Technology Help

For parents and students:

To get help on school related technology, please check first with the teacher who required the technology be used.  If further assistance is needed, email the webmaster for assistance.  Please understand that he is a full time teacher and may take some time to get back to you. 

If you need an office suite (word processor, spread sheet, etc.), go to and download the FREE office suite.  It can work in, save in, and convert to Microsoft formats as well as others.

If you need an operating system (like Windows or Mac OS), try the free Linux based system called Ubuntu
