Good Afternoon DGH Community,
If your family borrowed technology (usually a Chromebook) for use during remote learning between January 4 and 22, we are asking that this be brought back by your child on Monday, January 25.
I recognize that this is not an ideal situation for all students and families. Backpacks can be jammed fairly full with all of the regular items that students bring to school on a daily basis, so there often is not a great deal of space left over.
Try to place the Chromebook in the backpack as safely as possible. Chromebooks will be collected in the morning after students arrive and returned to the classroom from which they were taken. We have tracked where each of the devices came from and our goal is to return to that classroom and/or student. We have already created a process for gathering and disinfecting devices prior to being returned to the correct classroom.
We know that some families may be concerned that their child(ren) may not safely return the Chromebook safely to school. So long as you are able to drop the Chromebook off on Monday, January 25 (preferably earlier rather than later), it would be fine for a family member to bring the Chromebook in that way. Simply call the office at 705-786-1915 when you arrive at the school and Ms. Starr or Mrs. Taylor will pick it up from the cart when you drop it off.
Thank you to Mrs. Taylor for so efficiently getting technology out to families while remote learning was taking place. Thank you also to our families who picked up technology so efficiently. It felt like a very smooth process overall.
