Reminder to all students: We will be removing your network accounts over the summer, and adding you back to the network. You will be keeping your same network ID and password, but any files you have on the Z drive will be lost, so we recommend that you make a backup to into your Google Drive prior to the start of the summer. (Most of you no longer use the network drives, but some classes like CAD, Multimedia, etc.. still do.)

All student Google Accounts (Other than Sr’s and other students leaving the district) will remain in place each year.  You will have access to all Google Apps content 24x7 as long as you remain a Norris student.

Grades 9-12 students will be issued Chromebooks next year. More information will be coming out over the summer concerning the 1-1 program, device protection program, and other important details before the start of the 2017-18 school year.

Students leaving the district:  We will be removing you from the network and removing your Google Apps accounts shortly after school is out.  You may want to visit this help website, for moving data and information out of Google Apps: (There is a link to this page from the Norris Home Page, Google Apps site.)
