Getting Started

Overview

The HVRSD computer network is for the use of staff and students. An HVRSD network account is required to access district technology resources or to log on to a district computer. For visitors or for those wishing to use a personal technology device (laptop, mobile phone, etc.), a public wireless network is available for internet access.
 
Use of district technology resources are governed by HVRSD policies and guidelines found on the Technology Policies page. 
 

Accounts and Passwords

Never share accounts/passwords and never use someone else's account. Always use a strong password (that is, a password that is not easily guessed and that has a variety of letters, numbers, and symbols) to protect your information.

  • for remote access
  • network password is used for your district Google account
 
GOOGLE
