Zoom Video Conferencing: Spencer Butte will be using the Zoom platform for classroom meetings, teachers office hours, and some instruction. Students must use their 4J email accounts when setting up their Zoom accounts. Students are expected to follow appropriate Zoom video conferencing etiquette when using this app. For more information about Zoom, CLICK HERE.
Student email access: Students will need to use a web browser for accessing their 4J email. Teachers will be communicating directly with students and parents regarding their classes, timely information, assignments, etc. All communication to students will be through their 4J email accounts. The Mail app on the student assigned iPads does not work outside of the 4J network. Students must launch Safari or Chrome and use their mail through the web browser. 4J Student email link is here: https://stumail.4j.lane.edu/
Distance Learning Class Links (Google Classroom): Students will need to go to classroom.google.com or 4j Google (search “4j google” in your browser) to sign into Google Classrooms. For more information about Google Classroom, CLICK HERE.
