Print this articleE-Learning Parent Help Reminder
As a reminder, our first scheduled E-Learning Day is Monday, January 21, 2019. If you were unable to attend the secondary parent informational meeting held at LPHS on Tuesday, January 8, 2019, staff at Kesling is available to answer any question you might have regarding the upcoming day. All students should know how to access all E-Learning Materials through Canvas as they have been using this platform for the last two years at Kesling Middle School and they should not need parental assistance.
This is the first time students will be at home participating in E-learning while teachers will be at school, with office hours, to address assignment questions online. Once again, please contact any staff member at Kesling Middle School at 362-7507 to answer any of your questions regarding E-learning.
