Packing Up Materials to Return to School

Please follow the directions below for packing up items for return to school. Note that we are requesting a label identifying student name/homeroom both inside and outside of bags.


o All textbooks, library books, etc. should be placed in a large plastic trash bag. Chromebooks and charging cables being returned to the district should not be in this bag. Please keep chromebook separate.

o Before sealing the bag, please write or type/print out the following information on a piece of paper and include it in the top of the bag:


  • Name of the student (first and last)
  • Grade-level of the student (5,6) and homeroom
  • List of the contents of the bag


o Seal the bag. Tape can be used or a knot can be tied in the top of the bag.

  • Name of student (first and last)
