Dear Parents,

Blackbaud, the software provider behind MyPriory, is requiring a change to how we log in to MyPriory. Blackbaud is requiring the use of an authentication system called Blackbaud ID (BBID) instead of their older, less secure authentication system. The original deadline was back in July but Blackbaud moved the deadline back into the school year. The new deadline is Tuesday, Sept. 27, a date that is approaching quickly. We did not want to add another wrinkle to the back-to-school routine so we decided to wait until after Labor Day to implement this change.

What does this mean to you?
After Sept. 27, you will not be able to log in with your old username and password. Instead, you will need to use the email address that we have on file for you and create a new login under the BBID system. If you do not change your login by Sept. 27, you will no longer be able to log in to MyPriory.

How and when do you make this change?
There will be a soft cutover process beginning at 3 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 19. Beginning at that time, you will be given the ability to switch over to a Blackbaud ID during the process of logging into MyPriory. We will also send another reminder as we get closer to Sept. 27.

Will students also be switching over?
Yes, everyone who uses MyPriory (currently staff, students and parents) will need to switch over to this system. Faculty have already made the change. Students will also be switching over on Monday.

Is anything else changing?
You might notice some changes to the look and feel of the login page. The current login page is a Blackbaud template, but we are going to try and adjust it to use more of Priory's branding, logos and colors. I am not certain we will have that done by this Friday, but the login page will have a more Priory-specific look in the next few weeks.

If you are having issues switching over, how can you get help?
Email and we will attempt to get back to you as soon as we can. Please note that my department is severely short-handed at the moment so it may take a little longer than normal to get back to you.
