Over the summer we will be in the office in the event that your child’s chromebook gets broken or your child’s charger gets lost or stops working. We will take broken chromebooks over the summer, but will NOT issue SPARE chromebooks as is the process during the school year. Any damage or missing items will result in a bill to the parent for the device/charger. This is a very different approach than we have taken in the past. Should you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact the office. Thank you for your time and attention to this matter. Students will return in the fall with their chromebooks and chargers on the first day of school. Principal Cowburn

Dear Parents and Guardians, This year the technology department has decided to send the chromebooks and chargers home with all students district wide. We will not be collecting the chromebooks or chargers at the end of the school year. Your son/daughter will bring his/her chromebook and charger home on the last day of school to be used over the summer. If your son/daughter has a spare because his/her original chromebook was damaged or broken and is out for repair, the spare will become the chromebook that he/she takes home for the summer. If you would NOT like your son/daughter to bring his/her chromebook home, please contact the school office. We will gather the information about your child and collect his/her chromebook and charger. Should you choose this route and are missing the chromebook or charger, a bill will be issued for replacement. Principal Cowburn
