From Dr. Melissa Williams-Scott

Spring has sprung and along with the bluebonnets and dandelions, we have seen some really incredible and innovative student projects from classrooms such as Mr. Robinson with his Virtual Field Trips and DHS’ Mrs. Anderson along with the English 2 Team helping students build their Digital Interactive Notebooks. We also know we have tested you with faux phishing emails and many of you have passed. We also continue your cyber security safety knowledge through KnowBe4’s The Inside Man Season 1 Series. Slowly we are migrating email boxes to a new version. Some of your peers have already been migrated and the great news is…A MUCH higher mailbox size limit. Watch for the email instructing as to the process and when your campus or department will be migrated.

Warning: Do Not Accidentally Show Passwords to Your Class

Please be careful when typing in your password when projecting to students. It would be unfortunate for you to also accidentally do this with the "Show Password" button in front of students, which changes encrypted passwords into readable letters, numbers, and symbols. Students could have access to computer files, Google, and even Skyward through ClassLink.
