Dear Notre Dame Parents,

As mentioned previously, we will be transitioning to online learning for 3K – 12th grade students using the Google Classroom platform on Wednesday, April 1st.  In order to best prepare for this transition, we ask that all parents log onto their child’s Google Account and Google Classroom as soon as possible so we may assist with troubleshooting if necessary.  We also intend to loan out Chromebooks to families in need of a device.  It is very important that our families communicate their technology needs to Mr. Escobedo at daniel.escobedo@ndcswf.org by tomorrow morning at the latest.  Thank you, and please take a moment to read the following instructions for logging onto Google Classroom.

For parents of 3K, 4K, 5K, 1st, 2nd, and 4th grade students –

1. Log into Gmail and click “Add new User”

2. Type your child’s Notre Dame email address (firstname.lastname@ndcswf.org)     Ex: matthew.gutgsell@ndcswf.org

3. Type your child’s password (Knights + the last two digits of the year your child graduates high school)     Ex: Knights23 (if your child graduates in 2023)

4. Login and find an email titled “Class Invitation”

5. Once you’ve opened the email, click “Join”

You now have access to your child’s Google Account and Google Classroom!

*After you login to your child’s Google Account, be sure to change his/her password ASAP!  Ideally, this password will be simple enough that students can type it independently.

For parents of 3rd, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grade students –

1. Log into your child’s Google Account or have your child show you how to login to his/her account

2. Find an email titled “Class Invitation”

3. Once you’ve opened the email, click “Join”

You now have access to your child’s Google Account and Google Classroom!

Please be sure to watch the following video with step-by-step instructions for logging into these accounts.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JqNR8916NSk  If you need help troubleshooting, please do not hesitate to reach out to Sara at sara.weyher@ndcswf.org.  Thank you!

Blessings,
