No Drop Offs - Please remember that we cannot accept items in the office to be dropped-off for students during the school. Our office staff works very hard to monitor and process visitors to the school and it is not feasible to contact and coordinate items being dropped off unless an emergency exists, such as reading glasses or medicine to be kept in the school clinic.
P-EBT provides a stimulus to households with children eligible for free or reduced price school meals through National School Lunch Program (NSLP) during the COVID 19 Response. See PEBT graphical FAQ.pdf at the bottom of the newsletter for more info.

ChromebooksPlease bring your fully charged Chromebook with you to school every day.
Taking Care of your Chromebook
1. Regularly inspect both pieces of charger and cord for frayed wires, or other issues. Make sure that the device is not plugged in during inspection.
2. Shut down the chromebook when not in use. This requires selecting the power button in the lower right corner, and not just closing the lid.
3. When charging the chromebook, be sure that the charger cord is firmly plugged in at the device and at the charger block. No loose connections.
4. Never try to charge the chromebook with a charger from another type of device, such as a cell phone. This could cause permanent damage to the chromebook, or charger.
5. Always use your chromebook on a hard surface such as a desk or lap board. Mobile devices must have air access all around it for cooling. Sitting the device on a blanket, or pillow can cause it to overheat.
6. Do not cover the chromebook or the charger with anything while plugged in. The device can overheat while charging if it is covered.
7. Do not use chemicals to wipe off the screen, and do not spray ANY liquids directly on the screen. Use only wipes or sprays designed for electronics. Spray cleaner on cloth and then wipe lightly.
8. For devices with swivel cameras, do not continuously spin the camera. It is sensitive and easily broken. Handle only when needed.
9. Inform school staff about any issues that you have with the device. Small issues can turn into big issues.
