Posted on

Grade 9 students must change their password before trying to log into the RVS wifi network as it requires a complex password. New Passwords *MUST* contain the following: Least 8 characters long, have a capital letter, a lower case letter, a number, a symbol and cannot contain any part of your name. *Password may take up to 3 hours to sync across Wifi, PowerSchool, Google, Moodle. After changing your password, you will use your username of FirstNameMiddleInitialLastName and changed password to access Wifi, PowerSchool, Google, Moodle.

Please do the following steps to change your password.

  1. Click on the following link, https://sspr.rockyview.ab.ca/
  2. Enter in your username (FirstNameMiddleInitialLastName) and your current password. If you've never changed your password, use your PowerSchool/Student ID number (starts with 84xxxxxx) as the password.
  3. If you cannot log in with any of your passwords, please see Ms. Zagoda in room 2024 (upstairs Quad) or email szagoda@rvschools.ab.ca.
    I'll reset your password to your PowerSchool number which you can use to log in at https://sspr.rockyview.ab.ca/ then change your password to the complex password thats required.
  4. You have the option of putting in your mobile number here for password expiry reminders. (This can be skipped)
  5. Click Next to fill in at least 2 security answers with non obvious answers.  eg, if you were born in Airdrie, do not put in Airdrie as it can be easily guessed.
  6. Click Next and Finish to complete the security question setup.
