End of Year Device Collection Letter English/Spanish

Message below via Video https://youtu.be/kWfR1Z2BIBg



Greetings Parents and Students,


To support teaching and learning this year, we have checked out more than 600 devices (Chromebooks, Laptops, Hotsopts,etc.) to our students through our e-Circulation system! With that said, the year is almost over and soon it will be time to collect all devices!

If your child has a device checked out, please speak with them about it. Make sure that they have the device AND the power cords, etc. that were checked out to them. Additionally, inspect the device carefully to see if there are any issues – cracked screen, missing keys, more than “normal wear and tear” etc. Please recall that all the beginning of the year, you received information regarding expectations and care for the equipment. Additionally, fines can be assessed to the student if the device checked out is returned damaged or not returned at all.

If your child is an in-person learner, and they no longer need the device, they may bring it to the school and have it removed from their account. We will assess the device to ensure that it is not damaged. If there is damage, we will reach out to you with further instructions/fine information.

In the month of May, you will receive more information regarding device collection. I want to make sure that this was on your radar.

Your Proud Principal

Darlene Brown

Fin de año Carta de recogida de dispositivos inglés/español

Spanish Version

Saludos Padres y Estudiantes,

Para apoyar la enseñanza y la inclinación este año, hemos comprobado más de 600 dispositivos (Chromebooks, portátiles, hotsopts, etc.) a nuestros estudiantes a través de nuestro sistema de circulación electrónica! Dicho esto, el año casi ha terminado y pronto será el momento de recoger todos los dispositivos!

Si su hijo tiene un dispositivo revisado, por favor hable con ellos al respecto. Asegúrese de que tienen el dispositivo Y los cables de alimentación, etc. que se les revisaron. Además, inspeccione el dispositivo cuidadosamente para ver si hay algún problema - pantalla agrietada, llaves que faltan, más que "desgaste normal", etc. Recuerde que todo el comienzo del año, recibió información sobre las expectativas y el cuidado del equipo. Además, las multas se pueden evaluar al estudiante si el dispositivo desprotegido se devuelve dañado o no se devuelve en absoluto.

Si su hijo es un alumno en persona, y ya no necesita el dispositivo, puede llevarlo a la escuela y que se lo quiten de su cuenta. Evaluaremos el dispositivo para asegurarnos de que no esté dañado. Si hay daños, nos comunicaremos con usted con más instrucciones / información fina.

En el mes de mayo, recibirá más información sobre la recopilación de dispositivos. Quiero asegurarme de que esto estaba en tu radar.

Su orgulloso director

Darlene Brown
