    Need an iPad or Chromebook for the 2021-22 year?

    Call the Main Office 874-6550 to set an appointment to have a device assigned to you.


    This will only be available to families that do not already have a device assigned to them.

    If your student left their device at school, it has been returned to IT to be cleaned and updated.

    In this case, you will need to sign a new device agreement and have a new device assigned to your student.


    Please click this link or visit the Parents tab on our website and read the agreement. This will make the process go smoothly when you come to school to have a new device assigned to you. We will have the agreements on hand here for you to sign.
