Laptop Turn-In is happening next Tuesday, May 25th for all students, virtual and in-person. If your student is enrolled in Summer School or AP classes, make sure you see the information regarding their turn in at the bottom of this message.

Technology will be at Staley from 8-11 a.m. collecting laptops and charger cords from all students. In-person students will be released during their school day to return their laptop and charger. Virtual students have the option of coming during that time to drop their laptop off directly to technology in the gym or in the main office.

If for some reason a student is not able to turn in their device and charger during this time on Tuesday, an obligation will be placed on their account until the laptop and charger are returned.

Laptops and chargers can be turned in to Staley's main office during school and summer hours or to the Northland Innovation Center 3rd Floor Tech area (6889 N Oak Trafficway, Gladstone, MO 64118).

If your student is enrolled in Summer School or has a pending AP Exam, they still need to bring in their computer on Tuesday to be examined. The device will be re-checked out to them that morning to use for the class or during the exam. Students who are keeping their device for these reasons will need to turn in their device upon completion of Summer School or their AP Exam to either the main office or the Northland Innovation Center.
