  • Ridgeview students should logon to Google Classroom each day at 9:30?

    Posted by:

    That's correct. Each day Ridgeview students should logon at 9:30. Teachers may be providing virtual teaching sessions and will have all materials for the day posted by then (if not earlier). Middle School students are expected to do daily work for two hours or more. Ridgeview teachers will post their lesson and activities for students by 9:15 on their content day so that students can begin their work at 9:30 a.m. each day.

  • What if we do not have internet access?

    Posted by:

    We know that most families have a smartphone with data that can be used as a temporary "hot spot" or have wireless internet to allow student iPads to login to Google Classroom. Comcast is offering 2 months free internet to new Internet Essentials customers in response to recent and anticipated emergency measures associated with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) https://www.internetessentials.com
