DADS Virtual Campout
October 17, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 9:30 pm
The DADS organization is continuing the tradition of the annual campout, COVID style! Please read this entire message prior to registration.
This year’s event will take place in all our homes and backyards, and we’ll connect virtually. We’d like to provide a fun and safe virtual environment that every Dailard family can enjoy while we continue to promote current social distancing guidelines. This event should not be viewed as an opportunity to have friends over. Hopefully next October we’ll be back to our usual evening of BBQ and madness on campus!
- 10am – 11am Drive-thru pickup of goodie bags (s’mores, glow sticks, popcorn) and T-Shirt Sales at Dailard
- 5pm – 9pm Zoom party with self-chosen breakout rooms (read Zoom requirements below)
- 7pm – 9pm Netflix Party movie: The Secret Life of Pets 2 (read Netflix Party requirements below)
For the goodie bag pickup, please note that all kits will be assembled with extreme care by only two parents wearing gloves and masks.
Prior to 5pm it is recommended that you perform the following updates on your laptop. The DADS are hosting the movie via Netflix Party, which enables all of us to watch the same movie at the same time with a chat section so we can all stay connected. Netflix Party only works on Google Chrome and does not work on phone, tablet, or smart TV apps. This will not work on Student Computers, as it is blocked by the District.
- Update Zoom application to 5.3.0 or later. The web version and app versions prior to 5.3.0 will not support the ability to choose your breakout room! https://zoom.us/download
- Install the Netflix Party plugin to your Google Chrome browser.
- Open Google Chrome on a computer
- Visit netflixparty.com (Netflix Party is now Teleparty).
- Click “Install Netflix Party is now Teleparty” and click through the remaining prompts
- After installation is complete, click the puzzle piece to the right of the web address bar
- Next to Netflix Party is now Teleparty click the “Pin Extension” icon
- If you see a red “NP” next to the puzzle piece, you are done!
- Pitch your tent in the yard or make a fort indoors!
At 5pm, join the Zoom Party! You will see breakout rooms for different grade levels. Feel free to join one that suits your child. Pay attention to the chat section as we may have some fun things for the kids to do, like posting pictures of their fort or tent, making s’mores with your family, and just overall goofing around!
At around 7pm, the DADS will post a link to the Netflix movie on Zoom. Simply clicking the link will just start the movie, but if you click the NP icon plugin you have already installed, you will get synced up with the DADS movie timeline. Don’t worry if it is paused, we are probably just waiting for everyone to join!
Tech support will be somewhere between limited and non-existent. We have tested these steps above and believe that they work. If you have trouble, please go through them again ?.
