Protecting your Digital Device by being Safe
CPS has invested in your future by providing each student access to digital devices — laptops or surface pros while in the classroom to better prepare students for the technology they will need when they enter post-secondary education and the workplace.
It is important to remember your safety is of the utmost importance.
Student Safety Tips
