Important Message For All Seniors

This is a very important message for LPS Seniors (graduates) with data on Google Drive that they wish to take with them.  LPS urges EVERY Senior to retrieve this data prior to leaving LPS.  Even if the student is unsure if they will ever want it, it is very important to grab it NOW.  As soon as they leave LPS (even the day after they leave) their files are no longer available to them.

ALL GRADUATING SENIORS are asked to follow the instructions on THIS PAGE (http://home.lps.org/cs/2016/05/03/export-your-google-drive-data/) prior to graduation.
