There have been a few changes to our technology collection plan this week – please read the following changes carefully:
2nd Grade Student iPad Collection – UPDATED
We will no longer be collecting iPads from 2nd graders this week. We hope this change will enable students to utilize the devices over the summer months. The District will be scheduling a 2nd grade iPad collection/Chromebook exchange in early August. Additional details regarding this will be communicated later in the summer.
Student Google Accounts – UPDATED
The District has decided to keep ALL current K-7th grade student accounts active so devices will be functional during the summer months. With community libraries still closed, the devices can be utilized for students to continue reading over the summer. We are asking parents to be diligent in monitoring student device usage to ensure they are being utilized for appropriate purposes.
Device Collection on Friday for Non-Returning Students – UPDATED
We will still be collecting district devices (Chromebooks/iPads with chargers) from any student who will not be returning to Nerge or a District 54 school in the fall. The drive-thru for all non-returning students is Friday, May 29th from 11:30-12:30 PM. If you are the parent of a 2nd grade student and you still want to turn in your child’s iPad on Friday instead of keeping it for the summer, you can utilize the drive-thru device drop-off between 11:30-12:30 PM. Your child will be issued a Chromebook in early August.
Student Materials Pick Up
If you were not able to pick up your child’s materials last week, you can visit Nerge on Friday between 10:00-11:00 AM. We will be in front of the school, so you can drive up to return materials to Nerge and pick up your child’s supplies that were left in the classroom.
