Password Expiration Time Again

In December we instituted a password change . . . all staff network passwords would expire every 90 days. The next expiration time will be just before school ends.

After Memorial Day, you’ll receive a message saying that your Novell password has expired. When you receive the first expiration message, please take a minute and change your password. (Passwords you’ve used before will not work.) If you don’t change your password before the 4 grace logins, you’ll be locked out of your account.

If you’d like a reminder of what the password screens will look like, please see this file.

Guidelines for good passwords:

  • Don’t use a “dictionary” word
  • Use letters and numbers
  • Use 8 characters
  • Don’t use the names of children, spouses, pets

Again, there is nothing to do until you receive the expiration message. Student passwords will not expire.

If you run into difficulty or get locked out of your account, please call Candy at 6535 or Howard at 6536.
