A couple of announcements for teachers from Ms. Hudson: Ms. Hudson asks that all teachers both today, and tomorrow to ensure off block students are covered, do a gnspes test to ensure all student’s gnspes emails are working and accessible. I sent you a link to instructions that show TEACHERS how to reset passwords. If a student is registered in your class you can reset their password. Students: this is not a convenience. You are expected to remember your passwords but if it is not working please do a reset with one of your teachers.
Also a reminder to teachers to schedule your google meet practice session with each of your classes.
