How to Log into Microsoft Office
All students receive a Saint Leo's Microsoft Office 365 account as part of their education. The virtual platform for Saint Leo's is Microsoft Teams. Most 5th through 8th grade classwork and learning will take place using this platform. All students should already have their school account information (email and password).
