Team Harrigan Update- March 20, 2020
Hello Families, 


On Monday morning we embark on our remote learning journey.  Please read the following information carefully so you are prepared for Monday.


Packet Families

If you are a family that is completing the remote learning with a packet, you may still want to check your email and watch the mini morning meeting clips.  Be aware that assignments in the packet will look different from the assignments for online learning. There are laptops still available to families at school. Please call the office to get one if you need one. 


Google Classroom Families


Before Monday

  1. Have students watch the video I made so they remember how to go onto google classroom and also what to do with their assignments. 

https://youtu.be/4znXzgPoOmg


  1. I have sent a PDF of the week's activities out via email. ​Please let me know if you would like me to send another copy.   


Each Workday

  1. Log onto google classroom and look at your “to do list” 

  2. First watch my Mini Morning Meeting video with a run down of the day. 

  3. Complete the assignments for the day and “mark as done” on google classroom so I know you have finished them.

  4. Get cozy and read a book. 

  5. Have fun! 


Specialists/ Math Enrichment
At this point I am unsure of what the specialists have planned.  Please take a moment to check in to their google classrooms to check any activities they have assigned. 
Math Enrichment students will have an assignment from Mrs. Peterson on Mondays.  Please join her classroom by clicking the "Join" button under her classroom. 

Technical Support


  1. If you run into issues you can contact myself or the Student Help Desk at (603)-816-3553 or emailing studenthelpdesk@sau81.org

  2. My official office hours will be from 9am-10am and then from 2pm-3pm but please feel free to send me a message whenever you run into a problem. I will check my email through-out the day. 

  3. If you would like me to call you please include your phone number in the email and I will schedule a time to call you.  


I want to express how much I appreciate your support.  This is difficult for all of us but I am very proud to be in a school community where all teachers, parents, administrators, and school staff have pulled together to keep our children learning and healthy.  


Warmly, 


Mrs. Harrigan
