Oh, the places we'll go as a 1:1 campus!

As we go on our first holiday break with the iPads going home, we'd like to remind you of a few things:

1. Please make sure you monitor what your child is doing on their iPad

2. Please do not allow your child to make any changes on their iPad

3. Please make sure iPads are charged and ready to go the Monday we return to school!

Enjoy your holiday!

We hope you have a wonderful holiday!
