No but I had a parent tell me the other day that I needed to call his son daily on his cell phone to remind him to do his school work. That’s not happening 🙄

funny

Is there a way to send auto reminds on the remind app or have the parent take the phone and set a reminder in the kids phone?

During this COVID 19 time or in general? I have had 1 student in 20 years, they had a long term medical condition. We didn’t virtual learning a few times via video chat. During this social distancing our district has used: google hangout or zoom for video chats and personalized learning videos with Loom which I personally love if you want a visual aid from your desktop in you video for students to watch.

no, i meant just a parent who has a normal student who wants me to come to their house like i'm their personal nanny curing this virus epidemic!

I have a parent calling the school daily, sending nasty grams to me daily, now starting to send nasty grams to other grade level teachers, about how the student, who plays intricate video games, and even designs some, cannot figure out how to use Google classroom. This same parent has figured out how to private message teachers in Classroom, but cannot figure out how to attach work. This parent now wants teachers to come to the house to teach the student how to use Classroom, which the student has used not only this year, but last year too, and while there, explain all the subject matter at the same time.

funny

Send YouTube videos to that parent on what she wants

The latest is the parent can't access the math teacher's videos. So probably we would be told the you tube videos wouldn't open. Ugh. But great idea!!!

Our 5 month old started daycare about 5 weeks ago. We’ve already had to keep her home for 2.5 of those 5 weeks due to catching various illnesses (croup, rsv, brinchiolitis, etc). Both my wife and I have been sick most of that time as well (gotten it from the baby). Wife is thinking we get a full time nanny for the next 4 months to help the baby build antibodies. Cost aside, is this feasible / worthwhile to go thru the effort / finding the right fit, only for 4 months?
