While we are in distance learning, I know that many caregivers have reached out to ask for support with tech issues that their children have faced. Our Tech Department has created a few videos that teach families how to navigate the following platforms: Google Meet for Caregivers Link Google Classroom for Caregivers Link Zoom for Caregivers Link
As we start the new school year through distance learning, the EUSD Food Service program will continue to provide Grab-and-Go meals to any child under the age of 18 regardless of his or her affiliation with EUSD.
Meal schedule is as follows: Mondays and Thursdays 10am - 12pm. 1100 47th Street, Emeryville
Please remember to wear a mask and bring a bag when you come to pick-up meals.
As a new school year begins, it was our plan to be able to provide a new device for each child during the first week of school. However, due to COVID-related supply demands and other unforeseen circumstances, we will not meet this goal. In the meantime, we are continuing to supply devices to any student, regardless of the number of students per household, who needs a laptop or iPad in order to participate in only instruction. Once, the new computers arrive, we will collect loaned devices from students in exchange for a new Chromebook.
Students who still require the use of their loaner device can continue to use it until the new devices are delivered. TK, K, and first-grade students use iPads for their classes. Grades 2 and use laptops for their instruction. Second graders who have a loaner iPad from last year can exchange it for a school laptop.
As we the case last spring, parents/guardians can submit a support request using the form located at https://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/5767268/20-21-EUSD-Home-Tech-Support-Request-v1-01 and a technology staff member will reach out to you to help resolve the issue. We anticipate that the use of the new Chromebooks will decrease the amount of home tech support required. Please go to the "Request a Device" tab.
