Student Accounts

All 6th through 12th grade students have both a DCS User account (for computer access, wifi login, permissions grouping, and more) and an Office 365 Account for email, One Drive, Teams access, etc. The student accounts are very similar to the faculty accounts for familiarity and interoperability.

Students' usernames are constructed using the following formula:

First name, first initial + Last name, first initial + last 6 digits of their lunch number.

Example: If Amy King's lunch number is 1234567, her computer/wifi username is ak234567, and her email address is

Students who need their passwords reset or have issues logging in with these accounts should submit a help ticket just as teachers or staff do. Select "Username / Password Issues" from the Help Topic drop-down list and "Email/Office365" as the Account Type.

More information on Help Tickets

You must use your full email address (including the to log in to Office365 applications including Outlook (email.)

If you have never logged in to Office365, or you have received a password reset, you must first login to Office365 in a web browser and set your own password. Only then can you use your newly set password to access your email in a mail client such as Outlook on a mobile device app.

About the Teacher

Welcome to Lake Cormorant High School. I look forward to working with and serving the parents, students, and community of LCHS. My goal is to establish a learning environment that is safe and positive for all students with whom I work with. 

I am a native New Yorker and a product of the Oneonta City School District located in upstate New York at the foothills of the Catskill Mountains. I received an Associates Degree in Criminal Justice from Monroe Community College in Rochester, NY, a Bachelors Degree in Sociology from Southern Arkansas University in Magnolia, AR, and a Master's Degree in Education from the University of Memphis. After a career in the Prison System I began my educational career in 2005 with Memphis City Schools/Shelby County Schools where I taught Honors World History, Honors US History, AP US History, and Dual Credit US History.

I am married and have 4 children: Dominic (15), Isabella (13), Anna (9) and Olivia(6). All of them play multiple sports so we stay extremely busy running from one ball field to the gymnasium and then back to the ball field. 

2019-2020 is my first school year at the SWAMP and I look forward to building valuable relationships that will not only impact the lives of my students but will also benefit my life as well.

"There is nothing you can do that will stop Mr. Rivino from loving you!"
