IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR KINDER AND 1ST GRADE PARENTS

The Google Classroom app on your iPad is currently experiencing problems when trying to open your list of Google Classrooms. This is a known issue that Apple is working on. The recommended work-around is to use the Chrome browser rather than the app to access your Google Classroom. To do this open Chrome and go to https://classroom.google.com/

Students will login to their Google Classrooms for class everyday. Watch the video below to find out how.

How do I check student attendance, assignments, and grades?

The best way to check for daily assignments and due dates is to use your students’ device to go to https://app.mystudentdashboard.com/. This is the student portal for teacher assignments made in Google Classroom. To learn more about how to use this student portal, visit the link here.

To check on student daily attendance and term grades, parents should use the SUSD Parent Portal. If you have never used the Parent Portal, contact your students’ school office and use the directions linked here to get started.

What if I’m having trouble connecting to the internet at home?

If you aren’t connected to the Internet, you can still view and edit your Google files. Follow the directions to set up your Chromebook for offline working. Any changes made to files while offline will then sync in Google Drive once the student is connected back online.
