Your login to Skyward is very simple - It is the same login you use to login to the school desktops and chromebooks. This is usually:

Your password is also the same password that you use to login to the desktops and chromebooks.

The home screen will show you a list of upcoming events, and announcements from the office or your teachers. Use the toolbar on the left to navigate to the other areas of skyward.
