Email

If  one spouse or partner is receivng our emails but the other is not, one suggestion would be to set up an automatic forwarder from the account that is working to the one that is not. You can see how to do this in Gmail here, Hotmail/Outlook are here and Yahoo here

Please add our domain (chestnuthillacademy.com) and these email addresses to your safe senders list:

To add an address or domain to Safe Senders in Outlook:

  • Select Actions | Junk E-mail | Junk E-mail Options… from the menu in Outlook.
  • Go to the Safe Senders tab.
  • Click Add….
  • Type the email address or domain name you want to whitelist.
    • To add a single address, type “heinz@example.com”, for example.
    • To add a complete domain, type “example.com”, for example.
    • To make sure sub-domains are not automatically whitelisted when you add a domain, include the ‘@’ sign: “@example.com”, for example. In this case, mail from “heinz@heinz.example.com” will not be whitelisted.
  • Click OK.
  • Click OK again.

To turn an email’s sender into a contact in your Gmail address book:

  1. Open a message from the sender you want to save to your Gmail address book.
  2. Click the down arrow (More) next to the Reply button in the top right corner of the email message.
  3. Select Add ___ to Contacts list from the menu that comes up.

    • Click Gmail, for example, near the top left corner and select Contacts from the menu that appears.
  2. Start typing the contact’s name or email address in the search field.
  3. Use auto-completion to select the desired contact.
    • If Gmail does not suggest the contact for which you are looking:
      1. Hit Enter.
      2. Click the desired entry in the search results.
  4. Make all desired changes or additions to the contact’s sheet.
  5. Click Save now

 Jupiter 

Jupiter is our Learning Management System which we use to record attendance, grades, behavior incidents and report cards. Jupiter is the system we use to send out emergency alert messages in the event of school closures. To receive messages from Jupiter, you are required to add your cell number to your account and give us permission to text you. To do that, please go to https://login.jupitered.com/login/index.php and click on the ‘Parent’ tab. If you do not have a password yet, just fill in the information required (student name, school name, city and state) and click on the ‘Forgot Password’ button. When asked, it is important that you use the email address associated with your student’s account. After you have logged in to the Jupiter account, please click on Settings (1 on screenshot), check we have the correct cell number (3) and check the two boxes for text messages (4). If you opt in to Jupiter Text Messaging, the text number will display as 477-11 and you can reply STOP to opt out of text messaging.

The Computer Lab Website – (aka MrsMorlidge.com) This is the site that we use to curate sites that will be used by staff and students, both in school and for homework. The site includes links to IXL Math and Accelerated Reader which your student will get access to in the Fall. Typically the student’s username will be the first initial of their first name, plus the first 4 letters of their last name and their password will be their first name, all lowercase. e.g. smorl / sarah. There are occasional exceptions to this format. If your student does not know their credentials, please email support@chestnuthillacademy.com. You will also see links to Brain Pop, Brain Pop Jr. Encyclopedia Britannica and ABCYa! on the Computer Lab website which we have accounts for. Your CHA your student is welcome to use these resources at home. The username is chatechlab and the password is chestnut.  

Facebook CHA has its very own Facebook page which we will post to every now and then as we go through the year. If you are a Facebook user we would love to have you come and ‘like’ it! 

You Tube CHA also has its own You Tube Channel which we will upload videos to every now and then as we go through the year.

Other social media – our ‘handle’ on Instagram and Twitter is chabellevue.
