Here are a few reminders about the technology program at school. Beginning in third grade each student is assigned a user name based on his or her first initial and last name. Then he or she will choose a password. This allows the student to have access as an individual user to the school’s network. Use of a Chapin e-mail account will be introduced during the fourth grade year. In addition, each returning student from grades four and up will be required to change his or her old password from last year to a new one. During the first week of the school, Mr. Gingo will show the students how to login to the school website and change their passwords to match their school passwords, so that they will only have to remember one.
Every family parent should review the Computer Use form with their children. Parents of younger children should summarize it as is appropriate for their child’s age. Students and Parents of students in grades 3 through 8 will need to sign and return this form, one for each child.
