LAPTOP REFRESH - PREPARING LAPTOPS FOR NEXT YEAR

Each summer we ask that each students bring their laptops in to our IT department for a yearly tune up. This important check-up allows our IT team to update each laptop with the latest software, antivirus and security patches.  In order to make this process more convenient for families we will be collecting the grade 7 and 8 student laptops on June 13th, right after the exam return morning. We will spend the following the week updating all the machines and will email the families as soon as they are ready. This new step will  elevate the summer pick-up and drop off coordination and ensure that students are well prepared for the next year. Students who have already dropped off their laptop during challenge week are now updated, and are not required to turn in their laptops on June 13th.

Students who are NOT returning next year must also drop off their laptops so IT can remove the York School software. This is the agreement made when you purchased the laptop.
