Sonic Wall NSA 240 Questuons

I have purchased a SonicWall NSA240 and am trying to set it up, but I have a couple of questions.  At the moment, SonicWall tech support seems unreliable, so I am looking to this community for help.

1.  We are small Christian School with about 300 students.  Often times those students need to research topics the sonicwall will block.  Is there a way to easily, temporarily suspend the sonic wall filtering for a specific student?

2.  Guest accounts seem to be a possible solution.  However, I am having the sonic wall use the student active directory credentials to determine the level of filtering.  How do I trigger the log in screen so the student can use the guest account?  They have been already authenticated when they logged into the workstation?  Am I being clear?

Thank you.
