Google Classroom is a free and secure learning network for teachers, students and schools. It provides a safe way for us to connect, share content, access homework, participate in discussions and receive class information. Using Google Classroom allows you and your child to have access to course work at any time through the Internet and is accessible online and through any mobile devices with Internet capabilities—including iPhone, iPad and Android devices.
Additionally, the use of Classroom will help keep students and parents informed of due dates, assignments and grades (sometimes, a grade will be posted there in addition to Jupiter Ed). Classroom is also useful to check on work missed when absent and to ask questions about assignments.
Google Classroom is used as an educational tool will be used strictly for educational purposes. Guidelines for using Google Classroom are as follows:
In the future, parents may be assigned their own accounts so they can see the work that has been assigned to your son or daughter. At that time, you may be able to see copies of all resources, but you will not have access to the actual files your son or daughter are using unless they share their own logon information with you. At that time, you may receive logon information for Google Classroom parent accounts. Parents must refrain from altering any settings or changing passwords while logged into the future Google Classroom parent accounts.
Thank you so much for being a part of our implementation of technology into our curriculum. Feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns. We look forward to a great year!
