Open House, Orientation and More....

Hello Robinson Ram-ilies

The first day is almost here and we are getting excited. We know there is a lot going on and that there will be some bumps, bruises, and power outages as we start the year remotely; but we are all in this together as one big RAMILY!

🧑🏾‍💻DEVICE INFO and LOGGING IN
Do you already have a device of your own or one of ours? Use these tips to help you log in!

Tip #1 - Have your student login to our Portal first.  Rapid Identity is the hub for USD 259 educational apps for students. This is where your student will log in to access applications like Microsoft Teams and Office 365 along with other apps- 💻In an internet browser, type https:// portal.usd259.net.  To log into the Rapid Identity portal, students will use their pupil ID number and password.  Click here to see a short HOW TO Video.  

Visit here for more information on how to log in with the following devices:

 


💡Microsoft Teams
Students will log into Teams to attend classes virtually. Access Teams by clicking on the Teams tile through Rapid Identity.
Sign-in using the pupil ID in an email format (Ex. 123456@usd259.net) and password.


📧Office 365 and Student Email
Students will have their own email this year. They will access Outlook email through office.com
Students will find all of the Microsoft applications in the Microsoft O365 tile on the Rapid Identity portal page including student email, Word, PowerPoint, and Excel.  Sign-in using the pupil ID in an email format (Ex. 123456@usd259.net) and password.

If a student is giving someone their email address the format is: firstname.lastname@students.usd259.net for example john.doe@students.usd259.net.  However, they will always sign in with the pupilID@usd259.net.
