Common Questions:

What do I do if I still do not have internet or a device?
All VERIZON customers were pushed 15 FREE GB of data for hotspot use. Please check this out on your phone.  Please update your child's teacher if you have been able to get FREE internet. 
The district is currently working with a provider to get internet set up for the families that do not have it.  With the high demand for internet for many businesses, it has taken a long time to talk back and forth to get things in order.       Students in K-4 will  be getting the devices. The orders are taking longer than usual and we will be taking extra precautions to unpack them and get them ready for your students.   The estimated delivery to your home for students in grades K-1 is Monday, April 6th and the chromebooks for grades 2 -4 is still pending. 

 The district will also be e-mailing the Technology Agreement information statement out to families when you get your new device.  You will get this and please do NOT return the document.  Please e-mail to to tell us that you received it and consent to allowing your child use technology for school related business.   I will continue to update you.  

Students in K-4 had homework delivered to their homes on Friday, March 27 and Saturday, March 28.  This is the requirement for the week of March 30th - there is no ONLINE requirement for students in grades K-4 until every student has internet and a device.

What do I do if my child's chromebook does not work using sound, video or other?
If there is an issue with the Chromebook, please contact us and we will make arrangements to exchange.

What happens if my child misses or skips a scheduled class while I am at work 
or will not do their schoolwork?  
If your child misses a class, the teacher will be in contact with you.  If your child is sick and CANNOT be in attendance, please contact the school as iif you would have before to the new number.  If your child is refusing to do the schoolwork, if you have any questions at all, please e-mail this information or contact teachers and administration.
