Before using your device at school you will want to have it prepared and ready to go. Before continuing with device set-up be sure you know your Concordia Username and Concordia Email address:
CLHS Username: The last 2 of graduation year + first initial + last name (NO spaces, hyphens or apostrophes)
- Example: If Katie Madison-Storm graduates in 2024 her CLHS username would be 24kmadisonstorm
CLHS Email: CLHS email address is the CLHS Username + @clhscadets.com
- Example: Katie Madison-Storm's CLHS username is 24kmadisonstorm so her CLHS email address would be firstname.lastname@example.org
CLHS Default Password for all registration is (all lowercase): cadets1234
