Once the form is returned to the Library/Media office, you will have a Google Mail account activated overnight and ready to use the next day.
Logging in to your email account:
There is a shortcut at the top right of the West Linn High School web page or on all desktop/laptop screens at school as well.
The username is the student's full email address as provided by the school. This consists of their network username (generally, the first seven letters of last name and first initial of first name) followed by West Linn High School's Internet Domain: @wlhs.wlwv.k12.or.us.
Your password is set initially to P + (your 7 digit student ID # ). Once you
are logged in, you will want to change that password to your own personal password that you come up with..
Do not check the box that says Stay signed in, You don't want to store that password on the computers here at school where multiple students use the same computer each day, You could check that box at home where you are the only one who would use that computer.
To send an email, click the Compose button on the left hand side of the screen. You will then start typing in the name of the person to which you want to send an email to and the "best fit" option will bring up suggested email names for you..
You can send yourself attachments (like your PowerPoint or Word files) from home to school and from school to home.
Any inappropriate behavior when using your email account will result in appropriate discipline from disabling your email and network account to possible criminal action.
If you have any questions, please contact Angie Hammond in the Library Media Office.
