How Students access Zoom

Zoom meetings at Hazen High School students should be accessed through the teacher's links posted in Canvas.

Renton School District students do not need a Zoom account to join a meeting and should not start their own Zoom meetings.

Regarding Zoom security: We have adjusted several district-wide security settings to become defaults in Zoom (e.g. requiring a “waiting room,” meeting passwords, and host-only screen-sharing).

If using a RSD Chromebook
Open the Hello ID/RSD login portal, navigate to the Canvas App, find the select your teacher/period link.  

If using a personal Chromebook
Download the Zoom app; if using a personal laptop, please go to to download the appropriate Zoom app for your device. Be sure to access Canvas through the RSD Login Portal. Click on the Canvas app, navigate to the correct teacher/period. 

Once the Zoom app is open, you should see a screen like the one below.

  • Select “Join a meeting” 
  • Enter the Meeting ID provided by your teacher 
  • Enter your full name in the “Screen Name” box.  It is important to use your real name so that your teacher knows who you are and can admit you from the “waiting room.”
  • Click “Join”
  • Enter the meeting password provided by your teacher in the box below and click join.

Please wait a few minutes for your teacher to admit you from the “waiting room.”  Until that happens, you will see a screen that looks like this:

Please wait, the meeting Host will let you in soon
