Please make sure all items are not out of date. Thank you for your support with this project!

Virus update

The IT Department at the County Office level is continuing to work diligently on the virus and getting everything contained and then eradicated. Having said that, all STES staff will be turning in their laptops for re-imaging this Thursday with hopes of getting them back soon after. Emails and other communication from the staff will be delayed until their devices are returned to them. We appreciate your patience while we move forward with this process.
