End-of-the-Year iPad Collection Dates

Parents & Guardians; We will be collecting iPads, charging bricks and cords, from all 7th-11th-grade students on the following dates during Language Arts & Reading classes.

  • May 17th AM = 9th Grade

  • May 18th AM = 7th Grade
  • May 21st AM = 11th Grade (iPads & Laptops)
  • May 21st PM = 8th Grade

It is important for the life of the iPads and the safety of our students/families that we use “Made for iPod, iPhone, iPad” or MFi (Apple Certified) cords and bricks.  (Articles from ABC and CNET)  If your student needs either the cord or brick, they can purchase those any time from the office.  *Late cords and bricks will not be accepted this year.  Students that forget their cord/brick will be charged for those items.  Charges will be added in PowerSchool.  The cost of the bricks are $15 and the cords are $15.

Damages on the iPads and cases will be assessed on an individual basis.
