WPS Technology Maintenance and Outage Notices

Tuesday, March 8, 2016 FIOS Internet Outage – High School Connection (NOTICE)
We are currently experiencing a Verizon FIOS outage with the Internet connection at the High School which currently services WMHS, Dolbeare, Greenwood, Walton, Woodville, and Doyle.  Verizon has been notified and are working on the issue.  To try and reduce the interruption time, we have temporarily redirected all district Internet access through the Galvin Middle School.  When the problem with the High School connection has been resolved, we will switch Internet service back over.

Saturday, August 22, 2015 – 4:10pm Google Mail Configuration (COMPLETE)
I think it’s safe to say that the configuration changes made to our email system have replicated across the Internet and our email is still being delivered properly.  I don’t  believe there was any email delivery downtime, as I initially thought there might be, so that’s a good thing.  If you notice anything out of the ordinary happening, please let me know immediately so I can determine if it’s related or not.

Friday, August 21, 2015 – 5:35pm Google Mail Configuration (IN PROGRESS)
The Google mail changes were made about an hour ago and it looks like so far, mail delivery was not affected at all.  I’ll keep checking throughout the night and day tomorrow just to make sure this continues and will send out another note when I think it’s complete.

Friday, August 21, 2015 – 4:00pm Google Mail Configuration (NOTICE)
Google has made changes to the way their email works which requires a configuration change on the back end.  This change can take up to 24 hours (likely less, but just in case) during which our email will not be delivered to us and senders will receive a bounce back message telling them so.  I’m going to make the changes on Friday at 4pm and will be checking it throughout the evening and day on Saturday to make sure delivery is restored.  I will send out a message when I’m able to receive messages again so others can try it.
