  1. Chromebook & Hot Spot Return - It’s hard to believe that we’ve made it through a whole YEAR of remote learning! We only have one more remote day left, so it’s time to start returning Chromebooks and Hot Spots for the year. 

We will begin taking back Chromebooks and Hot Spots starting next Thursday, May 20th. Students can bring these items to school and return them to the office for check-in. We will continue the check-in process for students through Monday, May 24th. Parents may also return items until 4:00pm on Monday, May 24th after our 2pm dismissal. 

**If you do not have a need for your Chromebook or Hot Spot for the last remote day, those items can also be returned early anytime starting today.**


  1. Lunch Accounts - The ending of the school year is just around the corner and all lunch account balances need to be looked over. 

All breakfast and lunches are still free for any student 18 years and younger with the exception of milk break at the grade schools. Milk break is $0.40 and water bottles at the high school are $1.25. 

You can look up your lunch account balance under your family Skyward account.
