The Technology Department at SBS makes an effort to assist students with personal computer issues and, as necessary, help to arrange for outside service and repairs. To better facilitate assistance, students should bring any software that came with their computer, as well as information pertaining to warranty status. Our ability to assist international students with their computers may be limited by the native language of the computer they bring to school. The School will provide virus protection for all student- owned computers. The Technology Department generally cannot address recreational needs such as DVD players, video cameras, gaming software and components. The Technology Department may choose not to address computer issues which arise due to abuse or neglect. Students are responsible for any costs incurred for outside service and repairs.

Our in-school network is available for academic purposes during all class and study hall hours. Students may access the internet via their own computers for recreational purposes only within time and hour limits allotted for each grade level which are subject to change for academic or disciplinary reasons. Students are requested to turn off their personal computers when not in use to save electricity.
