Navigating Parent Resources

Google Classroom

All students have HCA email addresses that are linked to Google Classroom. To login, open a browser and enter https://classroom.google.com. Students email addresses are firstinitiallastname@harpswellcoastalacademy.org. Passwords are set by, and known to, students. If they can’t tell you what their password is, please contact Zach Gagnon. Once logged in, you will see that faculty have set up class pages for Humanities, Science and some workshop classes. Each class page has assignments listed, with details about what specifically needs to be accomplished and links to the associated resources needed for the assignment (videos, articles, directions, etc.).

This is a resource for you to have a sense of what work is being done in our classes, and what work your student has completed. Please note, that if an assignment was turned in through google drive, it will be marked as “complete”. If an assignment is turned in on paper, it will show as “due” or “late”. If you have concerns about outstanding work, please contact your child’s Core Advisor.
