Let us remember that we are in the holy presence of God.

Students, please update your iPad to the newest iOS 10.2. Before you update your device, make sure your files are backed up to your iCloud, especially in Pages, Numbers, Keynote, and GoodReader. Updating can be done by going to Settings < Software Update. You may not update at school; updates must be performed at home.

A reminder that DeLaSalle recommends keeping at least 3GB of free space on your device at all times to insure proper usage. If you experience issues with apps closing or your device being slow, this is due to your device running out of space. Best practice is to delete large apps if you do not use them such as Garage Band or iMovie. If you delete one of them, but need them later in the semester, go to the Meraki app and download them from there. If you use them then you must delete personal apps before deleting any school apps
