Dear Parents/Guardians/Staff,We are working diligently to ensure that our students have access to a computing device during this unprecedented time. To that end, we will be distributing loaner laptops to our high school students in need tomorrow. Each family/student will be given a loaner device. You will be contacted by a school official prior to Wednesday with instructions regarding time, location, and proper identification to receive the device. Subsequently, we anticipate distributing additional loaner devices each Wednesday through the month of April per designated K-8 Schools.
Yours for the Sake of All Children,
Dr. Kenneth R. Hamilton
