Student Email Accounts

As a school district we are taking steps to enhance technology and learning in the classroom. As a result, the district has created an Amherst Google email account for all students in grades 5-12. These email accounts will allow students to safely communicate with their teachers, work collaboratively with other students, and share files without using a personal email account.

For many students, this may be their first personal email account. The good news is that these email accounts are monitored and owned by the Amherst City Schools. Therefore, unacceptable usage of the account may result in disciplinary action, loss of privileges, and access to district technology. It is our goal to help students learn to utilize email as a positive and productive tool in a school setting.

Parents: Please note that students will receive their email usernames and passwords (if they haven't already). It is the same username and password they use with Pearson to check their grades on-line.

If you have any questions, please call or email your child's teacher or Bill Miller - We are here to help.

Homework Lab
Homework Lab is a supervised setting that offers students an opportunity to complete their homework, while receiving assistance from a certified teacher. The lab meets each week, Monday through Thursday from 2:50-3:50 p.m. In order to cover the expenses for this lab, there is a monthly fee that is determined by the number of actual lab days during each month - the fee breaks down to $3.00 per day. The month of December will have 12 lab days, thus the cost for the month will be $36.00. Homework Lab starts on December 1st. Payments and forms are due by Tuesday, November 25th.
