ONLINE LEARNING PLATFORM
Google Classroom is an innovative learning management system for creating, hosting, and editing online learning resources. It is a secure, worry-free platform that EA has adopted as a mechanism for online learning and to facilitate communication between teachers and students.
COMMUNICATION ABOUT YOUR CHILD
Open, clear, and consistent communication is one hallmark of a healthy learning community and now more than ever our collective efforts towards this kind of communication is essential. Below are some reminders and contact information.
The teacher will communicate with families via the MyEA Portal and email. Please make sure to check your account weekly for information about what is going on in their classroom.
The Parent Portal through MyEA allows authorized parents and guardians to log in to their accounts and review all teachers’ communication. For parents to access the Parent Portal they need to log in to My EA Platform.
For academic progress or concerns: Students and parents must communicate with their teacher, and if needed with grade level administrators.
For Social-Emotional support: Students and parents must communicate with their grade level counselor.
For Behavior and disciplinary concerns: Students and parents should communicate with their grade level administrators and Dean of Students.
