It's always wise to plan for a percentage of the student IDs to fail in the first week, and we recommend having HelpDesk on speed dial, since they can usually resolve most of the issues within a day. Students who are new to the District or who have moved schools can sometimes take longer.
Here is a link to the directions for accessing student Universal IDs and Passwords from Skyward - https://sites.google.com/a/phasd.us/skyhub/faq/faq-posts/teacherhowdoigetalistofuniversalloginidsformystudents. Mark, Jim and Kit can assist you with creating Contact Groups for your classes in your Gmail, and how to turn these into labels if you need. Just let us know what help you need. Have a great first week of school!
