Each student is assigned a Bishop Verot webmail account. New students will receive their account and login information during iPad training. Students should log in to their webmail accounts immediately and begin getting in the habit of checking on a regular basis. We also advise students to download the Gmail app on to their smart phones. Returning students have continued access to their BV email account. Students will be sent updated information about class assignments, changes to the daily bell schedules, school announcements, dress out days, and more.
Canvas is a learning management system which revolutionizes the way teachers and students interface. Students are able to receive assignments, submit homework electronically, participate in multi-class forums, and monitor grades. Parents are encouraged to be an observer in your student’s classes in order to monitor homework and grades. Please for more information, links for Students, Staff and Parents, and to create an account.
All students must have a student ID card to be worn at all times while on campus. This picture ID is used for identification on campus, access to campus buildings, admission to sporting events, and is also used at Sage Dining, our lunch provider. New students will receive their ID card during their iPad Training Session or at orientation. Returning students must replace a lost card during the iBV class meetings (the cost is $15). Community specific lanyards will be issued by Verot.
If you lose your ID and need a replacement at any point during the school year, you need to complete the replacement form found in canvas and a new ID will be printed for you. The Dean's Office must be notified prior to 7:30 a.m. to avoid receiving a detention.
