Computer classroom rules

Please note that there are no open computer labs in Simpkins. 309, 319, and 321 are classrooms. The nearest open computer lab is in Tillman.

  1. No food or drink in the classrooms at any time.
  2. Students should report any computer problems to their teachers immediately; teachers should report them (with computer number) to UTech (write the ticket number on the board).
  3. Only send a “Print” command once. The print command from a lab computer goes into a print queue—it will take some time before the printer responds. If the printer doesn’t respond after a few minutes, tell your teacher. Do not repeat the print command. If it didn't work the first time, it won't work the second time.
  4. If pages from the printer are faint or streaked, tell your teacher, who will report the problem.
  5. Only print what you really need to. Do not waste paper. In fact, you should print papers to be turned in before you get to class.
  6. Do not disconnect the keyboard or the mouse.
  7. Do not change the default settings for the Windows display.
  8. Do not use the computers for games at any time.
  9. Do not use the computers for personal e-mail during class time unless your teacher has given you permission to do so.
  10. Save your work to a flashdrive or the P drive. Files saved on the hard drive may be erased.
  11. Finally, please use the computers in the spirit of cooperation: keep them in suitable condition for the next person to use them.
