If your child is having any issues related to technology or accessibility of resources, please contact your child's teacher or contact our tech support team directly at Be sure to include student name, teacher name, and a contact number in your email.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water. Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer, if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands. coughs and sneezes with a tissue or sleeve, not your hands, discard the tissue and wash or sanitize hands.
