2018/2019 Laptop Information

Yearly Laptop Software Refresh - Grade 8 - 11 Students

Returning students (Grade 8-9-10-11)  who are not purchasing a new laptop must bring their laptop to the IT department to be updated and refreshed with the latest software, drivers and patches.  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. This can be done at any time from now until the start of the next academic year. Students are responsible for backing up all their data to Google Drive using Google Cloud Sync.

Summer Hours:
Computers can be dropped off during the following times:

  • 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
