Student Device Summer Plan

GRADES 5 - 11

Chromebooks (Grades 5-11)

All students in grades 5-11 will be taking their Chromebook and charger home over the summer.

This summer, we are excited to offer students voluntary learning opportunities in a Schoology course titled, Viking Summer Challenge 2019. The course contains extensions, enrichment, and skills-based assignments for students in grades 5-7 and 8-11. Students who participate will be offered a menu of incentives this summer and next year. Learners can receive prizes, privileges, and invitations to VIP events; most importantly, our students can sharpen their skills or extend their learning during the summer months.

All student work for incentives must be submitted by the DEADLINE: August 1st.

STUDENT TECH SUPPORT

Students must drop off their device at the Middle School Office between the hours of 8-3, Mon-Thurs during the summer for repairs. Students must complete a device Incident Report. Repairs may take longer than expected due to the busy summer hours of the tech department.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact the main office of your child.

NOTE: System updates will occur after August 5th, 2019. These are necessary updates to prepare Chromebooks for the new school year. These updates may impact connectivity.
