Bug hits Tupelo school system's Mac computers, Internet

By NEMS Daily Journal

TUPELO – A bug has recently prevented Internet access on some of the Tupelo Public School District’s student laptops, superintendent Randy Shaver said.
But the district is working hard to correct the “software issue,” he said.
The issue arose from the installation of filters on the computers to prevent them from accessing social networking sites and blocked websites at school and at home.
That software has caused a bug on some computers that shuts down Internet access.
When asked, the superintendent stressed that the district has not disabled the Internet on the MacBooks and does not have any intention of doing so.
