Students/teachers using laptops
Several teachers assign tasks for students to complete on their laptops or to use the Gaggle.net e-mail accounts to complete group work.
Assistant Principal Glenda Meeks reminds students and parents that a few have not returned their paperwork needed to pick up their laptops.
If a parent does not want his or her child to have a laptop, Meeks needs the forms returned with “declined” written across it and signed by the parent.
