We are doing more and more with Google Apps in the Computer Lab these days. In addition, in Middle School, students are also completing English assignments in Google Apps and may also be using Google Apps to complete their Science Lab reports. This means that your child may be logged into their Google Apps account at home to complete work.
If your child is logged into their Google Apps account and you go to Gmail to try to access your email, you will see this message:
You get this message because St. Martin’s students have Google accounts but they do not have Gmail accounts. Your child needs to sign out from their Google Apps account from:
- Google Drive OR
- Google Classroom OR
- Google.com OR
- Any document, spreadsheet, presentation, drawing, or Google Site they are working on
Once they have signed out (from one of the above – signing out from one of the above signs them out from all Google Apps), you will be able to access Gmail without seeing the error message above.
