Ellis Technology Return Procedures:
- If your student has saved any pictures/files on the device that you would like to keep, move those to their student Google Drive. Click here for a quick video tutorial.
- Make sure the device is fully charged when it is returned so that we can ensure that the device is in working order.
- If there is damage to the device, please contact Ms. Lisa now so that we can arrange payment for the repair, if applicable.
Please note: Students attending summer school will keep their devices until summer school is over.
If you have any questions, please contact Ms. Lisa (firstname.lastname@example.org).

School-Wide Grace & Courtesy Focus
The Language for Identifying/Naming the Qualities of Acceptance from the "Self- Awakened Child" series by Jonathan Wolff:
- When I feel peaceful about things I cannot change and I try to live happily with them, I am acting with Acceptance.
