Email at Lynden School District
The Lynden School District provides a safe and reliable electronic communications system for all staff and appropriate students. You can easily share your calendar, contacts, or anything in your email with your co-workers across the hall or across the state! Your Email account also lets you send and receive messages from any computer in the world that has Web access. That makes it easy to stay in touch with your email, regardless of your location.
At the Lynden School District we use Microsoft Exchange for our primary email. All email addresses are in the format of firstname.lastname@example.org where xxxx is usually LastnameFirstInitial (i.e. for John Smith it would be SmithJ@lynden.wednet.edu)
The central email server can be accessed from anywhere. The specifics for how to access it vary with each type of device and where you are. Please use the documents below for assistance.
Reminder: A link between district email and Office365 email or Google email has not been configured yet. You must use district email for all district-related correspondence.
