to complete the assignment.
