An all call has been launched instructing students with Internet capability in grades 4-12 to log on as soon as possible to their school accounts using www.gmail.com. In grades 7-12 student user names have not changed. In grades 4-6 student user names have just been set up. They are their graduation year, last name and first initial. For example, if Jane Smith is in the graduating class of 2028, her user name would be 2028smithj. Passwords have been set to a default of frsdwelcome. All students should log in as soon as possible, change their password and write the new password down somewhere in case they forget. Please do not leave the password as frsdwelcome–the password must be changed for security purposes. If students need help to reset their password, email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll provide assistance.
Students in grades K4-12 without Internet capability will receive instructional packets in the mail early this week. More information on that will be coming soon. The Google Email tutorial below will show you how to access both email and Google Classroom.
A note from the Superintendent, March 23, 2020.
The Governor has announced that the mandatory closure of all Pennsylvania school districts, including Forbes Road, will be extended at least through April 6th. I will provide more information as it becomes available.
Due to the mandatory shutdown of schools, Forbes Road School District will hold all of their School Board work sessions and voting meetings online for the duration of the school closure. Any member of the public who wishes to attend a meeting may do so by using the following link on any computer:
The next work session will be on Tuesday, March 31st at 7:00 p.m. and the next voting session will be on Monday, April 6th at 7:00 p.m. Tax payers and residents of the district who wish to make comment will have the ability to do so during the public comment portion of the agenda. According to standard School Board practice, this portion of the meeting is not designed for questions and answers; it is a time for Board Members to only listen to public comment. Public microphones will be muted during other portions of the meeting to reduce background sound/feedback.
