Student Devices

Current K - 7th Grade Students
Current Kindergarten through 7th-grade students will keep their district-issued device throughout the Summer. If Illinois schools are instructed to start the 2020-21 school year implementing distance learning, students will continue using their issued out devices.

Note: Our Technology Department will provide future communications with current Kindergarten and 1st grades regarding required device swaps over the Summer.
