 2020 Parents Guide to Google Classroom

Parents, please make sure that your child knows how to log in to their Google account with their Red Deer Catholic username and password. If not, please email your homeroom teacher for support.

Teachers will be sharing the Google Meet link in their Google Classrooms for video conferencing so that students will be able to join in on the sessions to their student rdcrs email accounts.

Join a class as a student

To use Classroom, you need to sign in on your computer or mobile device and then join classes. Then, you can get work from your teacher and communicate with your classmates. When you join a class on one device, you're enrolled in that class on all devices.

How to join a class

You have 2 ways to join a class:

  • Join a class with a class code—If your teacher gives you a class code, use this code to add yourself to the class. Your teacher might give you the code while you’re in class or email it to you.
  • Accept an invitation from your teacher—If your teacher sends you an invitation, you’ll see Join on the class card on your Classroom homepage.

Forgot or lost the class code? Code won't work?

If you deleted, lost, or forgot the class code before joining a class, ask your teacher to resend the code or set a new one. If the code isn’t working, ask your teacher for help.

Note: You only use the class code once to join the class. You are then enrolled in the class, and you don't need to re-use the code again.

Join with a Chromebook, Android, iPhone & iPad

You must be signed in to Classroom before you can join a class. Unsure if you’re signed in? Learn more about how to sign in to Classroom.
