Device and Technology Tracking for students

Many of you have already made contact with all of your students. Please continue to try and make contact with all of your families. Ms. Kern created a Google Sheet log for us to use to track which students we have contacted and their technology status. Please begin plugging in the information on the sheet so we can track which of our families still need to be contacted.


The list is arranged by grade and homeroom teacher. Feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns.
