TOWER- The new computer lab at Vermilion Country School is open for community use, on days the school is in session, from 11:30 a.m. – 2 p.m.
VCS students will be trained to help give beginning computer users assistance and tutoring on the computers, which are 12 iMacs models with up-to-date software and the full suite of Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, etc) installed. Visitors must check in at the school office prior to use.
A printer has been ordered and will be set up for public use.
The school is looking to partner with outside organizations that would be able to offer computer skills training, or for other uses for the new computer lab. The computer lab is taking advantage of the new broadband-speed network now installed at the school building.
“These computers should be very useful for our senior diners,” said school administrator Frank Zobitz. The school offers senior dining for $4 for any seniors aged 60 or older who have registered through the AEOA (and $5.75 for other guests). Senior dining is from 12:30 – 1:30 p.m. on days the school is in session.
For more information on senior dining, call the school at 218-300-1447. Reservations are also appreciated. Diners need to register one-time with the AEOA at 1-800-662-5711 ext. 7323 to qualify for the $4 per meal rate. The weekly menus are published in the local papers and are available on the school website at www.vermilioncountry.org. There are no income guidelines for senior dining.
