Laptop Lost & Found Procedure

When laptops go missing in the building....

1st off, try to avoid that by never leaving it behind. To avoid confusion on whose laptop is whose, place an identifiable sticker on your laptop that helps identify your laptop. Good news, if you check out books in the library, we typically have an assortment of fun stickers.

Worst case scenario, you lose your laptop in the building, your teacher will not hold it but will turn it into the library. We will scan the barcode on the back to see who it is checked out to, then we will lock up the laptop and add your name to the Laptop List that teachers have access to. So you can simple stop by the library if your laptop is lost in the building or check in with a teacher to see if your name is on the list.

If you find a laptop, please return to the library! We will have a treat for you for being so sweet and returning a laptop!!!

Laptop & WIFI Issues

Thank you all for your patience with the Laptop team as we battle new issues daily.

The current issues are perfectly good laptops getting knocked off the WIFI. This looks to be a certificate issue and instructions about that are found below on whether the student needs to fill out the form for "WIFI Issues" and to be sent down. At the beginning we were not checking for certificates and only helping laptops get School WIFI. So we are getting some laptops back that we had just sent out thinking they would be good to go. Below is a guide to help with students and their laptops.

There is another level of complication that involves laptops that were assigned before we started using "Microsoft Intune". If you receive a pop-up to sign into Microsoft In-Tune on your MNPS Device, this is suggested to do.

The most important thing for Students bring your laptops daily even if it is not working. We can't help you with your laptop if you leave it at home.

ALSO, PLEASE! Do not share devices with other students. This is directions from the upper IT people who say that this causes various issues for the assigned user when you try to log back in.

I hope to return to regular library schedule ASAP, but I can't do that until we have a larger majority of students on working MNPS devices.

Follow this guide to see if you need to get your device ready for a Swap or helped at the library.

A device is good:

  • If from the MyMNPS folder you click "Check Device certificates," and it says "The Required Certificate ARE PRESENT on this device" ... If not they keep getting knocked off WIFI seems to be the experience.
  • If the MyMNPS Folder has (Check Devices & Forget Password)
  • If it has the NWEA app in the Windows Bar on bottom left.
  • Company Portal

A device needs to be swap:

  • It has Global Protect
  • If from the MyMNPS folder you click "Check Device certificates," and it says "The Required Certificate ARE NOT PRESENT on this device"
  • Or if it doesn't load NWEA.
