LAPTOP/IPAD Device for 2021-2022 School Year

As we are beginning to prepare for our 2021-2022 school year, we are preparing to give out devices for all students that have not received a device last year from our school building. Our school is a 1-1 school with devices.

  • Every child will receive a laptop (if you have wifi at home) or I-Pad (no wifi at home) to bring back and forth to school. It is their main supply for the school year.
  • Students MUST carry their laptop/I-Pads with their chargers with them everyday with a laptop cover. 
  • Please make sure that your child has charged their Laptop/I-Pad every night to be prepared for a full day of school learning the next school day.
  • Under no circumstances can students bring their own personal devices from home to our school building, as we are not responsible if something happens to the device. 
  • If you already have a DOE device you do not need to come and get one.
  • Please kindly make sure that you have a device for your child before the September 13 start date. 

DEVICE PICK UP

Please choose a date and time that is convenient for you.  Please only come at that time as we are strict with covid protocols. All people coming to pick up a device will need a mask to come into the building. Students will need an adult to sign out the device. We recommend that you bring a bag with you to carry the laptop/ipad home in. You will come through the main entrance for pick up. 

  • Students with wifi at home will be able to come and pick up their laptop for the school year.
  • If you have a DOE IPAD & have wifi at home, you will then trade the IPAD in for a DOE Laptop.
  • If you do not have wifi at home you will receive an IPAD.
