Virtual Learning Information
Image of laptop icon with icons of people on screen, says "Virtual Learning & Support"Parents and students, Simms Elementary School will engage in virtual learning for the first semester of the 2020-21 school year.  Please review the important information below as we prepare for the beginning of the year.






Infinite Campus Parent Portal

Parents, if you have not already done so, please set up an Infinite Campus parent portal account (click here for directions). Parent Portal allows you to monitor your children's attendance and grades.  Click here to go to the Parent Portal, and be sure to download the free "Campus Parent" app for iPhone and Android in their respective app stores.

We ask that all parents (new and returning) please complete Annual Student Updates prior to the first day of school. This process allows parents to update contact information and sign school forms (such as the laptop checkout form) digitally. To get started, log into Parent Portal, click "More," then click "Annual Student Updates."

Students can access their grades and attendance on Infinite Campus by logging into ClassLink and opening the Campus Student app.


Information for Families New to Rockdale County Public Schools
Rockdale County Public Schools is a one-to-one district, meaning that each child is issued a Dell 3190 laptop to complete schoolwork.  Click here for information on the laptop.  Click here for information on our one-to-one program in general.

There is a $10 Technology Fee assessed on each device, and this fee can be paid securely in Infinite Campus Parent Portal.  The Technology Fee covers the device in the event of accidental damage or theft.  If your laptop is ever stolen, please contact local police, obtain a police report, and make an appointment to submit the report to the school, and you may be issued a replacement device.

How do I get technical support during virtual learning?
We have created libraries of self-help videos to assist parents and students.
Parents, click here to access your support library.
Students, click here to access your support library. If prompted to log into your RCPS account, please do so and you should see the page.

If you continue to have issues, please follow these steps to get your issues resolved as efficiently as possible.

1. Please contact your teacher for help. Many issues tend to be more instructional than technical.

2. If you still have issues, please contact the RCPS Technology Department at helpdesk@rockdale.k12.ga.us or 770.860.4259.

For your own safety and the safety of school staff, please DO NOT report to Simms or RCPS Central Office without making an appointment first.  You must wear a mask the entire time you are in the building!


Are you experiencing hardship getting home Internet?
Please click here for information on getting low cost home Internet service.

Many local businesses offer free wi-fi to guests.  If you have health concerns, you may be able to access free wi-fi just outside such businesses.

Coming later in September, RCPS will install wi-fi extenders outside of Simms, allowing better access to the school network from the front parking lot.  Please check this page later to find out when this technology will be ready.
