We are very excited that the district has been able to provide each of our KCS students a Chromebook for the school year. It is our hope that students will find this to be a very useful tool for learning. We do have a couple of announcements that need your attention.
In order to get the best performance from your Chromebook, please do the following:
CHECK FOR UPDATES
Click your account photo
Under "Google Chrome OS", click Check for Updates
If your Chromebook finds a software update, it will start to download automatically.
FINISH AN UPDATE
When your Chromebook downloads a software update, near your account photo, look for the Update icon
To finish the update, click Update
Your Chromebook will restart.
If you are a customer of TDS (Farragut, Halls, Cedar Bluff areas):
This internet provider has certain features blocked. Please take the following steps to avoid problems with software applications:

Change Name Servers from "Automatic name servers" to "Google name servers"
NOTE: If you have two Wi-fi networks (for example, 2g and 5g) in your home, you may need to go through these steps for both.
