Some important info regarding access:

In the past we have had issues with some student or teachers gaining access to the Google Meet when using their school email addresses. This is to do with schools' security settings. If this is an issue, setting up a free Gmail account will quickly solve this issue. 

Login Early: The meeting will be open 10 minutes early to help you ensure that all is working on your chosen device.
