• HELLO!

    If you can't get into Microsoft Teams to meet with the class today, please take the following steps:

     

    STEP 1: Email me to let me know that you are having computer trouble:  riley.jodi@westada.org

     

    STEP 2:  Call the West Ada School District parent and student help desk to report your problem:  You can reach the IT Service Desk at 208-350-5300, Monday-Friday 7:30am-4:30pm.

    (Sometimes, there are a LOT of other people in line for help! You can choose to wait on the line *or* you can use the option to enter your phone number and be called back when it's your turn - listen to the menu and select the option.)

     

    STEP 3: Use the resources below to learn on your own today. 

     

    Sincerely,

    Mrs. Riley
