  • All,

    I hope you are all  healthy and making the best of this difficult time. Our class will be using Microsoft Teams to deliver content and collect assignments.  This is only slightly different than the online Classroom we have already been using.  Once set up, someone from the school will be contacting you with login information.

    The short of it is:

    1. Go to office.com
    2. Type in your username@slps.org
    3. Type in your password

    Username is first initial, then first seven letters of last name (or if you do not have seven you would just include your whole last name) plus four numbers associated with the username @slps.org.

    Students username for logging onto your email should look like sbeerman1111@slps.org, if unfortunately your name was Steve Beerman.

    Password is same as usual for logging into computers at school. 

    Parents, if you have questions, or just can't get logged in, please contact me at chris.martens@slps.org or 636-634-6476


    I am available from 8am -3pm every weekday.  If you email me outside of those times, I will get back to you within 24 hours.
