Well, it's been a great school year, but I am really looking forward to my summer vacation. I do e-Buddies at school, and I won't be able to use a computer over the summer. I love my e-Buddy Michelle, and I want to still e-mail her next year. Can I do that? Or will I have to get a new e-Buddy next year?
I am so glad to hear that you and Michelle enjoy being e-Buddies. There are a few things that you can do if you and Michelle want to stay matched. Your teacher will get something called a Roster Check. This is a form that he/she will fill out stating who will be back next year and who wants to stay matched. Your match will then be suspended for the summer and it will resume when you get back to school.
If you are not part of e-Buddies through your teacher, but can only e-mail from school, you will have to suspend your match yourself. To do this:
Go to www.ebuddies.org
Click on the e-Buddies Member Login button
Enter your User ID
Enter your Password
Click on the View Status Button
Enter the dates you won't be able to e-mail (enter your last day of school, and then your first day of school next year).
Once you complete those steps, your match will be suspended throughout the summer.
If you ever have any questions or concerns, you can e-mail us from the website and we can help make it happen. Enjoy your summer break!!!!!
