Monday Password Reset

Posted on Updated on

On Monday evening, September 28 the Berkeley Unified School district will force a password reset for all elementary students. The first time your child logs into their account after the password reset, they should input their original as usual. After entering their password, they will be required to enter a new password. 

Why is this happening?

It is always good practice to change passwords frequently – requiring a password change will help protect your child’s privacy and keep them safe, especially considering these accounts are being used more frequently during distance learning.

What should we do to prepare for the change?

  • First you can take a look at this slideshow – your child’s classroom teacher will go over this presentation during a live class session before Monday, September 28.
  • Right now, you and your child should pick a new, strong password, and write it down.  
    • Note: Strong passwords use at least 8 characters and have both upper and lower case letters. 
    • Make your password long, memorable and difficult to guess. For example pick your favorite color, animal and food together (For example, PurpleTigerPasta).

What will happen after Monday, September 28?  How do we change the password?

You can review the steps to take HERE.  

  • After this forced password reset, your child will log into their account as usual, using the old password.  
  • They will then need to enter the new password twice.  It will look like this:

  • Emergency Zoom Hotline: only available on Tuesday 9/29 & Wednesday 9/30 from 8:30am – 10:30am.  Guardians can join the Zoom Meeting below:
