  • Grade 9 laptop distribution

Good morning,

This is a reminder that if you are returning to YIS for Grade 10 next year, you will be handing in your laptop tomorrow afternoon (sometime between 3:00-3:30 pm). Someone from the IT Office will come up and ask you to come down with your laptop and case. You don’t need to bring your charger. We will be handing 2 forms for you to take home and have your parents sign.

That means you have 1 more day to make sure your files are backed up and moved off of your computer. You have a few options, including copying the files from your computer to Google Drive, copying them to USB stick/hard drive, or using Backblaze. Things to think about moving include photos, videos, music, and other documents that you might have made in Microsoft Office or Adobe Flash/Photoshop.

If you need any help, please come by the IT Office today. Once you hand your laptop over to us, it becomes much more difficult for you to move data from your current computer to your new one, and as we are very busy at the end of the year, we won’t be able to offer much assistance moving data off of your old laptop.

Final note: If you are not returning to YIS next year, you can keep your laptop until the following week. You will need to turn your laptop in before your last day of school.

Thanks, (Mr. Edwards)

  • High School Student Volunteers Needed in August (Repeat)

Are you going to be here in August? If so, the new teachers and their families could use your help! We need some friendly student volunteers to help with translating and labeling the buttons on appliances (washing machines, air conditioners, zombie containment units, etc.) from Japanese to English.
