Repeat Announcements:

As some of you might know, the GoodNotes 4 app is no longer updating for students and you are losing the ability to back up your documents. The district has purchased GoodNotes 5 for all students who currently are using GoodNotes 4. Those students will need to open the Self Service Cart and download GoodNotes 5. Do not delete GoodNotes 4 until after all of the documents have been transferred to the new app! Once GoodNotes 5 has been downloaded, you will need to follow the attached directions in order to transfer documents from the old app.
