Chromebook Distribution

 
chrome book
 
For those families who do not have their own computers or other devices that will allow for remote learning:
 
Effective today, Tuesday, March 17, 2020, from 1:00 - 4:00 PM, and again tomorrow Wednesday, March 18, 2020 from 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM, chromebooks for remote learning will be distributed for all students in the District, Grades K - 12.
 
The distribution sites will be at the child's school building and will be delivered to you by a staff member at curbside.  Please remain in your vehicles during this distribution.  We ask that parents and guardians be patient during this process as we are looking out for the safety of everyone involved.
 
The student will receive a chromebook and charger.  We will provide a release form which contains information about appropriate care of the device as it will need to be returned to school once school resumes its regular schedule.
 
We will have more information about the District's educational plan for your child by the end of the week.  Please look for future updates and check the District website periodically.
