Happy Holidays

by on December 21, 2010 at 8:16 am

Happy Holidays from the Technology Department. We hope you enjoy your time with friends and family. Also just a reminder that over the break might be a good time to clean up, organize, and back-up your files. It’s always best to be prepared just in case of a hard drive failure or other accident. There are some useful tips on this blog to try out as well as documentation on the Staff tab from our district website.

So again have a safe and Happy Holiday and we will see you in 2011!

Happy Thanksgiving!

We will have someone answering the Help Desk from 7:30-4:00 Monday and Tuesday.  Wednesday – 7:30-well, who knows when the axe comes down. We wish you a very happy, restful, ski-full…holiday.  Remember, computers like to be shut down.  Please keep the computer in the house (not in your trunk),  and they don’t get thirsty!  No water, wine or tea…  Please use care as they are up there in age!
