Parent Notes


All Students 3rd grade and up will have a school administered Office 365 account.  With this they will have access to many of the MS Office products via the internet (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and more!).  This will enable the students to comminicate with thier teachers, work on assignments from home, and prevent other students from making unauthorized changes to any project files they have saved.

The format for each grade is shown below.  The password is "Owls####", relace the "#" with your students Lunch number.

Example for "John Smith" in each grade, lunch number 0001.
