    Expectation of Privacy

    At any time and without prior notice, the school district reserves the right to monitor, inspect, copy, review, and store any and all usage of the network and the Internet, as well as any information sent or received in connection with this usage.  Because files remain the property of the school district, no one should have any expectation of privacy regarding such materials.

     
    Parent Access to Student Email

    Parents may use the Parent Account Recovery link.  If the email the parent enters matches in our security system, the parent's userID and password as well as their child's userID and password are sent to the entered email address.  In this way parents may access the student's Google account.
