Student Data & Year End Procedure
Good morning.  Due to storage space issues on school computer servers, we are going to have to return to the practice of deleting all data on student home folders at the end of each year.  If students have any data that they want to keep that is currently stored on the school servers, they must copy the files to their own devices by June 29, 2016.  The data will be deleted at that point in time.
