    Families, this long message is being presented to you so that you will know in advance what to expect, and we will need from you. Above all things, your support and patience will be needed during the process. The team will do their best to make the process the least painstaking as possible.

    Internet Service
    Based on your completion of the technology survey, you will receive an internet code by mail.

    To ensure that there is a continuous flow to the distribution process, the staff will not be able to answer questions or hold discussions on-site. Their job is to ensure that students who need one receive a Chromebook, and return home per the Governor's stay-at-home order. We ask that you please email Mr. Durkin or me any questions you have and we will be happy to answer them for you. Additionally, please be advised that the school building will not be accessible to visitors.

    Thank you in advance!
