Any family checking out a device will be required to sign a release before they are issued a Chromebook.  One Chromebook per family will be issued.  You must come to the school to check out a device.  If you are unable to come during your time, please call the office to make arrangements.  

If families choose not to use computer-based learning while schools are closed, packets of instructional materials are also available at your child’s school.  Packets and other materials, as well as, locker contents can be picked up during the same time frame as their assigned Chromebook distribution.

Be prepared to possibly wait due to complying with only 10 people in each building at one time.  Only ONE parent or guardian per family will be allowed into the building.  

During this time, teachers and office staff will be reaching out via phone.  Please expect phone calls from unfamiliar numbers.  

Meal distribution will continue Monday thru Friday using the same schedule and drop off locations as used during the March 16-20th week.  Meals are available at the cafeteria from 9-10 am and Wolter’s Park, Blinn College, and Clark’s Trailer Park from 9:15-9:45 am.  If you are unable to pick up a meal during this time, please call the office to schedule delivery.
