    • MDM (Mobile Device Management) profiles being removed from the devices
    • Broken screens
  • When we return from break there will be restrictions placed on iPads so we can get back on track. We recognize the need to use them for certain purpose so please read the following plan carefully:
    • Revisit routines and procedures for iPad use
    • Review the AUP and hold students accountable for keeping the devices from being damaged
    • Rename devices with student first name, last name, room number, this will be checked through Mosyle
    • if you have shared cart codes with students, please contact heather or Roel to reset it.

Also, our Middle School Applications and DI Interest Forms are now available online! The office staff has been supportive of the new processes and is helping parents to navigate them!

Information

  • Tech: We have continued receiving a large number of devices with broken screens or damaged covers. When we return from break, we will all need to work together to go back over routines and procedures for using the iPads correctly. This means that our first week back from spring break will be spent without devices so that we can focus on routines and procedures for how to handle technology. We will follow up with more strategies and resources and giving more specific information as we get closer.
  • iPads: iPads should not leave the classroom for students in elementary school unless requested by RSP, this includes students working outside on the ramps with iPads. We have had a significant increase in broken and lost iPads, please help by remaindering your students.
  • Tutoring: If you are interested in tutoring after-school there is an opportunity to get paid! Please see the coaches for the form, you’ll need to fill it out and turn in regular attendance.
  • Donors Choose: Last week, we had several emails with Donors Choose requests! A school wide project will be put up on the site this week using your requests. If you have other flexible seating supples you would like added, please send Heather a link!
