Beginning of School

2013 - 2014

Things to Know BEFORE Staff Meeting

Skyward -

1) DISABLE pop-up blocker upon login (click always allow)

2) Username is first initial and last name (ex. bdykstra)

3) Password is p@ssword1 (change to whatever you want)

4) Peek around and look at class rosters


BE PATIENT PLEASE - Skyward is very powerful, yet easy to use for the teacher. The office staff is still attempting to figure things out. It may take us a bit longer than usual to find solutions to issues that will arise.
