Student E-mail Access
All students have access to a district e-mail account. They also have access to Office 365 which allows students to use the latest Word, Excel, and PowerPoint programs. Students can create and edit projects online or install the programs at home. No need to have flash drives to move files from home to school!
Watch this video for information on how to get to your e-mail and Office 365.
Google Account Access for Students
Every student in the Granite School District has a Google account set up in the granitesd.org domain. Everyone has unlimited storage with their granitesd.org Google account. Below the instructions for logging into your district Google account, you’ll find links to some cheat sheets and guides to make learning Google apps easy.
Students can login to their granitesd.org Google accounts by:
* going to google.com
* sign in with their 444combo followed by @granitesd.org (where the 444 is the first four letters of their first name, then the
first 4 letters of their last name, then the first 4 digits of their student number followed by @granitesd.org) Students with a
2 or 3 letter first or last name will just use that. Example: John Reynolds 9876543 would use firstname.lastname@example.org
* they will use their district computer password
