Principal’s Message
 
Placing a district owned Chromebook in every student’s hand a few months ago was quite helpful to the academic success of many of our studentsthis year. And we’re going to do it again next year as well. But now it’s time for us to start the process of collectinthem and performing upgrades or maintenance on them this summerYour child needs to make sure they have both their Chromebook (and the charger with iton the days designated below. The devices will be picked up during one of their class periods on that day. And while were on the subject........your 12, 13, 14 year olds have done a pretty good job of taking care of these devices. Weve had a couple of mishaps this year but largely our young people protected them likethey own them. We appreciate them (and you) for taking such good care of them. Here is the pick-up schedule this week.
