End of the year Chromebook return
To prepare for the end of the school year and Summer Learning Academy, FFSD will begin the Chromebook collection process. Student Chromebooks and accessories (AC charger) are collected at the end of each school year for maintenance and updates.
In-person students, grades Pre K-11: Please turn in your Chromebook with the charger on the last day of school, June 3. For those students attending Summer Learning Academy, a new device will be issued when students arrive during the first week of summer learning.
Virtual students, grades Pre K-11: Please turn in your Chromebook with the charger at your home school on June 4, 7, or 8. For families with multiple students, Chromebooks can be returned to one location for all devices. Chromebooks can be dropped off between 9 a.m - 3 p.m., visit the school office for drop-off, and you will be issued a receipt. For those students attending the in-person Summer Learning Academy, a new device will be issued when students arrive during the first week of summer learning.
Virtual and in-person students, grade 12: Graduating seniors MUST return their Chromebook by their last day. Seniors should NOT keep devices over the summer.
ALL Chromebooks must be collected by June 9. If Chromebooks and accessories are not returned, the parent/guardian will be held responsible for payment in full.
