LPS email is moving June 30th.User names remain the same. Our new domain will be @lexingtonma.org! For staff!
What will happen!
On June 30, 2017, we'll turn off our First Class account, and staff will begin to use our Gmail accounts for all your communications. At that time, all new email messages sent to First Class (@sch.ci.lexington.ma.us) will be automatically delivered to your Gmail (@lexingtonma.org), and any new calendar events to which you're invited will appear on your Google Calendar.
Important to Know!Existing email messages, calendar events, and personal contacts in First Class will not appear in your Gmail account. However, you can migrate your email, calendar, and personal contacts from First Class to Gmail. To learn how, please click this link: https://goo.gl/2gFJRq
All active building and district conferences will become either a Google Group or a shared Google Drive folder. The Technology Department has worked with building and district leaders to ensure a smooth transition of these conferences. Every building will have a building-specific Announcements Group, Critical News Group and Staff Talk Group. These groups will be functional for building communication before June 30th. Please see this link for more specific information: https://goo.gl/LehBmu
Building and district calendars will be (re)created over the summer and ready for you to use in September.
Paycheck stubs will be sent to your Gmail account starting on June 23rd
Over the summer the District will change your staff name log-in for district accounts, such as Baseline, Aspen, etc. to your new Lexington e-mail; however, your password will remain unchanged
