This Way to Forms

Forms is the Microsoft program that we will be using to take all our class questionnaires, to complete our preparedness rubric and to take our unit tests.  You can access forms by locating the section on my web page that corresponds to what you need to accomplish and there will always be a link that will take you directly to the Forms program.
Once there, you will need to log on with your Microsoft log in which is:
The first initial of your first name followed by your last name and then @commack.k12.ny.us
Remember, you must include the number with your name if you were assigned one.  A number means that someone else in the school district has exactly the same name as you....so one or both of you has been assigned a number so that the system can tell you apart.  
Then you will need to imput your network password which really isn't a password but a number.  
If you forget your password, you can ask a parent to look it up for you by going to your student profile on the Parent Portal.
If you are having difficulty with gaining access to Forms....try back at a later time, as it sometimes is not working properly.

Food, Ingredients and Individual Dietary Needs

Prior to each scheduled lab, all ingredients that will be used in the lab will be made available.  Students with food or ingredient sensitivities and allergies or special dietary needs are encouraged to use a cell phone to take pictures of the food labels prior to the lab.  Parents are asked to review the label contents and contact Miss Sigloch should you have any questions or concerns.
