The IT Dept. is changing the way Staff and Students access the computers at GHS. Starting in fall of 2011 everyone will be required to use a username and password to logon to classroom and lab computers. 

GHS Staff:
The user name is the first part of your email address before the @gloucester.k12.ma.us, and the pass word is your email password.

GHS Students:
You will initially login using a user ID that is mad-up of "First name . last name", here is an example: bob.smith . Your password will be you student ID but it must be 8 charters long. If your current student id is only 5 charters we will be adding three 0's to the front of the ID number. Example: 00051235.

Once you have logged you will be prompted to change your password. Your new password will need to be at least 8 charters long and contain one number one, capital letter, and one nonstandard charter. Also you should not use your login ID in the password. 

Here is an example of a proper password: Kat025$e

Note, Staff will not have access to your password, so if you forget your account password your teacher will have to email support in order to have the password resest.
