    • DON’T share your password with anybody.
      • Somebody you don’t want may get the information and get you in trouble
    • If you lose your password, DO talk with Mr. Hackl . He can make you a new one
      • Don’t share your password with friends, thinking that’s the best way to remember it

    • It’s best NOT to make a new password just before a vacation
      • When our minds are on other things (like vacations), we’ll probably forget the password anyways
        • If you do forget it, talk with Mr. Hackl; he can get you a new one
