At Lancaster Mennonite, we use a variety of services to carefully and usefully handle student, teacher, and course data and communication.
At the Locust Grove, Lancaster, New Danville, and Hershey campuses, we use an online service called Schoology (pronounced SCHOOL – uh – jee) to help teachers, parents, and students communicate regarding studies and other classroom activities, including grades.
On August 17, parents should have received at least one email from email@example.com with the subject “Schoology parent code for [your child’s name]”. If you have not received an access code by the first day of school, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, specifying your name and your child’s name. If you received the access code for the wrong child, please let us know as soon as possible.
When you register by using the above button, we suggest you uncheck the box labeled “Subscribe me to the Schoology Exchange Blog.” The world has enough blogs already, and you, no doubt, receive enough emails. Fill out the form with your name and information, not your child’s. Click Register to complete.
If you have multiple children enrolled at Lancaster Mennonite, first create your account using any of their parent access codes. Then, once you are signed into Schoology, open the menu that has your name on it, then use the Add Child button to enter your other child’s access code.
After you have signed up using your access code, you can use the parent link below or go directly to app.schoology.com. If you are asked to select the school, you may find a confusing number of schools named “Lancaster Mennonite.” You may choose any of them that have the ID number 1397429911.
If you have children at other schools (not Lancaster Mennonite) that use Schoology, you can link your parent accounts so that you can switch between your children easily from the same login.
In fact, you may find that you are unable to sign up for the first time at Lancaster Mennonite’s Schoology, because your email address is already used by a Schoology account at a different district. If that is the case, please try these steps if you want to retain access to both accounts:
- Using the Parent Access Code we sent you, create a new Schoology account, but use only the username field, not the email field.
- Sign into the Schoology account at your other school district, then link that account to the new one
- Always feel free to contact email@example.com if there are any difficulties; we’d love to figure this out with you (it may be different with each school).
Alternatively, if you no longer want Schoology access at the other school, instead of the step #2 above, you can delete the other school’s account by merging Schoology accounts.
Students, teachers, and staff, sign into Schoology at schoology.lancastermennonite.org using your Lancaster Mennonite email address and password.
Staff who are also parents: create a separate parent account, and follow these instructions to link your two accounts.
