    Email and Teams for Students

    To better support remote learning, the district is enabling student email accounts and the online meeting tool Microsoft Teams. These changes will help improve communications, user experience, and security for students and teachers.

    The student email and Microsoft Teams accounts are essential to help the district to provide safe and secure tools for our students.
