We do lastnamefirstinitial for students and firstinitiallastname for adults. Grade K – 5 email accounts are internal only. Grade 6 – 8 can get external access with parental consent while grades 9 -12 start with external access, but parents can opt out and make their student’s email internal only.

Subject: Re: identifiable student email addresses?
We use full first and last names and restrict email usage to within our domain, but my students are elementary age, so it works well for us.

We decided to be practical, and went in the other direction. We define first and last names as directory info. FERPA allows directory info to be published.
Otherwise, doing anything electronic (email, blogging, commenting, etc) was becoming nearly unmanageable and impractical.
Our Directory Information and Student Work Publication doc, which supports policy, states in part:
We use our web page, newsletter and Internet tools such as wikis, video conferencing and educational networking for communication and collaboration. Student work showing the student’s full name is regularly displayed with their work.
Your child's information, photos or/and work may be viewed by the public in accordance with the criteria listed above. Your child may use on-line educational services. If you do not wish the school to release your child’s directory information (name, year in school, height, weight, picture or pictures of him or her participating in various activities), make public his or her creative work, or to use Google Apps, please contact the school.
This doc is included in student/parent handbooks.
