Students can log in to their accounts in one of two ways:

Using the Spyponders.com link at the top of this and most pages on this website (using only their username, without the @spyponders.com, for ex. fsmyte2022)

Using a Gmail login screen. (using their full username with the @spyponders.com, for example, [email protected]
