*Handle your COW with care. You are responsible for returning it in the same condition in which you received it.
*As possible, use the COW assigned to you every time we use them! Your COW will get to know you and signing on will be faster.
*Once the COW is flat on your desk, leave it there. Do not move around the room with the COW. We do not want any COWs tipped or dropped.
*Log on to the COW with your ID number and Zangle password, but do NOT share that information with other students.
*When using the COW, use it for assigned purposes only. Any inappropriate uses will result in the loss of COW privileges and further consequences if necessary.
*When finished working, save your work to the appropriate place (see below), log off, and shut down if no other students are waiting to use that COW.
*The last person logged onto the COW should return it to the correct spot in the cart, wrap the cord so there is not extra wire dangling, and attach the power. Neglecting this responsibility will result in the loss of COW privileges.
2. Saving Procedures
*Save EVERY document in this format unless instructed otherwise:
First Initial Whole Last Name brief activity name Per#. File Extension
*ALWAYS save to your documents folder so you can access the file again. The desktop is NOT safe!
*Also, ALWAYS save to a flashdrive to back up all your documents. This is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY!
3. Submitting Work to the Hand-In Folder
You will frequently submit final work files to the MCMS Student server instead of as a
printed hard copy or on a flashdrive. NOTE: Hand-In Folders are NOT accessible off campus.
*Open your document to be sure you have the right/current file.
*Go to File, Save As
*Check that you have saved your file in the format provided:

*Go to Teacher Folders, your teacher, your period
*Drag and drop the file you saved on the Desktop to the Hand-In folder for your period.
*Approve the Warning notification.
*If I have the Hand-In folder visible on the SmartBoard, you can watch for your file to appear.
*Back up the submitted file to your flashdrive before you delete it from the Desktop.
