COVID-19 Parent Resources

School is held virtually during COVID-19 building closures.  This resource page is meant to serve the following purposes:
  1. Help parents connect children to teachers and online classrooms;
  2. Support parents with academic, social/emotional health, and technology resources;
  3. Share contact information of school personnel with parents to help as needed at home.


Connecting Your Child

The district has created a portal to organize and list all online learning resources for you.  Some of the online tools teachers use to engage students are listed below:
  • Google Classroom
  • SeeSaw
  • NearPod
  • MyOn
  • Freckle
  • Epic
Additionally, teachers offer live meetings with students using Zoom and Google Meet.  Ask your child's teacher for more information and links to join.  Many teachers use Remind to communicate through messages/texts on your smart phone.

Your child must be logged in to the computer/internet using his or her JE account to access these resources.  If you need your child's log-in information, please first ask the teacher.  Then, if needed, you can complete and submit a request using the Technology Assistance Link.



Support

Virtual learning can be overwhelming.  With the added stresses associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, we all may need some help at one point or another.  Hopefully the items below are useful to you and other parents.  If you have any resources to share, please email them to Elbridge Elementary Principal R. J. Hartwell (rjhartwell@jecsd.org).
