Getting Started for Continued Learning From Home
1. Parents will be receiving contact from your child’s teachers via the emails we have in our student information system (MyEd). Teachers will be including some general information on how they will provide continuation of learning and opportunities for students to connect. Many teachers will be implementing online platforms such as Microsoft (MS) Teams, OneNote or MyBluePrint to continue the work your children have been doing all year long. Some teachers have already created classes in MS Teams and students will either have received an email to their NVSD Outlook email (see guide for students to access NVSD email). Parents or students may begin to receive class “Join Codes” to classes in the following week. Please ask your child to check their emails personal and NVSD 44 email on a regular basis.
2. MS Teams is a new platform for most teachers and students. We have created a basic quick guide for students to access MS Teams and then join classes. The PDF document, “Quick Guide for Students for Microsoft Teams” is now available on the school website under the ‘Students’ menu. Additionally, many teachers may include this guide in their emails to families. Students can access MS Teams from any laptop or device. The preferred browser is “Chrome”; students will need to download the App for use on a smart device, tablet or phone. Students access Office365 and MS Teams from the portal; their login credentials are the ones they use for computers in the school.
3. Although some teachers may have student emails, moving forward, we are encouraging all students to also access their NVSD44 Outlook email. Teachers may start to send messages to students through this email. The login for all NVSD online platforms can be accessed using the same login. Students can sign on to using their unique computer ID, a six-digit code ending in s, (e.g. 122546s) which they use to sign onto computers at school. This is the same number that the student uses to login to the school computer at Seycove. If support is needed with the login, ask your child to email our library teacher Mr. Hughes firstname.lastname@example.org or Office Assistant Jan Knapp email@example.com. See guide for students to access NVSD email and can also be access on our Seycove school website under Students.
