Primary (PreK/K) students will be receiving iPads. Lower El-Erdkinder (1st-8th Grades) will be receiving Chromebooks to use in the classroom/at home this school year.
The district is offering a Family Protection Plan (FPP) for the devices this year for only $25. The FPP will cover accidental damage (not loss or theft) of the device and provide up to TWO replacement devices this school year. Please note that the cost of device repairs (if the FPP is NOT purchased) has increased due to demand for the parts (a Chromebook screen replacement, our most common repair, is now $90!), so we HIGHLY recommend that you purchase the FPP for each student's device.
The deadline to purchase the FPP is August 20, 2021.
The FPP can be purchased through School Cash Online. You will find instructions on how to register for School Cash Online and connect your student(s) to your account here.
If your family is in need of a HotSpot device, contact Ms. Lisa (firstname.lastname@example.org) to see if you qualify.
Student Learning Device Loan Form and FPP Information (This form MUST be filled out by a parent/guardian for EVERY student)- These will be available in your classroom at Open House or you can fill out the digital version at this link.
