March 1st 2021 – Borrowing school devices

Learning from home will resume on Monday. Please see our Home Learning tab for more info. If you need to borrow a school device please fill out this form

Some of our Home Learning will be shared through the Seesaw Class app. This is different from the Seesaw Family app.

Your child’s teacher will send home a Home Learning Code. These codes are personal to each child and will allow them to log in to see activities, notices and messages from their teacher. They will also be able to share work they have completed, send photos or videos, and message the teacher directly. Anything shared by your child is only visible to the teacher.

If your home device is an iPad, tablet or phone, download the Seesaw Class app. If your home device is a Chromebook laptop or computer, visit the website app.seesaw.me
