We are aware that some students are experiencing issues with Microsoft Teams today, especially with the Assignments tab (the tab is not visible or error messages are occurring). The issue is intermittent and is not impacting all students. This is a global Microsoft issue and we are working with Microsoft to correct it as quickly as possible.
If you experience this issue, please try to log out and log back in. This may resolve the problem. Please know that the district recognizes what a challenging time this is for our students and families, and teachers will work with your student if they are having difficulty accessing assignments. Thank you for your patience as we continue to adjust to the digital learning platform.
If students still need a digital device or a repair on a checked out device, please call the school @ 588-4654 between the hours of 8:30-3:30.
