Mr. Landski

Hello and welcome! I'm looking forward to working with you this year.  I can't wait to see the art that you create.  

 

Please use the Microsoft Teams login information that you were given if you picked up a district laptop, and the class schedule to know when we are meeting.  Microsoft Teams is a part of Microsoft Office.  Log-on at the beginning of every period I have with you, except for advisory.  I have posted a couple links to videos below to help you with your computer.  If they don't help you, please either call technology at (925)779-7676. or email them at support@antiochschools.net or helpdesk.antiochschools.net.  Additionally, if you need to get ahold of me, my email is kevinlandski@antiochschools.net.  Hope to see you soon!

For help joining Microsoft Teams:

Joining a Meeting in Teams

  1. Go to your MyLocker (if you’re on a district laptop then there will be an icon on your desktop). If you’re on your own device go to https://mylocker.antiochschools.net. If this is your first time logging in, use the directions for logging into MyLocker.
  2. Click on the Teams app to login to Teams. Login information will be the same that you used to login in to MyLocker. You will only have to do this for the first time logging in.  After that your password will be saved.
  3. Once in Teams, click on the calendar tab along the left side of the screen.
  4. When your calendar opens you will see the times down the left side and the dates across the top. The meetings that have been scheduled for you will be in your calendar.  At the time of the meeting just click on the purple box for that meeting.
  5. When you click on the meeting a screen will appear and you will click on “Join Microsoft Teams Meeting”.
  6. A new window will open. You will have the option to turn your video on and microphone on.  Then click “Join Now”.  If your teacher hasn’t started the meeting yet, then you will be placed in a waiting room and as soon as they start the meeting you will automatically join into the meeting.
