       All BrainPOP databases should now be good to go through MackinVIA! Here are some suggestions should you have any future trouble accessing databases that are working on our end:

  1. Try to access it on the web (mackinVIA.com) if the app isn't working / the app if the web isn't working.
  2. Clear your cookies.
  3. Make sure you're logged in under your iStation username and password + have RJL selected as the school (not the guest log in).

… specials classes have courses as well! Make sure your  kiddo is checking them out as well.

…. Schoology & the district are aware of the frustration of using the website. Schoology’s traffic has tremendously increased during this time as children across the country are accessing it now.Please be patient and know that your child does not need to complete work within a specific time frame. Istation, Dreambox, and Kids A-Z are great alternatives if/when Schoology is unresponsive. Also, feel free to have your child help around the house or go outside - learning happens in all forms!
