PPE Technology Notes
Thank you so much for sending in laptops, cords, and hotspots over the past few weeks as we sync our inventory and make sure every student has a laptop!
New This Year: K, 1st, and 2nd grade students will not bring laptops home with them. The teachers have each been given a laptop cart where they can keep students laptops charged and ready to go. 3rd and 4th grade students will be bringing their laptops back and forth at their teacher’s discretion. You do not need to have a MNPS laptop to log into Lexia and iReady at home. They can be accessed on any web browser by going to Clever here.
Please send in any additional laptop charging cords, hotspots (unless needed by your family), laptops, and laptop cases as soon as possible. Thank you!
