Google Meet

A Guide For Students & Parents

What is Google Meet?

Google Meet is a video meeting tool that will allow students and teachers to connect for live teaching or help sessions. Sessions will be recorded and can be available for students who cannot attend the live session.

Google Meet is the only SWP approved platform for live video and chat with students and may only be used in compliance with certain guidelines explained here. This includes extracurricular groups.


Students will need to connect with their school-issued Google account by following the steps below. (Note: Students using phones or tablets will need to install the Google Meet mobile app.)

  1. Go to (or open the Google Meet app) at the meeting start time.
  2. Sign in with your school Google Account
    email address (*****
    password (ID number)
  3. Click the button to join a meeting.

  4. Enter the meeting code provided by the teacher.

Students will not be able to join the meeting if they are signed into a personal account or by calling-in. (Sorry… we have to follow certain laws when it comes to connecting with students!)
