Your Guide to Remote SchoolNova

Dear parents and students:

Starting March 22 and until the end of the Spring semester, SchoolNova is moving to remote teaching model. We will be using two main tools, Zoom videoconferencing program (zoom.us) and Google classroom (part of g-suite, a suite of tools developed by Google).

All classes will happen at regular scheduled times over Zoom; each teacher will be hosting a zoom meeting, which the students join as described below. Students will be able to ask questions and share their work. Each family needs to make sure they have downloaded and installed zoom app (it can be installed on a computer, tablet, or a cell phone) and created an account.

All classwork and homework assignments will be posted on SN website as usual. In your Google classroom, teachers will post links to these teaching materials and other communication - including invitations to zoom meetings.

We have created an account for each current SchoolNova student; instructions on accessing the google classroom are below. All homework completed by students should be uploaded inside Google Classroom and will be graded by the teacher or TA.
