FAQ?

Help! My computer isn't working!

  • The first step, and in most cases the only step needed is to update your device with the above step. We have found that this resolves about 98% of all issues.

  • Close all unneeded tabs and use only what is needed for the class.  When many tabs are open it causes the device to slow.

  • If updating your device does not solve the issue please contact your teacher through Remind, email, or Google Classroom.  He or She will contact the technology department to help resolve the issue.

SchoolTool Parent Portal: Grades and assignments will be updated weekly by all teachers and available for you to see through the Parent Portal.  All teachers will have their course update by Wednesday at 3:00pm for the previous week’s assignments.  If you have any questions about the Parent Portal please contact, Mrs. Boldt at 585-584-1015.
