Pickup/Drop of Course Materials

Pickup/Drop of Course Materials

April 3, 2020

Teachers and staff at the CAVE are ready to support student learning during the COVID-19 pandemic.  

  • Staff have contacted students regarding coursework to determine whether students prefer online learning and/or paper assignments.
  • Chromebooks are available for students to borrow to access courses online.  If students have not picked up a chromebook and would like to borrow one, they can call the CAVE and arrange pick up.  
  • Paper resources will be made available to students who have indicated to their teacher(s) that they want to use paper to support their at home learning.  The paper pick up / drop off directions are below.
  • We encourage students to scan their documents and place them in the dropbox online where possible. (See below for options.)

For everyone’s safety, please read the following pick up/drop off instructions.

  • Monday is the only day for pick up/drop off.
  • Parents are to pick up/drop off student work at the designated time.  Parents will be contacted by CAVE staff to set up a pick up/drop off time.
  • Students are not permitted in the building unless arrangements have been previously made.
  • The materials being picked up will have been placed in the bins 5 days prior to pick up to ensure there is no contamination.
  • The materials that are dropped off will remain in the drop off bin for 5 days before they are distributed to teachers for marking.

 3.  Writing on a PDF in Google Drive

Students might not have a printer, and might not have access to Microsoft Word.  But there is a way teachers can use their original Word document, without transferring it into a Google doc where it could lose formatting.  The Word document can be saved as a PDF and an extension can be used that allows the student to type and make annotations right on the PDF, save it, and submit it with no printer required.

One easy Chrome extension that allows you to type on a pdf is Kami  Is free during the pandemic; see video here

Kami is the extension of choice that is being supported by Aspen View Public Schools.

Kami has been pushed out to all devices for staff and students to use.
