Important Login Information

Links to most websites have been added to Clever so if you are able to login to Clever and your Google account you should have access to all websites the same as at school including saved passwords and bookmarks. Some websites may ask you for a class code if you have not used the site before, so if you do not have this information email your teacher for this information, or go to the school office and this should be available there. If you do not know your Google account login information contact your teacher or the school office to get this information or to have it reset.


For anyone who does not have their login information for school websites please contact your teacher to get this information.


We have put links to all apps needed on clever. To log into clever go to:

  • Click on Student Login (It has the colorful G)


  • The next part will be different for students as when they log into their chromebooks it automatically uses their google login to take them to their clever page.


  • Their login is your child’s district email and password.

    • Teachers will be sending out email addresses to those on Dojo/Bloomz/email/or phone calls.

    • Students should know their passwords as they use their passwords to log into their chromebooks. For most students it is their lunch number and first and last initials.
