End of Year Student Chromebook Collection:

How do you know what day to return your device and charger to the media center? Students must return their chromebook and charger to the media center once they have completed all required EOCs, teacher-made exams and work for this semester. If you do not have any EOCs or teacher-made exams (due to exemption), your device must be returned by June 2nd. Students taking EOCs and teacher-made exams the week of June 5th, will return their device & charger to the media center on the last day you take an exam. ALL devices and chargers must be returned to the media center no later than June 9th to avoid charges. Lost chargers are $30.00 and should be paid for when you return your device. If you have any questions, see Mrs. Heath.
