How do I access a Google Meet?

If you need help accessing a Google Meet:

  • Make sure you are logged on to HCPSS.me with HCPSS credentials. You cannot access Google Meets from any other account.
  • Navigate to Google Meets page
  • Enter the code for your class
  • Click join

 

How do I figure out the Google Meet codes for my  classes?

All Google Meet codes are posted on Canvas for students on the Calendar for the course, and on the homepage for the course.

Directions for accessing the Google Meet are in the calendar for each course, with the direct link that students can click.

If you have trouble finding the code for a class, the formula for each class’ Google Meet code is the same:  our school’s initials (BMMS), followed by the teacher's first initial and last name, followed by the class period. For example, for Mr. Lidgard’s period 1 class, the Google Meet code would look like this:  BMMS-Lidgard-pd1.  For Ms. Carmean’s period 3 class, the Google Meet code would look like this:  BMMS-tcarmean-pd3.

 

What is the Google Meet code for a support period?

The support periods will use the same Google Meet code as the class period. For example, the period 2 support class will have the same Google Meet code as the period 2 class.

 

The schedule for the first day can be found here.

This schedule is editable, so please feel free to make a copy and use it!

    • Inappropriate/offensive/threatening comments, misrepresentation of identity, and/or disruptive participants (invited or uninvited) during Google Meet sessions will not be tolerated.
    • Sharing login information violates the confidentiality rights of other students and places them at risk of having to witness disruptive behaviors from students who are not members of the class or school community. 
    • Students who are disruptive and/or “trespass” Google Meet sessions will be immediately reported to administration and will receive appropriate consequences in accordance with the HCPSS Code of Conduct.  Consequences may result in temporary or permanent loss of technology access, which will also result in a student's inability to participate in Google Meet sessions; arrangement for receiving instruction and assignments will be established by administration communicated and arranged with parents.
