Monsignor Farrell High School is excited to announce our NEW 1:1 Computer Device Program, which will be in place this fall!

What Does This Mean?

EVERY student at Monsignor Farrell High School will be provided with a new Lenovo Yoga L13 ThinkPad for school use AT NO COST to them.

The device will be the same that is used by the faculty with the same operating system and will seamlessly integrate with the students' device.

We will be discontinuing the "bring your own device" program, so please do not purchase a tablet or laptop to be used in school.

Complete details about this new, exciting program will be available shortly.


 


Communications



Monsignor Farrell High School communicates with parents & students regularly via email (Constant Contact).  Please make sure to add gguastavino@msgrfarrellhs.org and dfisher@msgrfarrellhs.org to your list of email contacts to minimize the chance that the email that we send is mistaken for spam.

Students should always use their Monsignor Farrell High School email address when emailing teachers.  Email should never be sent from your personal email address.  All faculty email addresses can be found on the school website under the Faculty section.

Important information is also posted regularly on our website (you will receive your login credentials at a later date to access the students section) and social media accounts.

Math Class



It is recommended that all students use the Texas Instruments Ti-84 Plus CE  calculator for math class.

The calculator is available for purchase from numerous retailers including Staples (in-store-only), Best Buy, and Target.


Microsoft Office 365



This portal is what will be the “one-stop shop” for assignments, notes, class pages, and Farrell e-mail accounts for students. Students will not be able to access grades here, that is another platform that we use which we will set up for you in September

 
1. Type the web address (or click the link) portal.office.com into your browser.
 
2. Student email will be the first letter of his first name, full last name, and 24 (graduation year) @msgrfhs.org .
 
Example: if John Smith is a member of the Class of 2024, his email would be JSmith24@msgrfhs.org (email address is not case-sensitive).
 
3. The default password is Fresh24! and is case-sensitive (you will be prompted to change it when you first log in). Please change the password to something that you will remember.
 
4. You are now logged in and can view Microsoft Office 365. The e-mail tab is labeled “Outlook”.
 
5. Once logged in, students should e-mail Assistant Principal Fisher to confirm that they have been able to access the account. 
 
All Farrell students must use their Farrell email address to communicate with faculty.

Alternate Email Access

There is also another way to access e-mail without logging into the portal account. The link is mail.msgrfarrellhs.org .
 
Students will only have to change their password the first time that they access the account. It is highly suggested that students complete this task on their own, as they will be responsible and accountable for checking and responding to their Farrell e-mail.
