BROKEN CHROMEBOOKS: We have learned that some of the Chromebooks that were given to families this week were broken. On Saturday, March 28 at Veterans Elementary school from 10am to 1pm, you can bring a broken device and receive a different one. You must bring the broken device with you. To ensure everyone’s health, please only have one person from your family come. We will be following the guidance of social distancing and require everyone to be 6 feet apart and have only 10 people at the location at a time. We ask that if your last name begins with A-M please come between 10am and 11:30am and if your last name begins with N-Z please come between 11:30am and 1pm. Saturday we will also be attempting redeliveries for grades 2nd-8th. Please note there are no additional Chromebooks or hotspots available. If you need wifi, please call COX about their 2 FREE months at 888-234-3993. If you have support questions, including username and password, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
For the health and safety of everyone, we are changing the Chromebook distribution to delivery. There will NOT be pick-up at Veterans Elementary School tomorrow. We will begin this with 5 busses tomorrow morning and distribute by grade level starting with 8th grade. The goal is still to have a device in every household by Friday afternoon. Thank you, Dr. Toledo
