Staff That #gobeyond

Ipads outside & new device rollout

Let's make sure to remind our kids to keep all electronic devices inside. There has been an outbreak of sorts this week. Make sure they don't go to recess, iPads or devices from home.


The new iPads are in and we will start phasing them in on Monday with 5th Grade. I will have letters that go home with each grade level as we get to them. I'm not sure on an exact timeline we will know more on Monday.
