Seniors- Don’t lose your Google Drive Contents

If you are a senior or a student leaving KHS at the end of the school year, please be aware that your district Google Drive account will be deleted at some point. Luckily it is easy to export files from Drive to a computer or another non-district Google account. Here are directions on how you can do that.

There is also a Google service called Transferhttps://takeout.google.com/transfer?pli=1

Here is a video that shows how it works

New Website

One day this week you’ll notice things look different on our district and school websites. Our IT department has been busily working to migrate them to a more accessible platform. Everything will be on the same pages as before, so you’ll be able to find things easily.

So, what’s changing?

  •       Specific links may change, so if you’ve bookmarked something, you might need to relink it.
  •       The websites are much more compliant with ADA standards, making them accessible to people with vision challenges.
  •       Web pages are cleaner and easier to read.

We are looking for volunteers for next year’s classes. If you have a degree in computer science or experience in computer programming and can dedicate about 1-2 hours a week (you’ll be done by 9:00 AM) please contact brenda.sargent@kelsosd.org for more information.
