Dear LWES Families,
We hope everyone is enjoying their long weekend! We are so excited to get the 2020/2021 school year started tomorrow. In an effort to make sure the start of the new school year goes smoothly, we wanted to send out this email with some helpful information. Please know that as we get started in this new virtual environment, we are here to help you through it all!
School begins on Tuesday, September 8th. All students in Grades K-5 should be ready to log into their first classroom session at 9:00 a.m. All PreK and RECC students should be ready to log into their first classroom session at 9:00 a.m. Please make sure your child does not log into their session before 8:55 a.m. This will help us keep the sessions secure and safe for your child.
We know that navigating these systems can be challenging. Please find information below regarding technology support for fall virtual instruction that includes both self-help resources and how to request technology support.
Password and Username Self-Service: Allows families to request a password reset or student’s username. New students can use this application to retrieve their account information. This application is also linked off the hcpss.me website, which also includes user directions.
