Step 2: Accessing Classrooms and Zoom
After successfully logging in to the computer, Google and the Chrome Browsser, you will need to access your student's classroom and, in some cases, the Zoom application for video communications.
Classrooms will be provided in two forms -- a teacher website (PreK-2) or a Google Classroom (grades 3-12).
► PreK-2 Students
Links to teacher websites for PreK-2 students will be listed on the homepage of the school's website. Clicking on the teacher's name will take you to their site. Starting Monday, March 23, a password will be required to access this site in an effort to maintain the privacy of students. Passwords will be provided by your school prior to Monday. Access your school homepage here:
► Grade 3-12 Students
Students in grades 3-12 will login to Google Classroom to access their teacher's class (grades 3-5) or a separate class for each subject (grades 6-12). All classrooms will be located at this link.
► Unified Arts and Student Services
Additional classes such as physical education, art, music, special education, speech, etc. will be available from the main classroom site.
Zoom is accessed by students from icons or links within the Chrome Browser once they have logged in with their @NHSAU57.org account. There's no need to go to Zoom.com.
Students using a Chromebook will find the Zoom icon at the bottom of the screen in the application "tray". You may need to move the mouse/curser to the bottom of the screen for this to reveal itself.
Students using a Windows or Mac computer will need to log into Google and the Chrome browser with their @NHSAU57.org account. They will then see an icon in the upper left of the browser titled "APPS". Clicking on this will reveal a number of applications including Zoom.
