MS Teams



Common concerns:

I do not have a laptop/computer at home – will I be able to engage?

Microsoft 365 is completely compatible with use on any smart phone. We suggest that all students download the following apps – Teams, OneNote, through the App Store for their phone. All content is accessible and students can also use their phone to upload homework and questions.

All can accessed through a Playstation and XBox also using the below instructions. The same method can be used to access all of the Microsoft 365 suite. We would remind all parents/guardians to monitor students if using this method to avoid distractions.
