Problems with Zoom lagging, freezing or being kicked out during meetings
These problems usually indicate a poor Internet connection. If on a mobile device, try to move to an area with a more stable connection to see if this helps. Please realize that Zoom is a free program. Millions of students are now using Zoom nationwide. Connection issues could have nothing to do with your Internet connection and are a problem with the program itself.
Zoom sessions are being recorded. If your child misses a live session due to technical difficulties, they will be able to view the recording. Please contact the teacher for more information.
