Dear Principals:

We also continue to post letters like this one on the family site.

iPad Distribution:
The week of April 6: we will focus on delivery to high school students, focusing on multilingual learner students, students with disabilities, and students who live in public housing. iPads will be distributed on a rolling basis with new shipments arriving and being staged each week. Students who have requested an iPad, but are not in the above groups, will be eligible to receive iPads after deliveries have been made to the above groups.

Individual Deliveries
Our courier will reach out to you to confirm the delivery address you entered on the request form. Your iPad will be shipped to the address you entered on the request form. If you have already filled out the request form, you will receive a text message or email making sure you have completed the Student Device Loan Agreement. Please complete the agreement when you request a device as your device cannot be shipped unless you have signed the agreement.

Please keep a copy of the confirmation email or text that you received, as you will need it to show FedEx when they deliver your device.

Please make sure someone is at the address to accept the delivery, as FedEx will not leave packages unattended.
Also, FedEx carriers will adhere to social distancing rules.
