TDSB Network advisory and password resets

Students are advised that access to Snapchat, Instagram and Netflix continues to be blocked on the TDSB network to ease congestion while the work to move all schools onto the newer faster network is completed.

All Staff and students will connect to the TDSB LAN using the “TDSB-WIFI’ portal.

  • It’s a good idea to clear the cache on your personal device(s) prior to arrival at ESA on Tuesday, September 5th.
  • Start with a fresh login sequence once you arrive at school.

With the changeover to 6 month passwords for students, there has been no central resetting of passwords this summer.

  • Having trouble logging on?
  • Can’t remember your password from June?

The Library will be open at lunchtime on Tuesday September 5th exclusively for students needing to reset their passwords.

Library Access: Tuesday September 5th and the rest of the first week of school

Access to the Library will be restricted on the first day of school, Tuesday September 5th, 2017.
