    You can request a password reset email to the email you've registered with us by clicking Forgot password? on the Show My Homework login page. Once you have entered your email, a password reset email will be sent to you. If you do not see the password reset email in your inbox, you may want to check your junk or spam folder. Simply follow the instructions in that email to reset your password and regain access to your account.
