Technology

Individual student logins are distributed to new students upon start of school. Continuing students use existing logins. Some sites use username "studentpcs" and generic school password (can't be posted online).  

~* IMPORTANT SUGGESTIONS *~
If you experience login or website issues:

Double-check that caps lock is off & you're inputting the username & password accurately.
Try a different browser. Chrome is recommended for Google-related services but also try Firefox, Safari, Microsoft Edge, Opera, Etc.
Try clearing the history/cache/cookies (search online for instructions for your browser).
Try accessing the site from a different device.
Make sure you have the latest updates for your devices, browsers, & apps.
Try restarting your device.
Some sites require that you disable ad blockers, allow popups, enable Flash, or have certain browser plug-ins installed (search online for instructions for your browser).
Try the "forgot password" link.
Please only contact computer lab teacher after having tried these possible solutions, and include a detailed description of the issue.
