Google for Education is now active

Hey, teachers! I hope you are enjoying your summer break. If you are like me, you depend on your email even when school is out. Well, good news! We now have our school switched over to the Google for Education services. The first way that this will impact you is with your email. Things you need to know:

(1) Your email address is the same as it was before, but Google requires a little more robust password than our internal server did. So now every password has at least eight characters. If your old password does not work, then please call your building principal for the new password.

(2) To access your email, open a web browser and go to gmail.com and sign in. If you have been using Gmail with a different account, click the button for "Sign in with a different account". If you've never used Gmail before, you're in for a treat. Just click on the "Sign in" button.

(3) I've turned on Global Directory, so you should soon see a populated contacts list. Just click the triangle next to "Mail" and select "Contacts"
