Important - Verify GaVS Google Account

If you created a Google account prior to enrolling in GaVS, your GaVS email may not be the primary email used when you communicate with me via email. When you access your GaVS Gmail account, you should view your GaVS Google email which would appear as (yourname.gavirtualschool.org). If you view your personal Gmail account in the upper right hand corner of your browser, click on the small arrow next to your personal email address and click on the Sign Out button. The image below provides a visual on the process referenced.

You will need to sign back in using your GaVS email and password. It is important that you access your GaVS Google email account because I will be communicating with you using that account . If you have questions regarding the verification process, please communicate with me.
