Change in e-mail system to protect student privacy

By Maddy Baxter

In order to protect the privacy of students and update the school’s software, a new e-mail system has been implemented, Director of Computer Services Dave Ruben said. All student e-mail addresses have changed except for the senior class’s (in order to avoid confusion when contacting colleges).

Instead of the [email protected] style email, they now read firstInitial.lastname.#@hwemail.com. The number differentiates students with the same first initial and last name.
