email question

Does your childs school assign them email accounts? I just found out dd's school does. 

I only found out from an automated phone message from the principal because the system was hacked and the entire student body received recipes for bombs from the anarchist cookbook, death threats and messages telling them to kill themselves. DD said she never checks her school email and hadn't seen them. The message was just to assure parents that they were on it and taking it seriously.

dd's school does.  It's her primary account and she uses it for all her school and sport related stuff.  She has a secondary account she uses for shopping, sales and stuff...

Yes but it works with other students' school accounts, not outside emails.

Yeah, I would be surprised if there was a school that didn't.

Our old school district didn't. They had something just like the parent portal to see grades, assignments, attendance, and discipline but no email. Guessing this is probably in school only.

yes for high school, but it's only internal to the school/ teachers.

My college age son has one that works wiht everything, but they also have alot of controls/ IT controls, etc. 

Neither are my kids' primary emails, we have them under our accounts as well, and they have a few others, like for google etc.

Yes the all get emails that are their name @ their school's name.

They use it for all school related communication. I think it's a regular email though. I mean, I send things to them using their school email just so I know they see it...since they are expected to be checking that one.

Oh, they have that too. It's a portal for students and parents. I'm pretty sure it looks the same for both of us, not student or parent specific.
