Expeditions is a virtual reality platform built for classrooms, providing guided tours of places where school buses can’t go. They are comprised of virtual reality panoramas and are led by a guide or teacher.
It’s free – but you must sign up to be in the program. Check out https://www.google.com/edu/expeditions/ for more information.
Wed Jan 13th: There will be no phone or internet access at the Operations building ONLY, from 9am and will last approximately 2 hours.
How will that impact our schools? During this time frame, you will NOT be able to contact Operations/Transportation via phone or email.
Why? The City of West Des Moines is doing emergency work on underground fiber optics along Grand Avenue. The fiber was recently damaged and is impacting city services and since we are sharing fiber in this area, our services (at Operations ONLY) will be impacted during the repair. Under normal weather conditions, this work would be done during the evenings – but with extremely low temps, the emergency work needs to be moved to the day time.
