We hope you and your family are staying well. In stressful times such as these, it’s important to take time out for your own mental health. Reading a book is a great way to escape, to take your mind off current events, and to relax after a hard day of online schooling.
Even while school is closed, we’re committed to making sure you have access to books you want to read. If we don’t have the book you want in our Sora collection, we will do our best to buy it for you! Seriously. Just use the form on our website to place a request.
We miss you all and look forward to seeing you soon.

Click Manage accounts on this device
For any accounts listed, click Remove from this device
Step 2: Sign Out of Safari
Google account credentials are stored separately for Safari and apps that use Safari to authenticate, such as Flipgrid. The steps below remove the Google credentials from Safari and, in turn, for non-Google apps that use “Log in With Google.”
Student network storage (also known as your “H: drive,” your “home directory,” or just your “number”) is erased each summer! Be sure to back up any files you wish to keep. One simple way to do this is to save all your files to your Campbellhigh.net Google drive. (Did you know you have unlimited cloud storage through this account?) You can back up your files in three easy steps:
