Upcoming On-line Learning

Posted in News & Announcements

Hello Eastmont Families:

Next week we begin our new adventure of online teaching/learning with new content and materials.  As we have worked through these first two weeks, we have figured out a few tips that will help you as you navigate this new system.  There will also be an additional email today with the assignments for next week.  This will come by grade level and by electives.  If you don’t have a class listed on the form just cross it out and follow the classes that are on your schedule.

  1. As students are emailing teachers from Canvas or their CSDDOCS email account, it will only go to another CSDDOCS email account.This means if you try to email a teacher from your CSDDOCS account to their regular email @canyonsdistrict.org it will not go through.The best way to email a teacher is This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
  2. Monday, March 30th the Canyons School District will be sending out materials to help students with online learning.There will be videos to explain these processes to both parents and students.
  3. Tuesday, March 31st First official day of online teaching and learning from CSD.Teaching will not be live teaching, it will be recorded so that students can access it when it is convenient for their family.
  4. Teachers at Eastmont have been asked to have daily live time through Google Meet or another online platform so students can log in to ask them questions directly and they can walk them through issues they may be stuck on.The teachers have posted their live time on the home page of their CANVAS account and it will also be on the learning newsletter you will receive each Friday.Please remember that Live Time is for questions and answers not for socializing.While we appreciate hearing and seeing you, this may be the only opportunity that students have to ask direct questions to their teachers.
  5. If you cannot make live time to ask questions of a teacher, the best method for connecting with them would be email.The teachers are working both from home and some still in the school.They have all tried to have their phones forwarded, but we haven’t really put it to the test to see if they all work.
  6. If you still need a Chromebook and haven’t picked one up, we still have Chromebooks for check out between 11-1.
  7. Math Unit 8 workbooks are also in the front vestibule for pick up.Please only take 1 and make sure you have the correct grade level and language.
