Student's ONE-TO-ONE LAPTOPS

★ During the summer, devices should be turned on to maintain the date, time and wireless connections on at least a weekly basis. (This maintains the date and time, and allows for connection to WiFi)

★ Any time the computer is moved from one location to another, the computer should be closed and placed in the school provided computer bag. Computers should not be stored in tablet mode, where the screen/glass is exposed.

★ Devices SHOULD NOT be stored in any vehicle during the summer. Avoid exposing the computer to extreme hot and cold temperatures.

★ If a device is damaged or stolen during the summer, it should be reported to the Technology Division immediately. Please call our help desk at 402-715-6290.

★ If a student decides to leave the Millard Public Schools district over the summer, the computer, bag, and power adapter should be turned in at:

Ron Witt Support Services Center

13737 Industrial Road

Summer Hours: Monday thru Friday from 8:00 to 3:00 June 3 through July 26, 2019


★ When in doubt, reboot the computer. Many computer issues can be resolved by simply restarting the computer. A restart can often resolve issues more quickly than submitting a Helpdesk ticket or visiting Ron Witt Support Services Center (13737 Industrial Road).

★ All service and repair is handled by the District. Do not attempt to take your computer or device for repair to any non-District service center.
