Guidelines and Important Information
eLearning Guidelines (3/30/20)
Please see the letter for eLearning guidelines from Ms. Ward
Teachers will be providing your students and families information regarding e-learning procedures and assignments. All students have been given their i-Ready login usernames and passwords to take home with them. Students can access i-Ready via the web (https://login.i-ready.com/) or via the app to download through Apple’s App Store or Google’s Play Store.
Students in grades K-5 have only accessed i-Ready via the app on our school iPads. Please provide guidance if you have them work on the computer. Students in grades K-1 must click on the blue “K-1 Card Login” button. All other grades login normally via the portal. Grades 6-8 have used both Macs and iPads to access the program.
Teachers in grades 4 through 8 will be communicating via Google Classroom.
There are additional links that your teachers may use on the St. Raymond Quick Links page.
