I forgot my computer password, how can get it reset?

  • Any teacher can reset your computer password. Or you can stop by and see us in the media center!

...but I have homework on my phone. How can I print it out?

  • There is ALWAYS a solution! Just ask! Here are some common examples: Get the free Google Drive app and upload your homework to your school Google Drive account.
