We have since removed this restriction, however, if your computer is affected, you will start receiving a pop-up message warning you that your access is about to expire when you start approaching the two-week limit. We have made Wi-Fi available outside of our schools where you can drive up and connect to the schools Wi-Fi without having to go in. The area where Wi-Fi should be accessible at each school may be seen by going to the following link https://www.wayneschoolswv.org/wifi . You can simply drive up to any school, connect Wi-Fi, log off or restart your device, then log back in with your regular username and password and this should correct any further login issues. If for some reason you do not have transportation to one of the schools, you can call the technology hotline at (681) 203-5268. Technical support is available M-F 8 to 4. * Please make sure you are connected to the Wi-Fi before you log in or nothing will change and your laptop will not update! *
