If your Chromebook is not working, try turning it on an off again. We know it sounds like an IT joke, but it really does work. Sometimes a restart is required to get a new setting to work.

Looking for this year's school supply list? Stop looking, because it does not exist. We know times are stressful with COVID so we used our donations from Amazon to purchase the following for each student: 1) Earbuds with microphone for online learning 2) Neck buff (for when we return to onsite hybrid instruction) In addition, each student will have a Chromebook checked out for his/her/their use. A mouse is available for Kinder and first grade students and students with special needs for whom operating the mousepad on the Chromebook is challenging. Also, basic supplies (pencils, pens, crayons, paper, etc.) will be on meal buses. If you need a supply, just ask at meal delivery. If projects require additional supplies, they'll be sent home on buses as well.
