National School Counseling Week

Shout out to our School Counselor Mr. Bank! Thank you for all that you do to support our students and families.

Chromebooks and Cold temperatures

As we move into the winter months, it's important to remember that no technology devices should be left in cars overnight.

Batteries drain rapidly in freezing temperatures and condensation can cause permanent damage to the battery and LCD screen. If you forget to bring your student's Chromebook into your home, the best thing to do is not use it immediately. Bring it inside and gradually let the Chromebook warm to room temperature before charging and turning on the device.
