• Mrs. Brandell's Virtual Learning Information:

    BEST way to contact me during Virtual Learning is through REMIND: Text to 81010 and write @brandell20 as the message.  You will be connected to our class "Brandell 20-21". After joining, you can save the number that messages come from to your contacts as "Mrs Brandell."  You might receive a prompt to download the app, however, this is optional and not necessary for the system to work.  An email to lesli.brandell@dvusd.org would also work, but not as quickly.

    CANVAS Log In Instructions:

    For Virtual Learning, whether working directly with me each day or following the Deer Valley Online Academy-DVOA, ALL classes, assignments, Zoom links, and information will be in CANVAS. Students will also be able to email me directly with questions or assignment submissions through the CANVAS Inbox.

    There are 2 ways to reach CANVAS and both use normal student school usernames and passwords: 

    portal.dvusd.org  Students can also get to Dreambox through the portal
