Please DO NOT upgrade to macOS Catalina just yet!

As some of you may be aware, Apple has released the Mac OS 10.15 Catalina. Currently, we cannot verify that all of the school-issued software will work on the new OS X release.  Please DO NOT update your OS until we have completed testing for all software which includes post-update. Updating your system before verification of software compatibility could result in missed classwork or homework. We will notify everyone when it is safe to upgrade.

Below is an article regarding more information about Apple macOS 10.15 Catalina Compatibility List.
