Email and Communications
Eudora & Mailing List
❒ Building reflectors are now controlled by the school a staff member is assigned. How you join or unsubscribe from a DIstrict reflector has changed. The intranet now controls your access to a reflector.

To see your current list of Mailing Lists, Log-in to the intranet, select Preferences and Email Lists.

You can unsubscribe from there, or add a mailing list.

Your request for a new Mailing list will be processed on the server every evening.

Remember your new email address is
username@sps186.org

There's no reason to re-enter your email setup, but it is available if you want to share this email address. Remember to check your email signature and make sure the information is accurate for the new school year!

❒ Don't forget to check your signature!

School Webpages
❒ Check your teacher pages. Teachers are listed because they have intranet access to your building.
❒ Teachers control how their names are listed. They should also add a grade level.
❒ Be sure to enter the building's calendar dates in the calendar. In the elementary buildings secretaries also have access to add calendar dates. In all buildings just let us know who you'd like to add to the list to add dates. It's important that school dates get entered, so they'll appear on the district calendar. All district dates are added to each calendar automatically.
❒ Remind teachers - this is your professional website. All school related information only!

ParentLink
❒ Names have been changed to new buildings. If you are going to expand access to someone besides yourself, email Sue Ruff or call 3015, so additional accounts can be created.
❒ If you need a refresher course, contact Sue Ruff via email, or by phone 3015.
