WELCOME BACK DAY 3

HTMS: Home of the Legends

Tubman community,


Today, we faced some experiences of students not being able to log in to a class because they did not know the process. Also, a few students' passwords were changed without their knowledge, and it was unbeknownst to me, too. I know this has presented a challenge and frustration on your part. As a continuous quality improvement organization, we learn from what works to what did not work and make adjustments accordingly.


In today's bulletin, please read it carefully and share it with your scholar.


Tomorrow, all scholars will log in to their 5th-period class at 9:30 a.m. Students will log in to a google meet code that is aligned to their fifth-period class. Please read the document carefully to log in to the correct course. All of the pertinent information is below in the first linked document.


Tomorrow, Friday, September 4th, we will begin at 9:30 a.m., and scholars will log in to their 5th-period class. The format code to log in to your fifth-period class is Teacher's last name period # (no spaces and all lower case). e.g., zookperiod5


If your scholar's schedule states "TBD" for the teacher, please use the course subject in place of the teacher's last name (mathperiod5, healthperiod#, scienceperiod#, avidperiod#). The reason for the TBD designation for the teacher's name is because we are in the process of hiring the teachers for the following subject areas: science 8th, math 6th, health, and AVID. Candidates have been identified and are in the hiring process.


Scholars will follow the same code format for their 6th, 7th, and 8th-period classes; please follow the same format to access your teacher's Google Meets' classroom (Teacherslastnameperiod6).


If your scholar is unsure or confused, please email their next period teacher or an administrator, lmair@pps.net, ekrauel@pps.net, or amarquardt@pps.net. You can also contact Ms. Holmes at jholmes1@pps.net.


Lastly, scholars are to log back into their 8th-period class at 2:30 p.m. They have a break from 12:00 -2:30 p.m.

All students have a google account that has been created for them as middle school students. Here is a video link that shows how to join a meeting with the meeting code.

Please contact our very own teacher, Ms. Holmes. She will gladly assist you with your password and other technology needs. Please email her at jholmes1@pps.net.


As always, you can call the school for information on Chromebooks and Hotspots availability. We look forward to seeing you tomorrow.


Thank you.
