    Can parents join classroom Teams meetings?

    No. If you wish to see what it is happening in the classroom, you can sit beside your student at their device. 


    My student does not have a device.  What can they do? 

    We recognize that every student will need a device and are working with the district to get more for distribution.  Currently, if your student(s) do not have a device: 

    1. Make sure you are on the list to receive one when available.  
      Text @needlaptop to 81010 (once you have received a device, please remove yourself from this Remind list.
    2. Students should read every day. They can familiarize themselves with their textbooks (see textbook pick up schedule above). 


    1. If your student has a Smart Phone, they can download the Canvas and Teams Apps in order to view and join a live meeting with Teachers. This is not ideal but will help keep your student up-to-date until they have a device.
