All of our students will be 1:1 on iPads for the 2016-2017 school year. Make sure that you have turned in your iCoverage paperwork and 15.00 to the school. This can be paid online. This covers damage that might occur at home or at school. One thing it does NOT cover is water damage, so please remind students about their water bottles being in their backpacks with their devices!
Ipads will only come home during MP 1 for assigned homework tasks, and then beginning in MP2 the devices will be coming home on a more regularly scheduled basis.
