Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are seeking to get technology into the hands of our students so they may continue their studies during this time. We are looking at distributing Chromebooks to families who may need some technology to be able to connect with their teachers and other educational resources.
To help us prepare for the need in our community, please fill out the form below. This will help us anticipate the needs of our community and allow us to prepare accordingly. We will be able to provide a Chromebook for each student who needs one, so if you need more than one let us know.
For Chromebooks to be effective, they require an internet connection to get any course work or to collaborate as needed. This can be done by internet access in your home, a hotspot, through public wifi, etc. While we are providing technology free of charge at this time, the condition of the equipment will be expected to be the same as it was checked out, any damages or loss incurred may be charged to your Skyward account for repair or replacement.
Equipment check out will be April 2nd, 3rd, 6th, 7th, and 8th from 10 am until 2 pm at Stratton Elementary School. Unfortunately, we will be unable to distribute these via our current food distribution points. To check out Chromebooks, we will need either parental signatures or the student to be 18 years old if self-signing.
All equipment owned by Newport School District is subject to our Policies and Procedures, if you have any questions you can refer to the links below, or email us at GrizIT@newportgriz.com
