Welcome to South San Distance Learning! The Division of Academics wishes to provide additional resources for students and parents with the launch of our Distance Learning page. It is very important that our students continue to participate in the learning process so that they do not fall behind. Therefore, we have created a variety of learning activities that can be easily accessed from home using Seesaw, Google Classroom, and Nearpod. Additionally, we have other web-based resources that our students use throughout the school year such as Happy Numbers and Istation. While we may not physically be together, we want to assure our families that our educators are committed to delivering high-quality digital learning experiences. Please scroll down through the whole page for a full list of resources.
