iPad OS 14.0.1 - Install the Update!

The latest iPadOS is available and ready to install on the iPad.

Technology Services pushed the availability of the update to all district iPads over the past weekend.

Most student devices will have downloaded and prepared the update already, but if not, it can take extended time. This update is critical in maintaining network security and integration with core SPPS platforms.

Devices need to be charged above 50% (if unplugged) or above 20% (if plugged) and connected to WiFi (if the download is not complete) in order to run this update.

See this step-by-step presentation for running the update.

See this step-by-step video for running the update.

Stages 2 and 3 Readiness to Return Family Surveys

We continue to prepare for in-person learning for students across the district and are planning to welcome all students and teachers back to in-person learning at some point in the school year in a safe and careful manner. We have carefully created a transition plan that has students transitioning to hybrid learning spaces in groups.

There are two surveys for families of elementary age students.Please take some time to respond to these surveys. Your feedback will help us with communication and further planning.

1st and 2nd Grade:

This survey will close on Saturday, October 10. If you have any questions, please contact Stacey Gray Akyea at

3rd-5th Grade:

This survey will close on Sunday, October 11. If you have any questions, please contact Stacey Gray Akyea at
