Getting Ready for Remote Learning

Our school started remote learning on Monday, March 23, 2020. Teachers are available to assist students and parents Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 2:20 p.m. Some of that time will be live (see class schedules) while the rest will be by email or through Google Classrooms. During student independent work time, teachers will be planning and uploading assignments, grading, taking attendance, and responding to emails. Students are expected to follow the daily schedule to the best of their ability. They will have a whole day to complete their assignments. Attendance will be recorded daily to ensure that everyone is participating in remote learning. Due to the various information that parents must learn in order to help their children with remote learning, we have broken down the process into step by step directions.

Step 1: Please check in with your teachers often. Check Google Classrooms, teachers' websites, Class Dojo, PupilPath, etc.

Step 2: Log into your ps97.org email address.

Step 3: Join Google Classroom.

  • Watch this video for more information about Google Classroom: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uVJHM5V7l2M

  • Once in Google Classroom: https://classroom.google.com/h ,please add cluster teachers’ classroom codes. The students will be joining their cluster teachers in different Google Classrooms.

  • A list of Google Classroom codes for cluster teachers is shared by the classroom teachers.

Step 4: Set up Lexia on your device. Lexia is a program that provides students with differentiated literacy instruction.

Step 5: Set up i-Ready on your device. i-Ready is a program that provides individualized instruction based on each student's unique needs in Reading and Math.

  • Please visit this website: https://login.i-ready.com/ or download the i-Ready app on your device.

  • Click your student’s name and enter the class number and password that was provided to you.
