Tech is the Tool!

Everyone MUST Read!

Teacher logins: Do not ever log a computer in with your teacher password and let a student use the computer or laptop! This is a serious situation and could result in the loss of your job. *A way to get around this: Get a generic k-2 student log in, tape it to the computer, use this to log in.


NEVER GIVE OUT YOUR PASSWORD TO ANYONE, EVEN IF YOU HAVE A LONG TERM SUB. Long term subs should not be putting in grades and taking attendance with the teacher's log in.
