How to connect to the St. John's Network.


 
Students have access to the St. John’s server between the hours of 7AM and 11PM.

2. In order to log on remotely you must have Windows XP, Windows 2000 or Windows Vista or a Mac OS X. It will not work on Windows 98.

3. The hours students may access St. John’s remotely will be from 7:00AM until 11:00PM every day.

4. All student activity is governed by the St. John the Baptist Acceptable Use Agreement signed by you and your student/s when they entered the school. All provisions of the Agreement cover remote access activity.
