Receiving Your Device

All parents/guardians of 6th-12th grade students must review this Family Guide and the forms listed below.

What To Expect

My child will be in 6th grade

Over the course of the school year, students will be involved in activities to help build and demonstrate their understanding of the responsible use of technology and internet safety. Once students grow accustomed to school within a mobile device culture, your child’s school will decide to start sending the devices home. Communication will be sent from your school administrator as to when the Chromebooks will be coming home.
