Mrs. Roberts Home Page

Welcome to our 2020-2021 school year. 
 
You will find all assignments and announcements for your 9th grade English course in Canvas. If you are in my class, you might already be enrolled in the course in Canvas. It can take a day or two for Power School and Canvas to sync up. So you may see that you are in my class in Power School and still not be able to see our class in Canvas. Please don't panic. We will work it out. 
 
To access Canvas, please go to https://sandiegounified.instructure.com/ and sign in using your district username and password. (This is your id# and your nine digit password that you use to login to your Chromebook.) Zoom links for our class are accessible through the button that says "Class Zoom Links."  If you are trying to access the class Zoom on a Chromebook and having trouble, these directions may help. 
 
The best way to reach me is e-mail, jroberts4@sandi.net, but you can also leave me a message by calling (or texting) to ‪(858) 754-8797. If there is a question about course content or grading, it is always best if the student sends the email or makes the call themselves. 
 
Students should join our Remind class for current updates and reminders. There is specific information about how to do that in an assignment in Canvas.
