Reminder: Thursday PLC

Reminder: Thursdays schedules are adjusted.


AM Cohort students will meet from 8:00 to 10:25 AM.

Help Keep Zoom Sessions Safe

Starting tomorrow, Thursday, September 10, students must use their school-issued Google accounts (ending with @loswego.k12.or.us) in order to be entered into Zoom sessions.


If you are using Clever to access the class Zoom sessions, you will not need to change anything. This is the preferred method to accessing Zoom links.


If you are using the Zoom app (that is not through the teacher’s Clever page), you will need to make sure your student is logged in using their school-issued Google account credentials. Login credentials can be found on the backside of the Clever QR code. Tip: You may need to add “@loswego.k12.or.us” to the end of the username.


More information about how to log in can be found in the Falcon News Special Edition: Essential Logins.


If you need additional support logging in, please submit a technology work order request to LOSD Zendesk or call the front office at 503-534-2350.

Change Student Zoom Display Name to their Legal Name

Many students already have their Zoom display name as their actual names. Some have "FH-02... " as their Zoom display name. If your student's Zoom display name is not their legal name, please change the name by following the steps below. Steps are provided for both Chromebooks (2 steps) and iPads (5 steps).


Please use the student's legal name. You may also use a preferred first name. Do not use other names or words in the display name.


Changing the display name only needs to be done once and will help teachers admit students from the waiting room and manage breakout groups.

Chromebook Step 1 of 2: Find the Profile Page and Edit Button

In the Profile tab, select "Edit" on the right side of the screen, next to the Display Name.
