These are the platforms I have been using to reach students and families previous to the Corona Virus outbreak. We will continue to use what we know.
Gmail - Every year I establish distribution lists of parents (Sheckler) or parents and students (CMS and CHS). I use these lists to share relevant information I think you would want to know for your students. (Typically no more than once a month.) I preserve your privacy by using the BCC (blind carbon copy) feature so that I am not disemminating your addresses. If, for some reason, you have not been receiving these, please let me know. I apologize for the increase in emails, at this time.
Edgenuity Messages - CASD Cyber Academy Students, only. Access from the messages tab in your platform.
Remind App - Our CASD official messaging app. I have added all gifted students and parents by hand, so no invitation will be sent.
Google Classroom - All grades. Here are links to two parent's guides to Google Classroom. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ExFZdn4JCVEvhQjHYaz5Ui2iZfmbz0pM/view https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Iowi-gmbys. Your child username is their last name and first three letters of the first name @cattysd.org. e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org. (Sheckler students can not receive email for student security reasons, but they do have an address they can use for apps.). The password is the school ID. Contact me if your child needs their ID. I can upload all sorts of resources, here. Students can complete assignments, on this platform. Please email Mrs. Fisher if you aren't already in your class and need your class code.

Google Meet - all grades. Google Meet is a free video conferencing tool for live meetings. my Google Meet code is: fisher
