3-20-2020 Update: Chromebook Update

Parents and Guardians,

Our campuses and technology department have been working diligently the past couple of days to for prepare the check-out of district Chromebooks. Our campuses have all the devices packaged and ready for distribution so we are going to start checking-out devices tomorrow at all campuses. We will continue check-out on Monday as an option for those who are unable to get to a campus tomorrow. Below are the dates and times.

Chromebook Check-out Dates and Times:

  • Saturday, March 21 from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. (all campuses)
  • Monday, March 23 from 7 a.m. - 4 p.m. (high school) and 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. (elementary, intermediate and junior high campuses)

As we mentioned in prior communication, you do not need a district device to access the learning materials on the district website. All of the learning materials can be accessed from home computers, tablets and smartphones. 

Later this afternoon, you will see the Student Learning Plans for each grade level on our district website. Parents will be able to access the elementary materials directly from the webpage and students grades 5 - 12 will be able to access learning materials through Canvas. As we have stated, the activities will not be graded, but teachers will be checking in with students and helping as needed so the students stay on track. 

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we prepare to deliver independent learning opportunities for all of our students. We will continue to communicate with our families and keep information updated on our website and all of our district social media channels.
