Internet Connection Issues for Laptops
IPads, Cords, and Powerblocks—Oh My!
A day many students anxiously await is arriving soon—the day iPads begin to be taken home! The target date for 1st through 4th grade iPads to begin coming home with students each night is Monday, August 15. For kindergartners, that date will be September 12. Before those dates, please take a moment to read over the iPad Guidelines with your child to make sure they are taking the best care of their iPad as possible! Those guidelines can be found at http://bit.ly/2aDHBEE.
One exception to this are students whose families have financial obligations for damaged iPads or lost/missing chargers and powerblocks from last year. All financial obligations need to be paid in full for a student’s iPad to be sent home. Students with outstanding balances will have their iPads kept at school until payment arrangements are made.
In addition to the iPad being sent home, on that date, every student will be getting a new charging cable and a new/gently used charging block to bring home. This year, East Noble is changing its policy regarding charging equipment. Students will be issued a powerblock and cord when they first receive their iPad and they will KEEP that equipment through whenever their time with their iPad is finished. For instance, a kindergartener receiving an iPad this year will keep the charging cable and powerblock through the end of the fourth grade year and then turn it in. A fourth grader receiving a charging cable and powerblock will keep that equipment through the end of this year and then turn it in. (Students withdrawing during the school year will turn in their equipment to their school at the time of withdrawal.) Cords and powerblocks will not be collected over the summer. Should the charging cable become lost or damaged during that time, parents may purchase replacements from wherever they choose; school book stores will also have replacements for $10.00.
Again, please take a moment to look over the iPad Care Guidelines with your child so that together we take the best care as possible with these devices.
