Chromebooks- END OF SCHOOL YEAR PLAN 2021-22
Schools should ensure the guidelines below are followed, to allow students access to technology over the summer and ensure a relatively smooth start to the school year in August.
RETURNING STUDENTS: Please ensure that every student in 2nd - 11th grade takes home their Chromebook and power cord when they leave school at the end of the school year. Students will return to school in the fall and continue to use the same device for the new school year.
Opportunities to utilize Chromebooks during the summer include:
use during district-sponsored summer programs (eg. summer school)
access to learning acceleration opportunities suggested by school sites, or additional curated educational technology content
ability to increase personal knowledge or skill in a desired subject area
All students in 2nd - 11th grade should take their assigned Chromebook and power cord home.
Parents, please review these Yearbook guidelines to your child
Yearbook Guidelines for Students:
● Students should put their name in INK in the yearbook upon receiving their book.
● Sharpie/Permanent Ink pens are not allowed on campus for yearbook signing. Ballpoint pens work best.
● Vulgar language/pictures are not appropriate for yearbooks. Students will receive school consequences.
● Students who vandalize other student's yearbooks will have their yearbooks taken away and will need to replace the damaged book.
● Autograph books are available for all students who did not purchase a yearbook.
● If you did not receive your yearbook, then it is being held due to fines. You need to go to the office to pay your fine and receive your yearbook.
