Computers Grades 6-9

Computers 6-9

computer-moniterThe MS/HS Computer Lab received a “Technology Facelift” this past summer. All new HP computers were installed with the updated version of Microsoft 2016.  Thank you Technology Department.

All students Grades 6 – 12 received a log-in (username) and created their own passwords securing their accounts.  Also, each student has a Z: Drive, which is a network location where they may save and access academic material from any FRCS computer on site.  (Grade 6 – 9 students’ set-up folders in their Z: Drive during computer class to ease access of retrieving saved information.)

School Brains student portal is up and running. During computer class (Grades 6 -9), students logged into their account ensuring access from home.  An email went home to parents regarding Computers class and the School Brains portal.
