Summer Imaging over Challenge Week!

Instead of bringing in your child’s computer for reimaging in the summer, you can instead bring the computer in during Challenge Week. Your child or you may drop it off on the Friday before Challenge Week or any day during that week. We have about a one day turnaround time. See below for the fine details.

  • Drop off your laptop on Friday, April 27th after school or anytime during Challenge Week
  • Grade 11’s can drop it off and pick it up the same day
  • No cords, no cases, just the laptop. (make sure your name tag is still on it or add a piece of tape with your name)
  • We will NOT wipe your machine, but back it up just in case. Check that Google Cloud sync is really working.
