The start of a new school year is like the start of a new beginning.

This site is using a fairly new technology tool called Google Drive.
System requirements and browsers
Are you using Windows XP with Internet Explorer?
If you are using Windows XP you may have some trouble viewing the documents because Microsoft will not allow you to update Internet Explorer past version 8. A workaround is to use Google Chrome. Google Chrome will provide updates for XP through 2015.
please comment below If you are having other issues with the site.
