FCPSOn Laptops for SOL & VRSPT

All virtual students, whether they take the SOL or the VRSPT, need to make sure that computers have been restarted and are updated prior to testing.  It is important that they come to Stone or it will affect their ability to take an SOL test on the day that they are scheduled.
