FREE for Griffin Middle School Students

Office 365 is a collection of services that allows students to
collaborate, edit, share, and store their schoolwork. There is no software to download and students receive 1TB of storage in OneDrive.

Give Parent Consent in ParentVue Today!
It’s available for FREE to students who are currently attending a Cobb County school. Yes! This includes Griffin Middle School! However, students need parental consent. Parents can give consent for students to use Office365 at school and at home by logging into their ParentVue account. For a ParentVue account, please contact the 6th grade principal or the school Leadership Intern.

Teachers are taking the pathway to use Office 365 in the classroom
so it is important for your student to have an active account
through Cobb County School District.
