Resources for Parents During Sustained Learning
On this page we have collected some useful links and resources
to help you navigate the temporary school closure due to the Coronavirus.
School Technology Resources
Student email accounts
Every student at OLG has a school email account that connects students to Clever, Google Classroom and other applications. These accounts are set up for the safety of students so that they can only communicate with teachers and fellow students (not with the outside world). Please contact your child’s teacher for account details.
We use Google Classroom for class assignments and links to online resources. You can log in to Google Classroom from Clever (see above), or you can go there directly using any web browser.
Link: classroom.google.com. Enter your student’s school email address and password (provided by the teacher).
A quick way to turn in work done on paper:
On a phone or tablet, sign in to Google Classroom with the student’s account.
Take a picture of the page.
In the Google Classroom assignment, click Add or Create.
Upload the photo from the device.
Finally, click Turn In to make sure the assignment is recorded.
Clever is an application that makes it easier for students to log in to other learning applications they use at school. Students log in with their school email account.
Link: clever.com/in/csdo. Click “Log in with Google.”
Lexia is a personalized literacy curriculum. In TK-Grade 5 it’s called “Core 5” and for middle school it’s called “Power Up.”
PowerSchool stores grades and attendance (Grades 4-8).

We are using Google Meet and Zoom to connect teachers and students and have class discussions.
Video Conferencing Etiquette
Follow the link provided by the teacher. You do not need a Zoom account to join a Zoom meeting. You may need to enter a password to join the meeting. Upon joining the meeting you will enter a virtual “waiting room.” The teacher will admit you to the meeting as soon as they are able. These measures are to ensure the privacy of our students.
