Device, Materials, and Library Book Return for DIGITAL STUDENTS

This section is for DIGITAL STUDENTS regarding return of Corley resources including technology, classroom textbooks and materials, and library books.

Parents and Guardians,

If your student has a school-owned Chromebook, laptop, hot spot, or other device, please plan to return the device on one of the designated dates and time listed below.

May 26th 10am-11am or 1pm-2pm

May 27th 9-11am

When returning your device, please bring the device, charger, and hotspot if you have one. Make sure you have the device fully charged and powered on.

Devices will be assessed for damage upon return and fines may be assigned based on the damage in order to cover the cost of replacement parts and repairs. Fines can be paid by credit or debit card, cash, or check at the time of the return. If a device is returned in good condition, no fine will be assigned. Students who do not pay fines will not be able to check out devices until fines are cleared.

If a student needs a device for summer learning, the school will work with you to provide a device. We're excited to see you!

Media Center Update


Please take a moment to look for any books your child has checked out of the media center. If you're not sure what he/she has checked out, please ask your student to look in their Destiny account. All books were due on May 19th. Books that have been marked lost will show in MyPaymentPlus.

Payments can be made in MyPaymentPlus or you can send the fee to the school with your student or bring it yourself.
