NEED TECH SUPPORT FOR YOUR CHROMEBOOK?
The Averill Park CSD Technology Office is here to help with Chromebook and instructional software challenges students may face in the days ahead. Please click on this link for FAQ and ways to request direct assistance:
DOES YOUR STUDENT NEED INTERNET ACCESS?
Please reach out to the Main Office by phone at 518-674-7100 if your child does not have internet access at home. Please share this information with others in the community who you believe may not receive school electronic communications. This information was also shared over the announcements at school on Monday and all present students on Monday were surveyed about their connectivity at home.
We also received this notification from a parent: Spectrum is offering free Internet access to Capital Region households that have students sent home due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The 60-day offer is only available to households that aren’t already Spectrum customers. The offer includes free WiFi access. Call 844-488-8395 to enroll. Installation fees are also being waived. The offer begins March 16.
DAILY VIDEO DURING SCHOOL CLOSURE
During the school closure Mr. Gela and I will be posting a “Morning Announcements” video each day.
Encourage your student to subscribe to the YouTube channel so they stay connected with our school community.
These Morning Announcements have a fun format with a goal of being informative and engaging.
Visit the school’s YouTube Channel here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCa6dAayrQP-IEoHIghV38Lg and then click “Subscribe.”
Be sure to tune in on Friday for our very special, first ever, VIRTUAL WARRIOR WAY ASSEMBLY!
