Student Email Change

email_iconTo make it easier for teachers to find student email addresses, student email is moving into the same organization as staff. This change means student email addresses and user names have changed.

Student email addresses and user IDs will follow this schematic: firstname+lastname+last four of student ID. A student with the name John Smith and a student ID 123456789 will have an email address and user ID of johnsmith6789@spsk12.net.

Students that have used their Suffolk Google Apps account last year will have both accounts. The original account will remain active until October 1 to allow those users the opportunity to migrate documents and emails from the original account to the new account.
