Technology Questions for Parents/Guardians

Schools need to hear from all parents/guardians as soon as possible about whether a student needs a loaner laptop for virtual learning (or already has a laptop or computer to use), and if the student has access to the internet at home.

For each school, information is provided below on how to provide technology responses. Many of the school names are links to online surveys for school families, while some schools are collecting responses by email or phone.

Thank you for taking the time to respond promptly to the school or schools that serve your family.
