In addition to these two labs, there is a full lab in the Technology Education classroom, mobile carts of laptops, computers in each classroom throughout the school building, and new this year, a cart of iPads.
When are the labs open?

Classes are scheduled with media staff. Individual students must have a pass to come to the Media Center during the school day or after 2:45 PM. Students must also sign in when using the computer labs before or after school. The computer labs are not open during SSR.
How can I get to my documents on the computers?

Once you're logged in, either double click on the application you wish to use, or click on the documents folder which holds your student work , and click on the file which you wish to open.

How do I use the copier and printer?
There is no charge for black and white printing or photocopying that is required by teachers. Before printing, you must use spell check, print preview, and go to the end of the document to ensure that there are no extra pages. Then you must ask your teacher or media staff member for permission to print, and make sure you know which printer you are using. All printing requires the permission of a teacher or staff member!
