Update: Technology Distribution and Repair by Appointment

 

October 27, 2020
 
 
Dear Parent/Guardian(s),
 
We are writing to share updated information about technology device distribution and repair.
 
As a reminder, before the start of school in August, we announced that the district is providing one-to-one student technology devices for ALL students (iPads for PK-1st grade and Chromebooks for 2-12th grade).
 
When in-person learning is available, students will be expected use and bring their district-issued devices with them for in-person learning. We are encouraging all parents to please make time to pick up your student’s device.
 
We are also committed to working with families to ensure students have access to reliable internet service (wireless hotspots or donor-sponsored Comcast Internet Essentials).
 
Please schedule an appointment by calling 616-301-1111:

  • If you need to pick up your student’s device
  • If you need assistance with internet access
  • If you need repairs to your student’s device

 
The dates/times for the Technology Service Center have changed. Starting the week of October 26, the Technology Service Center is open: 

  • Tuesdays from 9:00 a.m. to Noon.
  • Thursdays from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
  • Thursdays from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. 

 
The Technology Service Center is located at Franklin Campus Early Childhood Center (1326 Thomas St. SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49506).
 
Thank you again for your continued patience, understanding, and support.
 
Sincerely,
 
Leadriane Roby, Ph.D.
Superintendent of Schools
