Dear SGWS Families,

Please read this entire newsletter for essential information about Distance Learning. 


Our school will be using several web-based sites and apps that are operated by third party services. In order for our students to utilize these programs and services, basic student information must be provided to the third parties. This information includes first name, last name, SGWS G-suite email address and username. Some or all of this information may be given to the following web-operators: G Suite for Education, Google Apps for Education including Calendar, Classroom, Drive, Docs, Meet, Jamboard, Keep and Tasks. For music we will be using Soundtrap and Sightreading Factory for grades 5 through 8. Teachers may also upload private videos for watching in Vimeo.  More information is available in this form below.

Please sign and return this form.  You can sign electronically and return to or print and return a copy on your student's Introductory Day.
