Gr 3-5 Laptop Swap

MONDAY, OCTOBER 5 

Dear Families of our Computer Science Immersion (CSI) Students,

We are happy to announce that students in grades 3-5 will be switching from ThinkPad laptops to Chromebooks. 

For those of you unfamiliar with Chromebooks, these computers offer a number of key advantages over the current computers deployed.  Most notably:

  • Simplified and secure operating system (easy to use)
  • Long battery life (8-10 hours of use)
  • Fast boot times (can boot up in just 10 seconds)
  • Browser based simplicity

We recognize that the school year has just begun, but with this new and exciting announcement of Chromebooks being supported, we want to ensure you and your students have a productive school year.  We will be conducting a “curbside” computer swap at the school on 10/5/2020.  Please refer to the instructions below to return and receive your student’s issued chromebook:

Computer collection and distribution (swap) will occur in our carpool line (side of gym).  Our plan is for you to remain in your vehicle.  Please continue to adhere to physical distancing guidance during pickup.
