Remember to charge up your laptop each night! If you forget your laptop, be prepared to do your work with pencil and paper. Loaners are not given to students that forget to bring them to school. Loaners are only given out when your device is having issues. Check for updates monthly. If you need help, come to the Library during Tech Desk Time! Flex, Lunch, 2:50-3:20 Don’t download any programs or extensions to your laptop that are not required for classwork. Don’t try to get around the Internet filters by installing a VPN or similar programs. This will result in displinary action. Technology can remote in your laptop any time and see your activity. Do not assume what you do on your laptop is private, even when you are at home.
