How a student logs in to Canvas/Google
What is my student's Google Account?
Logins are different depending on what grade level your student is in for this school year. If your child was in 2nd grade last school year their email will be in the 3rd grade format.
Student accounts are created based on their legal name, not their nicknames or preferred names. Also, if a student has multiple first names or last names, only the "first" first name or last name will be used.
(hint: xxxx = lunch/student id)
4th grade to 5th grade
password: hawthornxxxx (xxxx is their student number)
6th-9th grade both campuses
Password: The default password is hawthornlunchid. If my lunchid is 1234 my password will be hawthorn1234. After students login they will be prompted to create their own password.
