PHS students must change the password they use to access their folders on the server every 90 days for security reasons. When it is time for you to change your password, you'll see a message on the screen about having a certain number of grace logins left. When you see this message, you must change your password! Don't wait until you think you'll still have one grace login left, because when you run out of grace logins you will be locked out of your account. You won't be able to login to do word processing or even get on the Internet. That means you’ll have to make a trip to the IMC/ITC to get it changed by one of the staff. It always seems like those last few grace logins disappear too quickly on you, so don't postpone changing your password–do it as soon as you see the message that your password has expired!
Your parents will receive a letter in the mail that will have your new Pinnacle password in it. Save that letter and write your password down on your agenda so that you will have it with you when you're in school. Many of your teachers will require you to look at your grades during the school day, so you need to have that password in your agenda where you can access it quickly. You will receive a brand new password each year and that password cannot be changed. It is your responsibility to keep track of that password! If you lose it, you'll have to go to the IMC/ITC to ask the staff to look it up again, but they can only do that as time allows and you must have your picture ID and agenda with you, otherwise they cannot give you your password.
