QUEST uses Google Classroom for most assignments that need to be turned in.
 
 
How to sign in to Google Classroom:
 
If your child has forgotten his/her Google Username and password, It should be written in the Agenda Book and follows the following pattern:

2028 (their graduation year) first initial of first name, complete last name, last two numbers of their lunch number @student.mcduffie.k12.ga.us

example: 2028jhooper84@student.mcduffie.k12.ga.us

Their password is: mcs + their lunch number.

example: mcs805001

Students may login to their accounts like you would login to a normal gmail account. Then they can access google classroom from the top right "waffle." or through http://classroom.google.com

Here is a list of additional websites they have access to at home:
