    • What should I do if my computer will not turn on?

    Connect your computer to the power supply and plug in at the nearest outlet.  Make sure all connections are secure. Holding the power button down for 30 seconds may trigger a reboot.

     

    • Can my child bring his/her own laptop to school?

    No.  At this time only school-provided equipment is allowed.  This allows us to make sure students can access the software required, have a secured internet connection, and the ability for us to support them.
    The technology department cannot provide support for any personal devices.

     

    • Will my child have a laptop to use if their laptop is out for repair?

    Yes.  Spare laptops are available for students to use while their computer is being repaired. 

     

    • Can the school laptop be connected to my home network and/or printer?

    All wireless networks should work by selecting the network via the Wi-Fi selection menu on your device.
    Home printers may work, however the Technology Department cannot support and assist with any personal equipment.
     

    • Can the webcam be accessed remotely?

    No.  Although each computer does have a built-in webcam, we cannot access it or control it from a remote location at school or at home. 

     

    • How can I access my student email account?
