  • 8th Grade iPad Update

    Posted by Christine Spurling at 9/15/2017

    8th graders have now had their iPads for about 3 weeks and things seem to be going well.  Here are a few reminders for 8th graders

    • The 8th grade keyboard case does not have removable keycaps. Students should not take the key caps off of the keyboard as it will damage them from being used.
    • If you haven’t created a charging station and plan at home to charge, please set this up with your student.
    • Teachers are expecting the iPads to be charged so they are prepared for class each day.
    • If your student hasn’t updated their iOS to 10.3.3 please ask them to do so. We are finding that this update is solving a lot of the issues we are having with iPads.

    • Students should always carry their iPad with BOTH parts of their case attached for maximum protection.

    Students may bring in iPads before school during morning study hall from 7:05 – 7:21 am each morning for iPad help.  Please contact the media center with any comments or concerns you have with your students iPad.

  • 6th and 7th Grade iPad Deployment

    Posted by Christine Spurling at 9/15/2017

     We are pleased to say that the new iPads have arrived for 6th and 7th grade students. They will be checked out next week during the student’s weekly library visits with their English Language Arts teacher. Here is some quick information about the iPads:

    • Students will receive an iPad, protective case, cable and brick.
    • All students will be bringing their new charger home. Please look for it and have them keep the charger at home.
    • Create a “charging station” where students can get in the routine of charging the iPad each afternoon/night so it will be ready for school the next day.
    • Teachers expect students to come with their iPads fully charged, but do have charging stations in the classroom when needed for emergencies.
    • Students should leave their iPad in the school issued case and will be expected to return the iPad, Case, Brick and Cable and the end of the year.
    • The iPads will be issued to a different student next year, so they should not personalize the case in any way.  All iPads have labels with the student’s name on them.

    Students may bring in iPads before school during morning study hall from 7:05 – 7:21 am each morning for iPad help.  Please contact the media center with any comments or concerns you have with your students iPad.
