ClassLink Password

This school year the district is using a new program called ClassLink to manage student passwords. Any of your student's teachers can reset the password. The media center does not have access to reset or lookup passwords this year.

Once the teacher resets the student password the student may be prompted to change it. The passwords that students set must be complex and follow these requirements:

-Cannot reuse the last 3 passwords or phrases in previous passwords
-Password must be changed each year
-Minimum length is 8 characters.
-Must have upper case, lower case, numbers, and symbols.

This same password will be for district email, google drive, itslearning and classlink. Thank you as we adjust to this new password management system.

Thank you in advance for your support!


__ $5 I do not want to bake, so here is money I would have spent on those cupcakes.

__$20 I do not want to walk, swim, or run in any activity with the word “thon” in it. Here is the money that I would have spent on my child’s participation shirt for that event.
