Other Common Questions/Comments:

Q: Who can I contact for additional technology troubleshooting?
A: Please reach out to your teacher or the school Instructional Technology Specialist, Jennifer Veloso (firstname.lastname@example.org).
C: I don't have a printer.
A: Much of the work assigned can be submitted digitally. In addition to downloading Teams on your personal devices (works on phones, iPads, computers), Office Lens is another great app. It takes clean, free images of documents. Best of all, it can be linked directly to your student's Office 365 account so that all scans are sent directly to their OneDrive.
