**ATTENTION: THIS MESSAGE WAS ALSO SENT SEPARATELY TO INDIGENOUS FAMILIES WHO'VE REQUESTED LAPTOPS VIA EMAIL**
Families who DID NOT check the box to indicate device need on their Intent to Return surveys DID NOT have laptops reserved for them at this distribution.
If your student(s) still need a laptop: Please contact us AND contact your home school site. We have not forgotten about you, and you still remain our priority to receive a device. Stay tuned for updates via email and Instagram. In the event that your expressed need for a laptop has changed, that is to say you are no longer in need of a laptop, please let us know.
Please remain patient during these uncertain times. We have several families requesting laptops, and are doing our best to fulfill all of these needs so that you have the necessary resources to be successful this school year. Ahéhee'!
