No gaming in the library except if given permission by the librarian. Volume must be off unless using headphones. Save all work to a flash drive . Work left on the desktop is periodically cleaned out. The librarian is not responsible for work left on the computer. Acceptable use of technology and Internet follows school guidelines …you signed this agreement at the beginning of the year. Internet surfing follows school rules. All sites, images, videos, etc. must be “G” rated . Serious consequences apply.
