Chromebook Pickup & Orientation Changes

Chromebooks and Technology

Any 7th graders or new-to-the-District 8th graders who need a District-issued Chromebook should plan on picking one up on Wednesday, September 2 in the front circle of South East, 2501 Bradford Drive. Times:

Last Name A-K, 5:00-6:00 PM

Last Name L-Z, 6:00-7:00 PM

If you are not able to pick up your District-issued Chromebook during this time, please let us know so we can make other arrangements. 

All students who already have a District-issued Chromebook should plan on using that same one this year. If you need a repair, please email the help desk at helpdesk@iowacityschools.org

Please check out the technology newsletter that we sent last week! This has important information for being able to access needed technology to start the year!

Orientation

Given that we are now starting the year online, we are unable to host the in-person student orientation that we had planned for Thursday, September 3. We hope to be able to reschedule this closer to when we are able to return to the building.

We will be planning another opportunity for parents and students this week to get information on how school will now look given that we are starting online. We will send information out on this opportunity soon. This would be great for all students to log into as well as parents. Please make sure your student knows how to check their district email! This is going to be a critical form of communication as we begin the year.

Schedules

We are working as fast as we can on having schedules created. We hope to have these ready no later than Thursday 9/3. I will send an email as soon as schedules are ready to be viewed in PowerSchool.

Thank you so much for your patience, and please reach out anytime you have questions. We are dedicated to making this an excellent year regardless of the format we find ourselves in.
