Student Email Accounts

Do you need an e-mail account that you can access here at Foshay?
 
You can apply for a FREE LAUSD student e-mail account by downloading one of the forms below (English or Spanish).  Print it out, complete it, get your parent's signature and return it to the PDC (J38).  It is two pages.
 
You will get your new e-mail account in less than one week (hopefully)!  Once you get your user ID and password, make sure you change your password by clicking on the following link:  Change my e-mail password.  Read the notice and follow the instructions to create your new password.  If you have any questions, see Ms. Beebe (FB3).
 
LAUSD has an agreement with Google to provide mail services to our students.  You can check this e-mail from Foshay or any location with internet access.

Why can't I check my other e-mail accounts at Foshay?
Anonymous e-mail accounts provided by services like Yahoo, Google or Hotmail are not accessible at Foshay.  They have been blocked by LAUSD because the owner of these e-mail accounts cannot be verified - because you can create an account with these services without having to prove your identity. Please be aware of this when sending and receiving e-mails provided by these services!
 
What e-mail can I check at Foshay?
You can only check e-mail accounts provided by services where you have to prove your identity - usually services you have to pay for, like AOL, Earthlink or even MSN.  If you can create an e-mail account without providing proof of your identity ... you probably won't be able to use it at Foshay.  Though you don't have to pay for your LAUSD student account, you DO have to prove who you are by having a Foshay student identification number!
 
Where can I check my e-mail at Foshay?
You can check your e-mail using the computers in the Product Development Center (PDC) during nutrition or lunch or after school.  You can also use any classroom computer that is connected to the internet, providing you have the teacher's permission!
 
Where do I go to check my LAUSD student e-mail?
Go to http://mymail.lausd.net.  Click on Open MyMail.LAUSD.net.  Type in your user ID and your password and you're ready to go!  The service is provided by Google, so it looks just like Google mail.  Use this page to access your important services and content - email, calendar, news, weather and more - all in a single place.
