Keep Safe Online

Since it is Summer, now is the PERFECT time to learn about online safety. **IF** you have a Powerschool account at MDS, you can join an LMS “class” that has several modules you can go through.

None of this is meant to scare you – but it is always good to be prepared, to know when things look a little fishy. That can save a TON of headaches.

Students and parents with PowerSchool Learning accounts may enroll themselves by going to https://mountdesales.learning.powerschool.com/trule/onlinesecurity/signup and entering the code

Powerschool LMS – troubles logging in, getting things done

The LMS system is being overwhelmed, which is one reason why so many are having trouble logging in. Note that this is a cloud-based product, and hundreds of thousands of students internationally have now been moved to online learning. Thus it’s not exactly surprising that the system is struggling a bit.

For now:

1) Please email your teacher at the beginning of each class that you ARE trying, and describe what is happening.

2) Keep trying every 5 minutes [not every 5 seconds!]

3) If something changes, please let tech know.

4) Keep an eye on tech.mountdesales.net for updates. We’ll be posting updates, news, and tips there as we go through this process.

5) DO NOT PANIC.
