All devices should be kept at school from Monday, May 9th. If you have not brought back your child's charger, please do so ASAP! We will still be using them in the classroom, but this will allow us plenty of time to begin the check in process of the ipads in our classrooms and ensure that everyone has their device returned.

A note from Liberty's Director of Technology...

As the end of the year approaches we would like to remind everyone of a few things regarding the student devices. All devices will be turned in at the end of the year and current kindergarten, first, third, fourth and fifth graders will receive their same device in the fall. If your child is attending summer school they will also receive the same device they are using now. The only exception would be incoming third graders and they will be issued a Chromebook and it will be the same device they use in the fall.

If you have outstanding claims we do ask that you try to resolve those as soon as you can. If you have a device that needs repaired have your child let the classroom teacher know so the claim process can be started. We will not be thoroughly examining devices that will be returned to the same user in the fall. They should expect to receive the device in the same condition that it was turned in. Over the summer claims will be filed for any issues we do find and if you have any questions over the summer please contact the help desk at 736-7078.

Thank you.
