  • HAC will be turned off on Wednesday, December 19th

     
    Home Access Center (HAC) will be turned off Wednesday, December 19th at 8AM  and will be turned back on Friday, January 11th at 4:00 pm. First semester grades will be available on HAC on Friday, January 11th after 4:00 pm.
     
    Why is Home Access Center (HAC) inaccessible?
    ·        All grades must be electronically processed and checked for errors and incompletes.
    ·        Turning off HAC while grades are checked for accuracy ensures that families don’t see a grade before it has been verified as correct.
    ·        Since teachers submit their grades at different times, if HAC is left on, students and families become concerned that something is wrong if some grades appear but others are missing in HAC.
    ·        Deactivating HAC as grades are submitted over several weeks and then turning it back on once all grades are submitted limit confusion while guaranteeing that all students have access to their grades at the same time.

  • Chromebook Reminder

     
    It is essential during the holiday break to leave your Chromebook charging at all times when not in use.
    Please charge your Chromebook nightly to ensure the battery life maintains its maximum performance. Battery life is extended when the Chromebook is consistently charged, and for no less than 30 minutes at a time. Leaving the Chromebooks plugged in for 6 hours allows the battery to recalibrate and take a full charge.

    Chromebook Loaner Information

     

    Based on feedback from teachers, students, and members of the TSI program, we have decided to make some changes regarding the distribution of “loaner” Chromebooks.

    Beginning November 12th, students will no longer be issued loaner Chromebooks before school. Instead, students will need teacher permission prior to receiving a loaner Chromebook. Loaner Chromebooks will still be provided for hardware issues (damaged/faulty Chromebooks). It is our hope that this small change will help us better allocate loaners to students that need them (and pinpoint frequent borrowers).

     

    Beginning on January 8, 2019, loaners will only be issued in cases of damaged/faulty Chromebooks. This change will help shift the responsibility of remembering to bring a fully-charged Chromebook to school to students. While this may be a bit challenging, at first, we are confident that students can develop responsible charging habits. (Consider that students rarely forget to charge their cell phones!)

     

    If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Assistant Principal, Ryan Maita.
