Distance Learning For All
Cal Young Middle School and Eugene School District 4J are moving to Distance Learning during the COVID-19 Pandemic as directed by the Oregon Department of Education. This page provides a “one stop shop” for important information for students and parents. Find here resources and links, directives, process and protocols for Distance Learning opportunities and expectations. Distance Learning for All Guidance March 2020 (PDF).

- Student email access: Students will need to use a web browser for accessing their 4J email. Teachers will be communicating directly with students and parents regarding their classes, timely information, assignments, etc. All communication to students will be through their 4J email accounts. The Mail app on the student assigned iPads does not work outside of the 4J network. Students must launch Safari, Firefox, or Chrome and use their mail through the web browser. 4J Student email link is here: https://stumail.4j.lane.edu/
- Zoom Video Conferencing: Cal Young will be using the Zoom app for instruction, meetings, and office hours. The Zoom app will be on student iPads soon, the app can also be downloaded to home computers, laptops, and smartphones. Students must use their 4J email accounts when setting up their Zoom accounts. Students are expected to follow appropriate Zoom video conferencing etiquette when using this app. Video Conferencing Etiquette HERE.
- Managing Emails- Clean out your email accounts of old and unneeded emails – you need the iPad local storage space! Delete once from your INBOX , delete twice from your TRASH! Detailed instructions are HERE – STUDENT EMAIL MAINTENANCE!
