Deep Freeze: We are removing the use of this program throughout the district in phases, but it may still exist on many systems. This program causes all changes to be
wiped out with each reboot of the computer. If something bad happens to
the computer it can usually be set back right just by rebooting. It is
in the lower right corner of the screen and is a little gray polar bear
face icon. If Deep Freeze is disabled this icon will blink red. While
disabled changes to the computer will be permanent.
Home Directories: Every login links to a home directory
(H:\ drive). This is your own personal secure folder on the network.
Any computer that you log on to will give you access to the files you
put here. Students must use this in order for their work to be saved.
Anything saved locally to a computer (like to My Documents) may not be
there the next time the student comes back to that computer.
Drop boxes: Every teacher can request a drop box. This
will be a folder on the network where students can place their finished
documents and projects for grading.
At JCMS these will be located at \\jcms\dropboxes
At MHS these will be located at \\madras\dropboxes
Shutting down: Student computers may be shut down at
the end of the school day every day except Monday. Please leave all
computers on on Monday nights for scheduled maintenance.
