Chromebook Repair Fines

If you have incurred a fine from damage to your chromebook, you must pay the fine by the end of this week to maintain possession of your chromebook.  Friday afternoon, we will reclaim the loaner chromebooks used while personal chromebooks are out for repair.  You will be without a school issued device until you make payment for your damages. 

Technology announcements:

6th and 7th Grade MS Students - We will not be checking in Chromebooks over the summer.  If you have any equipment issues with your Chromebook, please stop by the Middle School Library  as soon as possible to get those repairs done prior to the end of the school year. (Any screen cracks, screen detachments, plastic cracks/breaks, etc… need to be fixed ASAP.) This will also make sure you have a usable Chromebook for over the summer. (Remember to take good care of your Chromebook, you will be able to purchase these at a discounted price when you graduate.) If you are planning on leaving the district, please check in your Chromebook prior to leaving.

Since this is a school-issued device, remember that all internet and other device usages will continue to be monitored over the summer and addressed with school administration and parents.  Please keep the devices charged over the summer. Letting devices sit with a dead battery will ruin your device.


8th grade students (Or any student leaving the district.) - You will be checking in your Chromebook before the end of the school year on Friday, May 19th. We will start this process of turning in Chromebooks on Thursday, May 18th. You will need to have your Chromebook (With stylus) and charger in proper working order and ready for check in on that day.  If you have any damages to the Chromebook or charger (Or missing your Stylus.)  make sure you get these repaired ASAP by visiting the MS Media Center.  Any damages that are not fixed before the 18th will be assessed an additional late damage fee of $10  (in addition to the cost of repairs). Avoid the extra fee by getting your device repaired ASAP!

If you have any fines going into your freshman year from not paying for a damaged Middle School Unit, you will not receive a High School Chromebook until it is resolved. If you are leaving the district, your records will not be released to your new school until fees are paid.
