Summer Computer Clean Up

This summer, the IT department will be replacing the hard drives on most of our computers. In an effort to avoid weeping and gnashing of teeth, I want to remind you that any file you have save on your computer (that includes your computer's desktop) will be LOST.

You need to save all files to either your Home drive or to Google Drive. The preferred location is Google Dive because you have unlimited storage with Google Drive.

The video below will show you how to move files from your computer to your Home drive and Google Drive.

Update Your iPad

Everyone needs to update their school-owned iPads. This can take up to 10 minutes to complete. Once you have updated your iPad, then you need to update all your apps.

Update iOS

  • Settings > General > Software Update

Update Apps

  • App Store >select Update (bottom right corner)

Google Calendar -- Reminders

Google just added reminders to Google Calendar on the web. When you open your Google Calendar on your computer, look for the option to try it.
