1. Below are instructions on how to add OPUS to your mobile home screen.
Launch Chrome for Android and open the website or web page you want to pin to your home screen. Tap the menu button and tap Add shortcut. You’ll be able to enter a name for the shortcut and then Chrome will add it to your home screen.
The icon will appear on your home screen like any other app shortcut or widget, so you can drag it around and put it wherever you like. Chrome for Android loads the website as a “web app” when you tap the icon, so it will get its own entry in the app switcher and won’t have any browser interface getting in the way.
Other popular Android browsers also offer this feature. For example, Firefox for Android can do this if you tap the menu button, tap the Page option, and tap Add to Home Screen.
iPhone, iPad, & iPod Touch
Launch the Safari browser on Apple’s iOS and navigate to the website or web page you want to add to your home screen. Tap the Share button on the browser’s toolbar — that’s the rectangle with an arrow pointing upward. It’s on the bar at the top of the screen on an iPad, and on the bar at the bottom of the screen on an iPhone or iPod Touch. Tap the Add to Home Screen icon in the Share menu.
You’ll be prompted to name the shortcut before tapping the Add button. The shortcut can be dragged around and placed anywhere, including in app folders — just like a normal app icon. (To create app folders on iOS, touch-and-drag an app’s icon onto another app’s icon and hold it there for a moment.) When you tap the icon, it will load the website in a normal tab inside the Safari browser app.
Other browsers, like Chrome for iOS, don’t offer this feature. Due the limitations in Apple’s iOS, only Apple’s own Safari browser is allowed to do this.
First, open the website you want to pin in Internet Explorer. Tap the More (…) button and tap Pin to Start in the menu that appears. Windows Phone 8.1 supports live tile updates from websites that have configured the feature, just as Windows 8 does.
If you have another type of smartphone or tablet, it probably has this feature, too. Just open its browser and look in its menu for an option named something like “Add to home screen” or “Pin to home screen.”
To remove a website shortcut from your device’s home screen, just long-press the shortcut and remove it like you would any other app icon.

Providing Family Background is essential in allowing the teacher to know more about your child. By entering expectations, a teacher understands what you see in your child. This establishes that the home and the school are on the same page.
Additional information helps the teacher see your complete child and strengthens the partnership with you towards your child’s success. This information is only used to help your child and does not become part of any permanent school record. Feel free to update this area at any time.

IE. A missed homework or a test score below your expectations.
