Summer 2018 Chromebook Information

Students in grades three through eleven who were issued a Chromebook this year will be allowed to take their Chromebook home for the summer. During that time they will be responsible for taking care of their district-issued device.  If a family does not want their child to have the Chromebook over the summer, the student must return the Chromebook and charger to their school’s media center before leaving for the summer. When school resumes in the fall, the same Chromebook and charger will be returned to the student during the first week of school. Consider a Protection Plan to reduce or eliminate potential fees (chargers are not covered by the protection plan) from accidental loss or damage. During the first or second week of school (each school will provide detailed directions), incoming sixth and ninth grade students will exchange their current Chromebook for a new one. Returning your Chromebook Think... Continue reading Summer 2018 Chromebook Information
