The countdown to Gmail is 21 days away for early adopters and just over a month for all staff to move to Gmail. The Instructional Technology Specialists have put together a great resource to support the migrations. If you want to take a preview of how Gmail is different than Lotus visit the site and click the Lotus to Gmail link. https://sites.google.com/a/lsr7.net/lsr7-gmail/home
ONE important point for all staff – make sure you can log into your Google Apps account. These accounts have been used for a couple of years by the district for Google Drive (Docs, Slides, Sheets, Sites) and they will be your point of entry when Gmail is activated as well. If you have never logged into your Google account, please review these directions and submit a help ticket if you can’t access the account.
