Whitelist Emails from Bishop O'Dowd High School (All Email Accounts)

Based on our extensive experience with email, we recommend you use Gmail to ensure you receive all communications from the school, including our weekly newsletter with important school announcements, grade reports, and other urgent communications. Users of Gmail have reported far fewer lost or miscategorized emails than any other email service.

If you are unable to use a Gmail account, we highly recommend that you whitelist the domain in your email client of choice to increase the chances you will see our emails. If you don't see your email provider below, can find directions to do this for a wide variety of email services here.
