Password Manager: Make sure you’ve signed up before the holiday break.

New this year…  Password Manager! 

We tested it out with the Grade 9’s during their Orientation sessions and advertised to the rest of the school population afterwards…

As we head off for the holiday break – Password Manager is the ONLY option if you have a problem with your TDSB network password.  Don’t get shut out in the cold with respect to network access.

  • Recover and/or reset your TDSB network password on your own 365 days a year, 24/7.
  • No need to wait until you are at school and able to get into the ESA Library.
  • Create your own personal security questions – keep track of your answers in a secure location!
  • Use the ‘Forgot my Password’ or ‘Lost your password?’ options when logging into the TDSB network via AW.

Set-up your new Password Manager using this link.

  • Enter your TDSB student e-mail address.
  • Create your security questions and away you go.

Posters with QR codes and Bit.ly links are posted around the school.

  • ALL ESA students should be signed onto the Password Manager as soon as possible.

INTERNET ACCESS at ESA on Thursday October 26th

All Staff and students are advised and/or reminded that there will  be no wired or wireless network access at ESA during the school day tomorrow, Thursday October 26th.

This means

·         NO Internet access

·         NO access to Home Drives or Google Drives

·         NO access to Shared Drives

·         NO access to Academic Workspace

These restrictions are in place for the day while ESA is changed over the new Bell Wide Area Network.

·         This is a case of short term pain for long term gain.

·         After the conversion we should see significant increases in our network speed here at ESA.

PLAN accordingly as it relates to any work which may be due to teachers tomorrow…  You will not be able to access your work – or print – for the duration of the downtime.

  • We don’t know exactly what time they are taking us offline, or how long it will take, so best to prepare for the worst case scenario which is all day…

TDSB Network Access: Saturday September 23rd

ALL Staff and students – anyone who might be attempting to access the TDSB Network over the weekend – are advised that the following applications, services and systems will not be available between 7:00am and 1:00pm on Saturday September 23rd

  • All AW sites
  • ServiceIT

  • Have patience, go out and enjoy the summer weather, and try again Saturday afternoon.
