Media Center email for 5th & 6th graders
Tuesday, January 10, 2012 8:30 AM

Each student in the district is provided with her or his own individual username, password and email account. The email account is primarily to be used for schoolwork, especially as your child moves through the upper grades, though a few personal emails are fine. 
 

 
We let the students know that teachers and parents/guardians have access to the account at any time. To get to the account, go to the Minneapolis Public School Homepage,  hover over the Students heading, then hover over Student Resources and from the drop down box and click on email.

The username and password are the same ones your child uses at school to log in to school computers.  
 
The email address itself is your child’s school username followed by @mpsedu.org, so it will look something like this:
 
 
The password is your child’s initials, followed by the two-digit month and day of birth.
 
For example, for student Jane Doe, born on February 7th, the password would be jd0207.
 
Internet Safety Links

In media class, we discuss Internet safety and cyberbullying, but now would be a good time to go over these important issues at home, as well.
 
Below are links to a few resources that might be valuable:
 
http://www.google.com/familysafety/ -- A great resource with links to a variety of sites that address common Internet issues – cyberbullying, sharing too much personal information, meeting strangers online and more.

http://www.netsmartz.org/InternetSafety -- A lot of good tips and advice from the well respected National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
http://www.ala.org/ala/aboutala/offices/oif/foryoungpeople/childrenparents/especiallychildren.cfm -- the American Library Association’s internet safety page, with a long list of useful links.
 
If you have any questions about your child’s school email account, feel free to email Michael Cowan, Barton’s Media Specialist, at Michael.Cowan@mpls.k12.mn.us
