DSS Child Care Assistance

As part of the CARES ACT (Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security) funding, DSS is offering child care assistance for parents who have been deemed essential staff and required to report to word during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

In order to qualify you must be currently working at an essential business or government agency, you must need child care so you may continue to work, and you must complete a child care application.  You do not have to meet income guidelines for this time-limited program.

Census 2020

Census Day—April 1—has come and gone but don’t worry, it was NOT the deadline to respond to the 2020 Census.  It only takes a few minutes!  In fact, you can respond now at https://go.usa.gov/xdKXZ. Census Day is a reference date to determine who is counted and where in the 2020 Census. If you haven’t responded yet, paper questionnaires are on the way. When you receive yours, fill it out and mail it back. Or, you can respond online at the link above or by calling one of the toll-free numbers. Make sure you include everyone who lived in your home on April 1.

We recognize that change and uncertainty can be distressing to students and the impacts of COVID-19 can be far-reaching.

Google Classroom as a Distance Learning Tool

We will begin using Google Classroom as a Distance Learning tool on April 14. All high school coursework will be completed using this format. Each teacher has set up classes and many have invited scholars to their classes as soon as scholars login to the system. Please use the link below to retrieve individual teacher class codes and to receive any further information. We would like to stress next week is Spring Break and our teachers will not be available as the online coursework will not start until April 14th.

Google Classroom
For Students

 

How to access

To access google classroom go to classroom.google.com. Once there - login with the student’s school google account.

  • The student’s username is student’s first name middle initial last initial @williston.k12.sc.us. This information is pulled from PowerSchool.
    • For example:  susieqstudent@williston.k12.sc.us
  • The student’s password should be self-assigned however, if the student is in a younger grade the teacher may have assigned a class password.
  • If you forget your password, you can contact the people below during designated office hours (Monday-Friday 9:30-11 AM or 1-3 PM).

Home screen

Once logged in you should see the student’s classes represented by boxes on the home screen. Clicking on one of the boxes will take you to the student’s class. Clicking on the little folder at the bottom of the box will open that class’s google drive. This is where the teacher stores files for that class. Clicking the clipboard will take you to the student’s assignments.

A Class

Stream

If you click on the box to take you to the class, the page is the stream tab. This page is the chronological display of class post from the teacher. On the left you can see upcoming assignments that are due.

Classwork

The next tab located at the top of the page is classwork. From here you can see assignments and materials grouped by topics assigned by the teacher. Clicking on an assignment or material will expand it providing more information and showing any attachments. Once expanded clicking view material/assignment will take you to the assignment/material. From here you can mark the assignment as done/turn it in. Also, the private comment section allows the student to ask questions of their teacher. Clicking on the attachments will open them.

Important Updates Concerning Submitting Work, Report Cards, and Chromebooks

Submitting Distance Learning Work

As Williston-Elko High School scholars are completing their work packets this week, please refer to the teacher email listing included in the original packet. You may also find teacher contact information on teacher pages through the school website. Pictures should be taken of the completed work pages and the work log and should be submitted to each teacher via email. If your teacher has already had you working in GoogleClassroom, you may continue to submit your work there. If you are able to scan the documents, that will work fine as well. Out of an abundance of caution as we have a confirmed case of COVID-19 in the Williston community, we will not be accepting paper documents.  Please understand this is for the safety of our school faculty.

 

Report Cards

Report cards can be viewed by parents in the Parent Portal this evening beginning at 5:00. Please use the login information you used at the beginning of the school year.

 

Chromebooks

If you have reserved a Chromebook for home use through the district website and you are showing no symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, cough, or shortness of breath) please come to the school between 10:00 and 2:00 Wednesday to pick up the Chromebook. You can still reserve a Chromebook through the link on our district website through this evening. If you are exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 please do not come to the school as many staff members will be there. A parent or guardian must sign for the Chromebook. ELearning will begin April 14 when Spring Break is complete. There will be no school activity during the originally scheduled Spring Break.

The high school will post the class codes for each GoogleClassroom created by teachers to the school webpage Wednesday evening. But remember, the sites will not be used by teachers until April 14.

We hope each of you are staying healthy and we look forward to seeing you back in school as soon as possible. Have a great evening.
