    Microsoft Teams

    Use Teams to go to your live class meetings.

    All classes will be on Microsoft Teams. If you have a school laptop, there should be a Teams app you use. If you have your own laptop, Seattle Public Schools recommends you download the Teams app. You can go to it online but there are some limited capabilities.

    For Families: How to Set Up your Source and Schoology Accounts

    Each family member has their own account to access The Source and Schoology. If you already signed up from elementary school, you do not need to sign-up again! If you did not sign-up, follow links below!
    1. Sign-up for The Source here. Note: your email address must be registered with Seattle Schools first.
    2. Once you have signed up for The Source, you can create a Schoology account. Note: you will need the Schoology Access code for each student you have at Seattle Public Schools, which you can find on The Source.
