CHECKLIST: Getting Your Child Ready for Online Learning

Here are steps you can take to help get your child ready for a successful remote learning experience:

  • Technology & Access
    • Ensure you know your child’s myMCPS and/or Google Classroom password. Details, instructions and answers to frequently asked questions about myMCPS can be found here.
    • Practice logging in to myMCPS or Google Classroom.
    • If your child lacks a laptop or internet access at home, contact the school to make pick-up arrangements to borrow a Chromebook or MiFi (personal wireless hotspot) before April 1.
  • Get Ready to Learn
    • Review the online tutorials with your child by April 1.
    • Review the Week 1 (March 30-April 3) schedule with your child.
  • Create an Optimal Work Environment
    • Find a space in your home for your child to complete their work. It will be helpful if that space has minimal distractions.
  • Establish Routine
    • Routines are very important for children. Try to maintain a consistent schedule for your child to follow each day.  
    • Know the designated times of learning opportunities and teacher office hours, so that you can build your child’s work schedule around them.
  • Understand How to Get Help
    • Contact the school principal. If you need assistance in another language, please call ASKMCPS at 240-740-3100. 
    • Keep your child’s teachers’ contact information handy.
