Dear Parents,

BYOD

Please remember that your child can bring his or her devise to school every day. There are books on eClass that they can read during reading. I also have math activities that they can do on the computer as well. Please remember to send the completed BYOD form with a description of your child's devise and the serial number if s/he plans to bring it to school. The form is in the Friday folder. We lock the classroom when we are not in it, so it will be in a secure location.
