FAQs About Your Computer and Using the Internet

  • The Online School (OLS) works best on a laptop or desktop computer. We do not recommend using tablets for coursework at this time. You may be able to complete some parts of your work on a tablet (i.e. reading e-books). However, a tablet will not be sufficient for the majority of the work that you need to complete.  

    Please make sure your computer is OLS-compatible prior to school starting.

    Also, be sure to refer to the list of preferred browsers to use with the Online School (OLS).

Quick Reference

Please keep the web pages below handy for quick reference, as they contain school-specific information, such as upcoming events and information dates.
