Now tap the GMail/Google Suite icon (shown below).
Tap the “+ Add new account” choice.
In the “Email or phone” box, type your full DCS email address.

If you are OK with Google knowing what you are doing with your device, you can go to “Accounts” on your phone, “Add account,” set up a Google account with your DCS dublinschools.net credentials. (You can control information sharing, but why not leave that for when you are using your own Google account.)
