EMail Lists

Mountain View High School elist

This list is an open list and anyone can put themselves on the list through the school website. All meeting notices and general information will be sent out using this list. This is so that anyone who wants to join the team will have the necessary information.

  • Go to the section with the Elists for MVHS Clubs and Activities and select the second box marked "Join" next to the Robotics Club.
  • Go to the bottom of the page and select "Submit and Review"
  • If it shows that you are joining the Robotics elist, select "Submit"

  • Type in your name and the email address that you are receiving the emails at.
  • Go to line 100 (the Robotics Club) and select the second box marked "Leave"

This list is restricted to currently active team members and is used predominantly for communications during the build and competition season. Any member who attends meetings will be added to this list as well as active mentors. Parents of active members may also be put on this list upon request.

Google Groups elists

There are two Google Group email lists: team and leadership.  Members of the team are put on the team list.  Any member may be put on the leadership if they want to receive the extra team emails.  If you are not on these lists and want to be added to the Google group list or the leadership list, send the team adult leader, Wyn Schuh, a request. Your request will be evaluated and if you are an active team participant, you will be added to the list.  If you have a Google Account associated with this subscription, you can use that account to access the team Google Docs.  See the Google Account section below for more information on creating a Google Account.

If you want to be removed from this list you may do it directly through Google Groups or request removal by sending Wyn Schuh a request to be removed via email.

Google Account

The team uses Google docs and other Google tools to work collaboratively together.  If you need to, you can create a Google Account with a non Gmail email address or create an Google Account with a new Gmail email address.

Slack Account

The team uses Slack for some of its communications.  Contact Wyn Schuh to be added to 971's Slack team account.
