Using a district provided laptop

Lynden Public Schools will be providing devices to every student who needs one to facilitate remote learning during this pandemic. This includes a laptop, laptop charger, and a laptop carrying case. Laptops will be distributed during designated distribution times and will require an LPS Device Loan Agreement signed by both the parent or guardian and the student.

Internet Connection

Besides the device you will need to make sure your home or location has internet WiFi connectivity to ensure the device can connect to the internet.

If you are having difficulty with obtaining adequate internet connectivity, please send an e-mail to your school’s tech coach.

Your student’s login is the last two numbers of their graduation year plus their last name and first letter of their first name. For instance, for a student named Jason Smith who is graduating in 2022, their login would be 22SmithJ

Your student’s password will consist of an L plus their Student ID number plus an exclamation mark!. For instance it could look like L435654332!

If you are having a problem with your login and password please contact your school’s Tech Coach.

Please note for logging into your e-mail, Canvas, Seesaw, or other sites your teachers’ direct you to, your login will be the same followed by the Lynden school domain (lynden.wednet.edu). In the example above it would be 22SmithJ@Lynden.wednet.edu
