Hello Microsoft Office 365

Email, Calendars, Online Documents, Messaging and MORE!

Hello Microsoft Office 365!

EM-S ISD will be transitioning to Microsoft® Office 365 very soon. In addition to the email and calendars we already use, Office 365 provides all users will with access to cloud-based storage (25 gb!), advanced web conferencing tools, and easy options for sharing files with co-workers, students, parents, and others.

Your part of the transition will be quick and easy! You will receive information from the district with a link and directions to create a new password. Once you have created this new password, you will begin accessing your email from a new site. You will also receive information on how to update your bookmarks and desktop shortcuts.

Email & Calendars

You’ll continue to use Microsoft Outlook Web App or Microsoft Outlook to view and send email from your school account, but you’ll sign in at http://outlook.com/ems-isd.net using the same user name and create a new password.

Personal Microsoft Account

This personal account will give you access to all existing SkyDrive content, Messenger, and other Microsoft services. You’ll use the same user name and password to access this account that you do today to access Live@edu.
Note that EM-S ISD no longer administers this account. As a result, we can’t reset its password for you. Use https://account.live.com/ResetPassword.aspx to reset the password for your personal account.

  • Sign in to SkyDrive using your existing Live@edu user name and password
  • Bookmark this address: SkyDrive and Messenger: http://skydrive.com .
