Chromebooks -

As part of Chesterfield County Public Schools’ plan to start the school year in a virtual learning environment, all K-12 students will be provided with a personal learning device for use at home or school when we eventually return to in-person instruction. Any registered Grange Hall Elementary School student not yet assigned a school division-issued Chromebook can come to the gym on August 5 between 7:30-11 a.m. or 2:30-6 p.m.

No appointment is necessary, but facial coverings or masks are required and social distancing guidelines will be followed. Your student does not have to personally attend, but parents are asked to provide their child's student ID number in order to receive a Chromebook.

GHES Chromebook Distribution

August 5

7:30 - 11 a.m. or 2:30 - 6 p.m.

**Park in the bus loop and report the gym to pick up your student's Chromebook**


If you are unable to make our school’s assigned distribution date, please visit the Hot Topics section of the CCPS webpage (https://mychesterfieldschools.com/category/hot-topics/) to locate the best time at the nearest school to you.


Unlike previous years, there is no Chromebook fee this school year. There are no forms to complete either. Hotspots will not be available at this event. If you have Internet-access needs, please contact our school directly.


**Due to Chromebook distributions, the Chromebook service sites will be closed the next two weeks. The Technology Department will resume providing Chromebook repair for students the week of August 17.


Pizza Fundraiser for Schools

The CCCPTA and Papa John’s have teamed up to support our Chesterfield County schools and families. All you have to do is order online from ANY of the Central Virginia Papa John’s locations to raise funds for our school and families.

Supporting our school is easy as pie! Take a night off from cooking and order from Papa John’s. Enter our school’s code, {GRANGE}, in the promo code box. Our school will receive 20% of all online sales using the code. Order from August 3rd-August 24th as many times as you would like to eat pizza! Anyone can help support your school even if they don’t have a current student. Share your school code with community businesses, family members or anyone that wants to support your teachers and families.
