Beginning in the 2015-16 school year, L-S will become a Google Apps for Education school. Every student will receive a google account during the first week of the school year. Incoming 10th, 11th, and 12th graders will receive their password during the first week of the school year.
Your Google account is for working on school work (such as essays). It is separate from your own personal email, and you are easily able to communicate with your teachers on it. The difference between your google account and your network account is that your google account can be accessed anywhere using the internet, but your network account can only be accessed from school.
