20-21 Information: Remote & Hybrid
Before calling the district's family/student IT department (303) 982-3438, please try the following tricks:
Use a Chrome browser and make sure you re logged-in with your School Google account (not a personal account)
Use the log-in "Sign in with Google" button whenever it is presented
For other district applications (like www.Jeffco.Schoology.com), use your school ID only (not full email) and school password
Update: make sure your Chrome browser is updated: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Rvg5NsfWkuLEG3Ea_wRbi2O87JZ8JE68dRqO-Ew-mHg/edit?usp=sharing
History: Clear your cache/history to "All time": https://docs.google.com/document/d/1octWCBmdU2c36oC2WlI-4RmCSdhGqd7jTI-w0TMUgL8/edit?usp=sharing
Extensions: Clear out your extensions: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1jlnJ_FtYfuIdALfs7HICwQ3ki09fy_3H-yCxvqUMY4E/edit?usp=sharing
There are a lot of extensions and games students add that mess with features on your device. So, we need you to clear out anything that isn't school-used
Restart: Shutdown your computer; wait 10 seconds before restarting
After doing that, if you are still experiencing wonky issues, then call the number above. Let me Ms. Vezzetti know how it goes!
Parent/Guardian Class Updates/Summaries
Where you are not always able to see the virtual classroom unless your student is signed in, you can choose to receive updates from the teachers throughout the year.
Google Classroom -
We will be sending an invite through the student's grade level Google Classroom (Class of 2021, Class of 2022, Class of 2023, Class of 2024).
Once they send you a invite, you can accept and you will receive the summaries for each class about:
Missing work—Work not turned in when the summary was sent.
Upcoming work—Work that’s due today and tomorrow (for daily emails) or that’s due in the upcoming week (for weekly emails).
Class activities—Announcements, assignments, and questions recently posted by teachers.
You can select what notifications you would like to get (assignments posted, updates, etc) and how often. You can change at any time.
Hello parents and guardians, here is a short tutorial on how to receive notifications of your student(s) activity on Google.Classroom or Jeffco.Schoology.
The first step is to make sure your contact information, especially your phone and email, is all updated on Jeffco Connect.
Google.Classroom - teacher sends you an invitation. Click "Accept". Then, you should get a weekly summary of activity from ALL your students classes
Jeffco.Schoology - login with your Jeffco Connect username and password. You'll see your student(s) activity. Under "Settings" you can change your Notification frequency.
