Google Apps for Students
All students have a "Google Apps for Students" account with a unique username and password.
This is different from the Portal---see Portal info on right.
Classes of 2015, 2016 & 2017
Activate your account with these instructions:
1. Click (& bookmark) this address.
2. Enter your username.
last name + first initial + two digits of graduation year
For example: gagal13 = Lady Gaga graduates in 2013.
3. Enter your 8 character password.
first initial + last initial + 5-digit student # + !
If you have any questions or if your student ID isn't 5 digits to create an 8 character password, call Ms. McBain at 530.886.4440. She'll get you set up.
Class of 2014
Your instructions are the same as later graduating classes EXCEPT you may not need an exclamation point. Google now requires an 8-character minimum. Sorry for this confusion, but try activating without an exclamation point first. If unsuccessful, add the exclamation point to reach 8 characters.
If you are a new student who enrolled late this summer, please fill out an online form to request an account. We'll send you the details to activate your new Apps account. More...
Contact Ms. McBain at 530.886.4440 if you have questions.
Trouble Getting In
If you are new to our school district, see instructions above.
If you are asked to type in a "funky font" code to finish the activation, it's possible you've either mis-typed your username, entered the wrong password, or we've made an error.
Please carefully read over the above instructions once more. If you continue to have trouble, contact Ms. McBain at 530.886.4440.
Forgot Your Google Password?
If you're locked out of your account, fill out our Password Reset Form. You'll hear back from us within a day, if not sooner.
Because Google Apps allows you to share documents and websites with teachers and other students, there is no reason to share your password. So please keep your password secure by not sharing it with anyone.
But if your password gets out, we recommend you change it by clicking the Settings link within your Mail App. Then click Accounts and finally Google Account Settings.
