The Lee’s Summit R-7 School District will complete a transition to Gmail for its approximately 2,600 staff members on November 17. Students have had Gmail accounts for around three years, and staff members are making the transition this fall. Email domains are being shortened from @leesummit.k12.mo.us to @lsr7.net. E-mail messages sent to the old domain name will be forwarded for some time, although the district is encouraging the public to switch to the shorter Gmail domain when emailing district staff members.
