LPS Gmail

LPS Gmail is a web-based email service that provides students the ability to receive notifications from Google Docs, Synergy Communications, and email from teachers. 

PARAMETERS FOR USE: https://www.lps.org/apps/matrix/detail.cfm?app=352

Some key things to know about this email environment:

  • Every LPS student has access to an LPS Gmail account (address is studentID@class.lps.org) managed and monitored by Computing Services.
  • LPS Gmail is a DISTRICT-WIDE messaging system. It cannot accept messages from or send messages to any address beyond lps.org.
  • Functionality that is available on regular Gmail (chat, hangouts, etc) is not available in LPS Gmail.
  • LPS staff have two separate email accounts: their primary Zimbra lps.org account and this second, internal use only, class.lps.org account for communicating with students. All class.lps.org messages that are sent to staff are forwarded to the regular lps.org account, so staff do not need to check/manage separate accounts.
  • Students are encouraged to check their LPS Gmail daily.
