All school provided computers come with a Windows 10 software package including Microsoft Office, Virus Protection and over 45 educational software apps for use at school and at home. When these computers are logged on to the school network they will be updated automatically to keep software upgrades current and prevent virus activity. Long periods away from the school may deactivate software leading to some malfunctions. Returning the device to school and logging on will usually prevent this from happening.
