Email & Printing

Two recent areas of difficulty have been student email for grades 5-12 and printing. If you’re having trouble with either of these, we would like to hear about it:

Printing? We are changing to a different printer distribution system, so if you are having issues with your printers not showing up, please submit a Work Order.

Email? Please send contact Kim or Howard with student email issues. Over the next two months, we will be examining potential solutions and talking with students and staff members to determine our next steps. Here’s what we have planned so far:

  • Trials at DMS and DHS using alternate email applications and collaboration tools
  • Student surveys and interviews at DMS and DHS regarding how they use email
  • Staff surveys and interviews regarding email use, collaboration, and resource sharing

For the foreseeable future, we’ll continue to use ePals for email. If you are finding it difficult to communicate with students using ePals, we can offer some alternatives for the interim:

  • For sharing information: Moodle or your web page
  • For sharing files: Moodle or J drive
  • For transferring files between home & school (students): Moodle or flash drives
