Student Log Ins & Passwords

To log in to the computers:

User:  firstname.lastname (first name DOT last name)
Password: Birthday beginning with month and omitting zeros in front of day and month. 

Examples: 
    • February 25 1997 would be 2251997
    • June 06 1997 would be 661997  
    • October 12 1997 would be 10121997
Log into Gmail (email) and Google Apps:

  1. User Name-

    1. first name.last name@student.nhcs.net

    2. Example:  Jane.Smith@student.nhcs.net

  2. Password

    1. Student # as is (i.e. without leading zeroes)

    2. You can find student #’s in Power School.  

    3. Students are encouraged to change their passwords once they log in.  The password must have at least eight characters.    

  3. If students have not returned a signed opt-in form, they will not have access to Google Apps.  They also need to opt-in to email to have an email account.  If students have not signed their AUP, they will not have Internet access.  Always check to see who has this permission before planning a lesson.  As teachers, you also have access to this information in PowerSchool.

  4. Remind students to log out of their account when using the computer or an iPad.

How Do Students Log Into Google Apps?
 
1.      User Name-
a.     first name.last name@student.nhcs.net
b.     Example:  Jane.Smith@student.nhcs.net
2.     Password
a.     Student #.
b.     You can find student #’s in Power School.  
c.      Students are encouraged to change their passwords once they log in.  The password must have at least eight characters.    
3.     If students forget their password, send an email with the student's name to

 Mr. Lupton.  Be sure to tell him which account the student is trying to access (the computer or Google).
4.     If 10th-12th grade students had information already in PowerSchool about Google, that information was retained.  Ninth grade and new students have to submit new forms.
5.     Some students have opted out of having an email account.
6.     Remind students to log out of their account when using the computer or an iPad.

 

How Do Students Log In to the Computer?
 
1.      User Name
a.     first name.last name
b.     Example: Jane.Smith
2.     Password
a.     Birthdate 
                                                              i.      NO leading zeroes-If the month or date only has one digit, then you just put that digit; January is just 1, not 01.   The year is always written out as four digits—2015.
                                                            ii.      Example:  March 4, 2004 becomes 342004
b.     Because the state is using the student # in NCEdCloud we had to switch to birthdates as passwords.  But the big news is that students CAN change their passwords and are encouraged to do so after their first log in.  Passwords can be changed after the student logs in and then presses the CTRL+ALT+DEL keys - one of the options is to change password.
3.     If a student forgets their password, email their name to Mr. Lupton.  Be sure to tell me which account the student is trying to access (the computer or Google).
