Updates usually happen once a day. The K12LTSP squidGuard package is
set to automatically sync at 5:00am every day.

No, I you probably don't want to use --delete. The "--delete" option
will likley remove any of your custom & local blacklists. Without
the "--delete" option, only specific blacklist categories are
updated. You can see the list by running this command:

This script would work if you are rolling your own. The user needs
to be changed from "proxy.proxy" to "squid.squid" and the path
from "/var/lib/squidguard/db" to "/var/squidGuard/blacklists/".
I'll attach the K12LTSP update script.
