Student Email Accounts:
Did you know that every student in the Milton Area School District has an email address?
Students in grades 6-12 have email accounts with a working inbox that is accessible and usable. Students K-5 have an email for logging in to Office 365, however, their emails do not have a working inbox that is accessible. Simply put, students 6-12 can send and receive emails and students K-5 currently cannot send and receive emails.
Student emails follow this layout: first letter of their first name, the first seven letters of their last name, the last two numbers of their student ID, then @miltonsd.org
Example- If a student’s name is Jane Johnston and her student ID number is 54321, then her email would be email@example.com
If you encounter a student with multiple last names, one way to find their correct email is through Sapphire. Log in and click on the Learning Management System. Click on Homeroom/ Daily Attendance, you will see a list of your students. Click on the student’s name. At the top of the student’s Quick Lookup box choose the link Contacts. The student’s email will be listed below their home address.
Students 6-12 can access their email by logging in to Office 365. Students should click on the Outlook app to view their inbox.
Do you want to send an email to a whole graduating class?
To do this, open your Outlook, start a new email, and click To. This will open the Global Address List. Type “Class of” and you will find each graduating class listed. Select the class(es) and click the To -> button, then click OK.
Do you want to send an email to a specific group of students?
For grades 6-12 you can do this by creating your own email distribution list! In Outlook, at the bottom left of your screen, click the icon with two people.
Click Home, New Contact Group, name your group (Ex. Student Leadership), then click Add Members– From Address Book. Type the student’s name, then click Members ->. Repeat the process of searching their name and clicking Members -> for each student you want to add. Once you are done entering each student you will click OK. Then click Save and Close.
When you want to send an email to your created distribution list, you will start a new email and in the area beside To, start typing the name of your group. It should show up right away!
If you have any questions concerning this process, please reach out to a coach!
