    Distribution times each day: 11am-1pm and 4pm-6pm


    As we prepare for remote learning in Plan C, we are asking that each parent or student complete the student technology information survey to help us determine which students will need a laptop and internet access to complete assignments and participate in remote instruction. Families that want to provide their own device are encouraged to do so and will be able to access all assignments provided by teachers throughout the district. If you have any issues completing this form, please contact the school for assistance. We are working to finalize a distribution schedule and will share that information when it is available. Please complete the survey no later than noon on Tuesday, August 11th.


    Mientras nos preparamos para el aprendizaje remoto en el Plan C, estamos pidiendo que cada padre o estudiante complete la Encuesta de información tecnológica del estudiante para ayudarnos a determinar qué estudiantes necesitarán una computadora portátil y acceso a Internet para completar las tareas y participar en la instrucción. Se alienta a las familias que desean proporcionar su propio dispositivo a hacerlo y podrán acceder a todas las tareas proporcionadas por los maestros en todo el distrito. Si tiene algún problema para completar este formulario, comuníquese con la escuela para obtener ayuda. Estamos trabajando para finalizar un cronograma de distribución y compartiremos esa información cuando esté disponible. Complete esta encuesta antes del mediodía del martes 11 de agosto.
