Students Entering Grade 8: Laptop Software Refresh

Students transitioning from Grade 7 to Grade 8 must bring their laptop to the IT department to be updated with the latest software, patches and drivers. We are now ready to refresh laptops for next year so students are encouraged to bring their laptops to IT as soon as possible. It takes only a few hours to refresh a laptop so we encourage all students to do this while they are in school (we can provide loaner laptops) so they don’t have to come in over the summer. Students are responsible for backing up all their data to Google Drive using Google Cloud Sync.

Computers can be dropped off at the IT dept. during the following summer hours:

  • Mon - Thurs: 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM
  • Fridays: 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM
    ** IT is located on at the 1320 Yonge campus on the 3rd floor
