Updating Our iPads

This week the tech department will be updating the apps on your iPads. Before they can run the updates, you will need to update your iPad to iOS 8 at home, with parent supervision. Your iPad should be plugged in when you do the update and it will take some time. Please remember to bring a fully charged iPad to school on Wednesday.

How To Update to iOS 8 at Home 

Your parents should have received an email on Friday, November 7th with information and a handout. In case you can't find it, you can access the same handout here.

Note: The update will take some memory. If you receive a message saying you don't have enough memory, delete photos and videos you don't need. If you need to keep the photos and videos, you can save them to your Google Drive.
