RHS TECH INFORMATION
Hello RHS Families!
Thank you to many of you for the patience and compassionate support as we roll out our distance learning program. We are here for you and we have been developing ways to support the distance learning program. To help you have success at home with instruction and technology I’ve been working with Ms. Weissman, who is our tech lead and who also provides academic support for students. Below is old and new information regarding RHS tech support.
Do you need a Chromebook for distance learning?
- If you need a loaner Chromebook complete the following steps:
- Step 1: complete the 20-21 Redwood Heights Distance Learning Technology and Wellness Survey
- Step 2: email email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org
- Did you borrow a Chromebook from RHS? You may qualify for a free Chromebook to keep from OUSD. Please fill out the following survey: http://undivided.techexchange.org
RHS Tech Support
Please visit our OUSD Redwood Heights website for tech support and other distance learning information. Under the Instruction tab at the top, go to Ms. Weissman’s Tech Corner. Ms. Weissman continually updates this page.
Also, feel free to email email@example.com at any time for tech support. Currently, she is working with families individually by email and phone to get everyone set up.
Ms. Weissman will also begin holding twice-weekly office hours starting September 1st. Her office hours will be Tuesdays 10:30-11:30 and Fridays 5-6pm.

i-Ready is our new Reading Assessment. It is replacing the Fountas and Pinnell (F&P) assessment we used to do to determine a student’s reading level. Normally it is administered in school, but this year it will be administered at home, over Zoom, with your child’s teacher. There will be a parent information session held next week that we highly recommend you attend. There will also be a short video you can watch at any time. More information to follow.
Family Central is an amazing new OUSD website full of information, resources, and support for families.
We suggest you watch a video about Seesaw or Google Classroom. Your child’s teacher will be using either Seesaw or Google Classroom as a platform for assignments, links, instruction, and more. It’s like an online classroom! Please watch one of the training videos below based on which platform your child’s teacher is using.
If you have any questions, compliments and/or questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
