Dear Kindergarten Families,

Please follow the directions posted on the DiChiaro homepage to access your child’s Outlook account and Microsoft Teams. 

In the event of remote learning, please use the schedule of the day below indicating when your child is going to receive Synchronous (live) instruction.  You will receive an email with an invitation to join Microsoft Teams for both whole group and or small group instruction. Your child will be live with a teacher for parts of the school day. During the day, your child will transition to an Asynchronous (not live) work period. At 8:55 am please log on to Microsoft Teams.  After you have logged on, click the icon titled “teams” on the left side toolbar.  You will see our class Team.  Click the icon.  On the next screen you will see a purple icon titled “join.”  Click that icon and you will be let into the meeting.  Please wait in the "lobby" until you are accepted into the meeting. Do not begin the meeting without the teacher or create your own meeting. Ensure your child is appropriately dressed and ready to learn.  If you cannot log on please send me a message through teams or email me at
