Installing Microsoft Teams

Click Here

In order to be present in the Distance Learning classroom, students will need to install the software on a device. We recommend a desktop or laptop computer as opposed to a mobile device, but either one will work. We do not recommend using the online version as it does not have the same functions and views as the downloaded version.


We have chosen this software because it is part of the Microsoft software that we already use and your login and password information are a part of our single sign-in system – you log in with the same username and password that you use for the Portal and your school email.

We will continue to use the Portal as we always have: Teachers will still enter attendance and homework through the Portal.
