Frequently Asked Questions (click here)
I'm a parent and new to Google Classroom, how do I use it?
Our wifi is too slow for all this remote learning/working, what can we do?
Consider doing a cable modem/router reboot every week or even every few days; many consumer-grade wifi routers have inherent software bugs that cause them to degrade over time and rebooting is the only way to restore them to full capacity. Be sure to reboot the Chromebook after rebooting the modem/router.
**Also, be mindful that much of the country/world is working/learning remotely which puts a high demand on many web-based platforms**
My child's Chromebook is frozen, what do I do? Try holding the power button down for 10 seconds to completely shut down the Chromebook. Then restart.
Can my child use another computer in the house instead of their Chromebook? Yes, if they are having trouble with their Chromebook, they can use any other computer with access to the internet. They just need to log in to their Google account.
We don't have wifi. Are there any public hotspots we can use? Yes, Cox has public hot spots in several locations around town. Here is the map with instructions for connecting.
My login screen is asking for a QR code, but I do not have one. What do I do?
