Hints for Joining & Privacy

  • We ask that you do not share these meeting links, even with the best of intentions, we want to make our meetings a safe place for our registered families.
  • You will be asked once to install a Zoom App, it is safe to do so (you may also be presented an optional link to join us through a web browser, but it has fewer features).
  • If you arrive early you can just leave up the window that says we haven’t started yet and it will automatically join you when we start.
  • You may be started with your Audio Feed “Muted” (or turned off) so you will only hear our presenter, but we do give opportunities for the children to respond to us.
  • You should start with the “Speaker View” by default which will show our Staff large on your screen and other participants in smaller screens (until they are unmuted).
  • Your screen name should be your child(ren)’s name(s) and your camera should be on for identification purposes. You can change your name by clicking on it.   For privacy, you can turn your camera off once you have been admitted to the session, however it is much less interactive without it and presenters may ask you to turn your camera on.
  • You may need to play around with your speaker volume, as some presentations may have music or noise in the background.  Ideally you should not have music playing in the background.
