Emory School Clean-up:

Friday, November 16th @1:05 pm

Each class will be provided with a plastic glove for each student and a bag for every two students.  These supplies should be in your mailboxes by Thursday.

We will also be making a map with your designated area for clean up.

If you are unable to participate in this Emory cleanup please let the second grade team know by Wednesday, November 14th.

LanSchool Issues:

Big picture-if you are having issues with LanSchool-enter a work order with very specific details.

Troubleshooting

**If the Chromebooks show in the class list but do not display their screens (in the thumbnail view) this is because kids are choosing the option to “deny access” and should be told to restart their Chromebooks and choose correctly (this is a classroom management issue for the teacher to handle).

**If the Chromebooks do not show up in the class list teachers may need help with finding/adding students to their class list. Or perhaps the Chromebooks need to be reset and re-enrolled to fix issues with their student client (techs can help with either of these issues).

**If the complaint has to do with the “All Your Brand” messages appearing where the student name should be, we know about this and there’s nothing we can do at the moment. This is an issue between Stoneware (makers of LanSchool) and Google.

Grant Writer:

The District is working with a grant writer. They are focused on applying for funding to supplement instruction, not for things that are considered basic services. Let me know if you have any questions. If you are considering applying for a grant, let me know and I will reach out to the District on your behalf. 

Report Cards in Cum Files:

Thank you for your hard work completing your report cards. Please remember to file a copy in each child’s cum folder. Thank you to those of you who have already completed this.
