Hello Families!

We hope this finds you all doing well. As a district, we will begin remote learning on Friday, April 3rd. We will be using Google Classroom, a free web service, developed by Google for schools. Google Classroom is a tool to streamline the process of sharing files between teachers and students.

Sometime today or tomorrow (4/1 or 4/2), please log in to your school email to join your AIS Google Classroom(s).

Please have your child continue with i-Ready lessons at home! These lessons are important to further support your child’s specific needs in math and reading.

Accessing i-Ready for Grades 2-6

  • Website: Go to
    • Student Username: First name initial capital with lunch number with Last name initial capital. For example - J123456M
    • Student Password: Same as above

Accessing Google Classroom:

  • In a web browser, type in “Google Classroom” and click the link.
  • Make sure you are signed into google with your WCSD account.

Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns through Google Classroom, or e-mail me at I will be checking my email messages and checking our "classroom" messages throughout the day, and respond to you promptly! I am here for you!

Please do not worry, we are all in this together. We are going to take it nice and slow as we ALL transition into online learning.

Thank you for your help with this! See you online!
