Notes from Linda

Elementary Math Resources Page in Haiku

Hello Friends, As Rhonda shared in an earlier email, a listing of all of the math resources that have been shared with you has been created. The information is located in Haiku on the Extras tab. To access the Elementary Math Resources Class, go to your portal page in Haiku and click on the Extras tab (on the left side of the portal page next to the word classes). Please let me know of additional resources that may be added.

iPads

Thank you for your patience and assistance with the iPads. When inputting the Apple ID information for each iPad, it was determined that another step has to be completed by Technology in order for the apps to deploy. This will take time to complete. Mr. Grey has been working on this process. I will come to your classroom to assist him in the Apple ID process. If you will leave your Apple ID cards (locked) inside the cart, this will be very helpful to us as we work with the iPads. Also, if there is an iOS update notice on the iPad, please install the update. Thanks for your assistance.
