GOOGLE DRIVE & STUDENT E-MAIL
To access Google Drive for file storage, MHS students can go to https://drive.google.com

All of your work can be accessed anytime you have an internet connection so you can create it at home and open it at school, or vice versa. It is available on your mobile device as well.
