The district has been securing portable wifi units for families who do not have internet access at home. For more information, e-mail HelpDesk@GenevaCSD.org.
Additionally, some of our area internet providers have stepped up to offer free internet access to students and teachers.
Empire Access: call 844-502-7089.
Charter Communications: call 1-844-488-8395. Additionally, Charter has opened wifi hotspots across their footprint for public use — a map of hotspots is available at www.spectrum.com/wifi-hotspots.
If your device is broken (for example, the screen is cracked or black, keys or the trackpad is not working), you will need to contact your child's school during school hours to exchange devices. For all other technical assistance, call or e-mail the Help Desk.
Please contact the Help Desk at HelpDesk@GenevaCSD.org or call (315) 781-0400 ext. 1010. The Help Desk is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

The district uses Gmail for student e-mail accounts. Sign in to Google with your district username and password. Then look for the Gmail link at the top right of your browser.
Alternatively, students can access Gmail through their Classlink by selecting the Gmail icon. You will be prompted for your Google username and password. It will save your credentials and you will not have to enter them again.
