As the St. James-Assiniboia School Division (SJASD) we strive to meet the needs of all learners within our community during the suspension of in-class learning, our goal is to have our staff and students connect in the safest and most secure online platforms that are available.
SJASD students will now be able to use Microsoft Teams to connect with their teacher(s) and classmates in a safe and protected environment. Microsoft Teams is a robust platform that includes many features, including a video conferencing platform that will allow your child to meet with their teacher(s) for whole group and/or small group instruction.
For directions on how to login and install Microsoft teams, see our guide below, or our instructional video: https://tinyurl.com/teamsforfamilies
Available on most devices
While many aspects of Microsoft Teams are supported within current web browsers on laptop or desktop computers, you may wish to install the free Microsoft Teams app onto a device in your home for your student to access their Teams account. The free Microsoft Teams app can be installed on most tablets or mobile devices, but the desktop/laptop application would provide the best end-user experience for your child.
Downloading Microsoft Teams
You will be able to download Microsoft Teams for any device from the following link:
How to login to Microsoft Teams
Once you've installed Microsoft Teams onto a device in your home, your child can access their Microsoft Teams account with the following login credentials:
- Student name: <<FirstName>> <<LastName>>
- Username: <<Username>>@sjasd.ca
- Password: <<Password>>
When your child is logged into their Microsoft Teams account, they will see all scheduled meeting times listed as events on their calendar within the app. Teachers are still activating teams for students, so please check Teams regularly for updated information.
Contact us for support
Should your child have any difficulty accessing their Microsoft Teams account, please contact your child's teacher(s) and/or their school and we will provide assistance and/or support.
