EAS Principal's Update

September 4, 2020

Zoom Issues?

NHUSD has added a security feature across the district that only allows "authenticated" users into our Zoom Classrooms. This feature is called Zoom SECURE CLASSROOM. This means the only way to access our classrooms is to be logged in through students NHUSD account (Clever) to access the Zoom link.

In addition, all other email accounts or Zoom accounts must be logged off. No personal accounts of any type of program can be logged into at all while trying to log into Zoom Links.

Is your Chromebook Glitchy?

We have had reports of Chromebooks being glitchy in various ways:

  • Screen turns black
  • Unable to hear
  • Being dropped from Zoom Meetings

This may be happening because your chromebook settings are off. To reset your school chromebook to default, you can follow these steps or if you prefer, watch a video. If you do this, and your chromebook is still not working properly, please fill out our Eastin Chromebook Issues Form to let us know, and we will issue you a new chromebook.

Emergency Asynchronous Instruction

As you know, the shift to Distance Learning has fundamentally changed how much of education is conducted. Things that we may have taken for granted in the past, such as a substitute teacher coming into a classroom and covering for a teacher who is absent, have become exponentially more complicated. One way that we are able to address teacher absence is through off-line or "asynchronous" assignments that take the place of direct, "synchronous" instruction during the school day. This use of asynchronous assignments to take the place of direct instruction is specifically described in and allowed by legislation that authorizes distance learning.

For the majority of your student's instructional time, teachers will be conducting classes "in person" and on camera. There will be times, however, when a teacher may assign students work to complete in lieu of regular class time instruction when they are not available.

Thank you for your understanding.
