Role of parents/students
Each parent/guardian will be able to log in to Google Classroom once they have been given a classroom code. In order to obtain these codes, a message will be sent to the parents.
- Parents will be able to view and download documents/worksheets for their children or to print out. Once parents received the code, they can access Google Classroom by entering the following web address: www.classroom.google.com.
- The Grade codes have been send via Grade sms to parents
The website will require the parent to sign in by using their email account and password.
