For Students: Return to School Technology

All middle school students will be expected to come to school with a fully charged APS issued iPad. Personal devices are not permitted and will not be supported. If you have been using a personal device during distance learning, you should start using your APS iPad to get used to the device before returning to the building. Students with APS laptops issued to them for robotics and coding classes may bring them to school. If you believe you have a physical issue with your APS issued device, you should follow the usual procedure at your school to begin the repair process as soon as possible. Please do NOT wait until you return to the building since it may take longer to resolve. Students should also bring and be prepared to use personal headphones inside the building. As a reminder, students use their ID number and MyAccess passwords to connect to the Internet inside school buildings. Make sure you know this information. Please make sure that you label your iPad and your chargers as you bring them to school in order to prevent loss and confusion. If you have any questions, please reach out to your TA teacher as a first step.
