Chromebook Distribution starts August 29th. Parents, please sign the Responsible Use Policy online, if at all possible, prior to the 29th. The RUP can be accessed via Parent Portal. Click on Email Notifications on the left-hand side of the screen and scroll down to the bottom of the page. There you will find a link to the RUP and box to check off to digitally acknowledge that you have read it and agree with the terms. Students were given paper copies of the RUP in Homeroom on the first day of school. Students can bring a signed paper copy as well. The information about where to turn in the paper copy is at the bottom of the page that they got in class.
The Lenovo Thinkpad X131e will be the Chromebook issued by SVHS. The Lenovo ThinkPad Chromebook is a rugged laptop built to withstand enthusiastic typing, bustling group work, and other everyday school adventures. Designed with specialized classroom features like reinforced hinges and a rubber casing, students and teachers can work hard and play hard. Students using a school-issued device will also receive a carrying case.
Students do not have to use a school-issued device. Students are free to bring any device they may already own or wish to purchase, Chromebook or otherwise. The device needs to be able to connect to wifi. Parents and students must sign the appropriate Responsible Use Policy (RUP) and/or Personal Electronic Communication Devices forms before they are allowed to use any devices at the school. Appropriate forms and additional information will be made available to families via the internet and in class on the first day of school.
