Why does my child need an email address?
From Year 4 students use the Google suite of applications. These include email as well as Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Forms. Teachers communicate with students at times via email and having their own email address allows students to communicate with others for learning related activities.
Ridgway School teachers use the Hapara Dashboard which allows them to monitor all student emails. Teachers are also able to reset passwords for their students.
Students are issued with a Ridgway email address that uses their initials and a unique school ID number. No personal information is provided to Google or any other party to issue this address. When your child leaves Ridgway, their email address will be deleted.
