We will begin assigning Chromebooks on August 19th.....

Parents - please make sure your child has a signed AUP form (in their agenda) BEFORE Monday. Students without AUPs will not be assigned a Chromebook. If you choose to purchase Chromebook insurance, fill out the form (also in the agenda) and attach your $10 check to the form. Write your child's name clearly and write "CB insurance" in the memo. Chromebook insurance is optional but the deadline to purchase it is September 20th. Students should keep the signed AUP in their agendas until the day they are assigned a device. Thank you for your support!

Here are just a few snapshots from our first week!
