On March 30, 2020 Gov. Ducey announced a Shelter-in-Place policy mandating the closure of businesses like Kat’s Artist Tree to the public. As a result, our incredible teachers are up for the challenge of teaching from home using some of the new technology we have adopted in the past two weeks.
Times like this make it more important than ever for students to continue doing the things they love
Effective April 1, all lessons and classes are online-only via ZOOM
Many of you are already familiar with Zoom as a solid choice for online meetings. Our class management software has recently adopted Zoom and it is the clear choice to allow our teachers to teach while staying safe at home.
ZOOM IS COMPLETELY FREE FOR OUR STUDENTS’ USE
We feel that times like this make it more important than ever for students to continue doing the things they love. In the past two weeks alone, we have taught over 250 online classes and found that they can be just as effective as meeting in person.
Our incredible teachers are up for the challenge
Directions for Launching Zoom
If you were already using Skype for online lessons, the process for using Zoom is slightly different. Follow the step-by-step directions below and let us know if you have any questions.
- A few minutes before class, you log in to the Parent Portal.
- On the home page of the Portal there is a blue box with your “Next Event”
- In the bottom-right corner of that box there will be an icon that looks like a square with an arrow pointing out of it. Click on that square and follow the directions to download and launch Zoom.
