STEPS FOR GETTING INTO YOUR ZOOM MEETING
  1. Open zoom.us.
  2. Don't "sign in." Instead, go to "JOIN".
  3. You will be asked for "MEETING ID." Enter your meeting ID code. If you get past step 3 to step 4, your meeting ID is correct.
  4. You'll get a pop-up message that reads, "Open zoom.us." Click on that button.
  5. It might take a second, then it will ask you to "Enter Meeting Password." That's where you enter your case sensitive password if your teacher has one. If after this point, you cannot get into your meeting, your password might be incorrect. Be sure you are typing it exactly.
WHY ISN'T MY ZOOM PASSWORD WORKING? 
There are a few possibilities:
  • All Zoom passwords are case sensitive. Please make sure your caps lock isn't on, and that you're typing the password exactly.
  • You might not be completely logged off from your last Zoom session. Try restarting your computer to ensure you're completely logged off.
 
ZOOM WON'T LET ME INTO MY MEETING -- WHAT SHOULD I DO?
If you are logged into Zoom but can't get into your Zoom meeting, it might be that your teacher has already started teaching the class and hasn't checked back to see if students are waiting to get into Zoom (please see below and be sure to login early or on time to Zoom to prevent this). In this case, please call or text our Tech Hotline at (773) 937-6402 and Mrs. Davies will answer during school hours, 8am-3pm Monday-Friday. After those hours, please email her at kdavies@stbarnabasparish.org.
 
PLEASE BE SURE TO LOGIN EARLY OR ON TIME TO ZOOM
Teachers are doing their best to let students into their Zoom sessions as quickly as possible. However, as they are teaching lessons during these times, it is difficult for them to also continue to monitor who is in their Zoom waiting room once their lesson begins. If your child is having trouble getting into a Zoom, please try for 5 minutes; after that time, contact Mrs. Davies on our Tech Hotline at (773) 937-6402 for immediate assistance. Please be mindful of your child's e-Learning schedule. Thank you for your support!
 
SCHOOL-WIDE INTERNET ISSUES
In the case of a school or area-wide internet issue, we will immediately send all parents a mass email with any information we have. We will provide frequent email updates as we have them.
 
WHAT DO I DO IF I GET KICKED OUT OF MY ZOOM SESSION?
If you get kicked out of a Zoom session, be sure to refresh or even restart your device before attempting to rejoin the Zoom. Otherwise, you might not be completely logged off, and unable to rejoin.
 

INDEPENDENT INSTRUCTION/PARENT SUPPORT:

We encourage students to participate in their Zooms and live instruction independently. While we value parent input, we strongly recommend that all our e-learners wear headphones for all live instruction, as it helps them to focus and hear what’s going on in their classroom more effectively. Once students are online, connected to their classroom and understanding their daily schedule, it shouldn’t be necessary for parents to participate with them aside from occasional check-ins. Additionally, teachers put a lot of effort into planning each day’s lessons, and often don’t have the opportunity to deviate from this due to unplanned parent participation.

 

MORNING MEETINGS:

We also want to be clear that morning meetings are NOT optional for e-learners, and that attendance will be taken each day. Students are expected to be present and participating, with their video on during each class, as teachers will include them in the discussion and ask them questions as they would if they were in-person learners.

 

ASSESSMENTS/TESTS:

Students need to take all tests/assessments independently (i.e. without parent help and without their textbooks, online searches, etc). We understand that all parents want their children to do well; just as in school, though, students need to show what they know on their own so teachers have an accurate picture of what areas they are excelling in and where they may be struggling in order to best challenge and/or support them. We thank you for your support as we navigate e-learning together!

 

TECH HOTLINE & NON-EMERGENCY TECH QUESTIONS

To answer your tech and e-Learning questions more efficiently, we have added a new Tech Hotline phone number. For assistance with technology or e-learning, please call or text (773) 937-6402 and Mrs. Davies will answer during school hours, 8am-3pm Monday-Friday. After those hours, please email her at kdavies@stbarnabasparish.org.

 

If you have non-emergency questions about Google Classroom or Gmail, you may also contact Ms. Foyle via email at kfoyle@stbarnabasparish.org.

 

e-LEARNING FOR SHORT-TERM ABSENCES:

e-Learning is provided to those families who have selected it as a long-term option, and not for short-term absences. e-Learners have an adapted schedule that is slightly different than in-person learners to accommodate for routines that take place only in person. In order for e-Learning to be successful for younger students, it requires active support from parents and the school’s technology director including, but not limited to: having the appropriate schedule, e-Learning Google Code, links and an understanding of Zoom expectations. In the event a younger learner is quarantined or ill for an extended period of time, we will work with the child’s family and extend e-Learning. If a Preschool-5th grader is absent, we ask that the child’s parent connect with their teacher regarding absent work; work packets or books may be sent home/picked up or activities may be scanned to a parent at a time convenient for the teacher.

 

Due to our junior high students being 1:1 with iPads as well as being more independent and well-versed in Zoom, a junior high student may utilize e-Learning when they are ill. The junior high student’s parent must notify their child’s teacher(s) directly to make appropriate arrangements.
