How to keep up When Your Child is Quarantined

We know that being quarantined is tough! Getting work done from home is never easy. However, we want you to know the resources available to you and your child.


Utilize Google Classroom


  • Every assignment is posted in Google Classroom.
  • Every student logs into this program daily from school so they know their passwords.
  • You as the parent can access their Google Classroom using your child's login.
  • If your child is saying they don't know their password please contact their teacher or reach out to our registaur. We have that information for you!
  • Don't assume that when a student submits an assignment in Google Classroom that they completed it. Always open the submission and check their work.



Check TAC


  • Grades are posted in TAC.
  • This is where parents can go to see grades.
  • Teachers update grades weekly.
  • If you need help getting into TAC please contact our registuare
