COVID-19: Technology

Distribution of Chromebooks

As we move into Phase 2 of Distance Learning, we are committed to ensuring that students have the digital and technological resources needed to learn.

On Tuesday, April 7, we will begin loaning Chromebook laptops to elementary students (grades PreK–5) who have limited or no access to a device at their homes. We have a coordinated plan of loaning out device April 7-9 at our elementary school campuses.
