Not Receiving Important Emails?
Last semester, Bishop O’Dowd High School began using a system called PowerAnnouncement to broadcast important academic e-mail announcements. A few of you recently reported not receiving these e-mails. PowerAnnouncement has informed us that some Internet service providers, including Comcast, Verizon, and Yahoo, are erroneously flagging our e-mail announcements as spam. They are working to resolve the issue, but in the meantime you can ensure that you receive all of O’Dowd’s e-mail announcements by whitelisting the following addresses:
Whitelisting tells your e- system to allow e-mails from designated addresses into your inbox. For more instructions on how to whitelist, go here: Whitelisting Instructions
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Gene Yang at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Parents: Mid-semester check of PowerSchool and Schoology
Now that we are just past the midpoint of the semester, we wanted to remind you to use PowerSchool often to check your student’s progress in his/her classes. Make sure to check grades (PowerSchool) and assignments (Schoology) frequently so that there are no surprises. Please feel free to contact teachers if/when you are concerned about your student’s progress.
In the beginning of January after the fall semester is over and grades are finalized in PowerSchool, we will send an email to let you know when the official semester grades are available for viewing and printing.
PowerSchool instructions are available at PowerSchool Instructions.
Schoology instructions are available at Schoology Instructions.
If you need technical support, contact Gavin Maeda at email@example.com
