Digital Learning Day - Friday, November 3
Friday, November 3 is the next GCPS Digital Learning Day. All students will learn from home, completing work assigned by their teachers. This newsletter provides you with some guidance and reminders as you prepare for DLD.
THINGS TO DO BEFORE A DIGITAL LEARNING DAY
We encourage you to make sure your child is ready for DLD before November 3. This will make the morning of the Digital Learning Day smoother for everyone!
- Has your child joined the necessary Google Classrooms?
- Most of our students have done this in their regular classroom.
- Parents cannot join a GCPS Google Classroom.
- If your child is using a home device for DLD, have they logged into their Student Portal and Google account prior to DLD?
- Have you added your child's GCPS Google account to any personal devices?
- If planning to use a tablet (iPad, Kindle, etc...) for DLD, have you downloaded all the necessary apps?
