How to login to your email the first time

As a new student, you will be assigned a new email, which is a Gmail account from Google. That Gmail will be your last name with a period and number before the domain @themetroschool.org. We often refer to this as your last name dot number. For example, if your last name is smith, then your email would be smith.20@themetroschool.org.

When you receive your new account, you will receive a default password. That default password will be MetroSchool!2 keeping in mind the importance of the capital letters and the exclamation mark.

On your assigned iPad,

  1. Tap the Settings app
