How to Set a Vacation Responder

For the last week my Facebook feed has been filled with posts from friends who are celebrating the last day(s) of the school year. This is a good time to set a vacation responder in your email. If you use Gmail (either consumer or G Suite for Education), watch my video below to learn how you can set an automatic vacation responder.


Applications for Education
Even though you might be on summer vacation, there are parents and students who might email you and except a response just as quickly as during the school year. Setting a polite vacation responder message can remind those parents or students that you might not be available to respond as quickly as they would like.

 If your summer vacation plans call for taking kids to the beach, NOAA has safety reminder for you. The Grip of the Rip is a short animated video about rip currents. The video covers recognizing signs of a rip current, what to do if you're caught in one, and what to do if you see someone caught in one. The video and the transcript are available here. I've also embedded the video below.

Last Days of Summer...

I have one week left before I go back to school. It's been a very busy summer for me that seemed shorter than any summer break that I've ever had. Therefore, I'm taking off for a few days to go to Bar Harbor, ME / Acadia National Park. I plan to play "tourist" within my own state. As a part of this vacation I won't be bringing my netbook. But don't worry, I have plenty of posts scheduled to go live while I'm away. I just won't be able to moderate comments until Wednesday.
