Distance Learning and Chromebook Management

Grab and Go Breakfasts and Lunches will be provided for all F2F students at the school.  All meals are free.  

If your new Chromebook 3100 won't charge, it might have gone into deep sleep.  This happens when the battery is completely discharged.  To charge, plug the charger in, press the power button and the refresh button (the key with the circular arrow above the #4 key) simultaneously, and it should start charging in 15 minutes or so.  Note there are several notices given when a battery is low and you should always turn the chromebook off when not in use, so there is no excuse for your chromebook to go into deep sleep mode.

Comcast has opened up its commercial hotspots to the public.  Residential wifi access has not been unlocked.  If you are interested in subscribing to low cost internet service from Comcast, information can be found on the District's website.  Please note that many service plans from Comcast limit the number of connected devices.  Connect a couple of student chromebooks, parent laptops, printers, and phones, and soon you are unable to connect any more devices.  If you can't connect to your Comcast wifi, start with a device count!
