Please Return Student Chromebooks

  • Please send students with their Bremerton School District Chromebook and charger on the first day of school (even if it is damaged or no longer working).
  • Chromebooks will be swapped out and re-assigned to students as needed so each student will have a chromebook to use.
  • Kindergarten students will also have a chromebook assigned to them that will stay in the classroom.
  • Hot Spots: If you have a hot spot from our district, those will work until September 15th. After that day, they will no longer work but can be swapped out for a new one at school if needed.
