As we bring back more students for in-person instruction, we will begin our elementary laptop collection program. Our students will use the laptops for classroom instruction once they are returned and checked in at the school. Penn Forest will be collecting the pk-4th grade students’ assigned laptops beginning on March 23. On that day in-person students in grades pk-4 with the exception of students receiving special education services are being asked to bring back the laptop or laptops assigned to their family.
We are asking that families make every effort to return pk-4 laptops on March 23 as the school is assigned additional staff that day only to assist with the collection and check-in. Laptops may be dropped off in the car rider line before or after school. Additionally, they can be dropped off between 8:00 and 1:00 on March 23.
All laptops should be either returned in the case provided if issued or bagged in a shopping bag with the charger and student’s name included. This is very important as we want to make sure that these are logged under the correct child’s name as families can be charged for computers, chargers and cases that are not returned to the school at the end of the year.
Please note that all new 4th grade laptops have a specific charger that needs to be returned with that laptop. Both have identical numbers assigned to them on the label. These laptops may be taken directly to the classroom as they will be used by the teachers for instruction on a daily basis.
If your child is in 5th grade or if they receive special education services, they should keep the new laptops at this time for use at home until a date which will be provided closer to the end of the school year.
Thank you for all that you have done throughout the school year to support your students. We appreciate your assistance in collecting these laptops from home. Additional information will follow after the break about the collection of the 5th grade laptops and those that fully virtual students are using.
