ICS – International Christian School Hong Kong

    

Hello and welcome to ICS. Below is a basic overview that should help introduce some of the ICS technical applications available to you.  Before you read any further please take time now to review the terms and conditions.  A more comprehensive document can be found following this link ICS Computer Usage Policy

 

You should have been given a user name and network password by now, your login name will be your surname followed by the first letter of you first name. For example: smithj The systems administrator should provide you with an initial password.

 

Text Box: IMPORTANT: Please READ the following TERMS AND CONDITIONS. If you choose to continue to login, that means you have accepted all the terms and conditions. Failure to comply with these terms may result in temporary or permanent loss of access to these systems and/or services.

ICS’s electronic mail (e-mail):- it is designated as a primary means for distributing critical information to the school community. The school assigned email account is intended for communication between individuals and clearly identified groups of interested individuals, not for mass distribution. Mass distribution is defined as sending an email to a group of school users, who have not otherwise indicated their desire to receive messages not directly related to their school position or academic studies. Mass distribution of messages is permissible only for school business. Mass distribution of other non-school business and non-school-sponsored activities may be considered "spamming" and a violation of the conditions for use of school assigned email. 

Logon ID:- This logon id will remain valid so long as the individual is associated with ICS. The proper use of a logon id is ultimately the responsibility of the individual under whose name it has been assigned. Therefore, guard your passwords and do not share your logon id. The use of another individual's logon id without his/her expressed consent will be viewed as the stealing of ICS resources and as computer fraud. 

To change your ICS password, you must be on the ICS network, press and hold Ctrl Alt Del on your keyboard. There will be an option to change password, you will have to enter your old password (This will be the password you want to change, NOT the one you want to change too) you will be asked to enter your new password twice. Once this password has changed it will be your new Email password as well.

 

For your own security reasons your password should be something you can remember, it should have at least 6 characters and you should consider putting at least one numeric digit in your password. For example your password could be something like “Ye110wBr1ck”

 

Remember to log off your PC when you leave, especially if you are logged on to a public PC that other people may use.
