Quarantine - Synchronous Instruction

In the event your student’s classroom or school has transitioned to virtual instruction to quarantine, please check the teacher’s Dojo account and Google classrooms for classroom or school-specific directions and links to join virtual classrooms.

Day 1 of a transition to Virtual Instruction will be an asynchronous learning day in which students will work independently on assignments access through Google Classroom. The remaining days of virtual instruction will be live instruction requiring students to join their online classrooms using Zoom links provided to them in Google Classroom and/or Dojo.

Please contact your school or teacher if your child needs a device, Internet/WiFi access, or help accessing assignments.

  • Students in need of technical assistance with their district issued equipment, should contact the IT Help Desk (ext. 4357 (English), 4359 (Spanish), 4170 (General).
