    Dear Parents and Students:

    ATTENTION: Starting March 30 and extending through the closure, I’ll be teaching all classes through Google Classrooms.  All information about this course – announcements, schedule, content, assignments – will be available there.  Please note that you must use your school Google account to access your classes; you cannot access this class using a personal Google account.  If you need help finding or logging in to Classroom, see this support page.

    You are already enrolled in the Google Classroom for this course – no course code needed – just logon to Classrooms using your school Google account to find all of your classes. 

    Login Information:  Your username for Google Classroom is sID#@gse.cusd80.com (gse for Google Suite Education). Please contact me via email if you have never used Google Classroom before or need your Google Classrooms password reset.

    Parents:  To learn more about Google Classrooms, please see the 2020 Parent’s Guide to Google Classroom. A link to this presentation is also available on CUSD’s Distance Learning Site.

    I look forward to hearing from you in our new classroom. :) 

    Mrs. Patterson
