We look forward to providing you a parental orientation to help prepare you for your child getting "1 to 1" access to their school issued Chromebook. This evening presentation is designed to give you the essential background to best understand how Chromebooks are used for learning and to clearly define the expectations for use between home and school. We anticipate many terrific questions and are eager to have a night to discuss together. The event will be held from 7:00 – 8:00 pm at the Board of Education office (25 LeRoy Avenue) on Thursday, September 27th. Know that we will digitally distribute the slides from the talk if you have a prior scheduling conflict.
