Device Exchange

Dear Pre-K and Kindergarten Parents,

To ensure that pre-k and kindergarten scholars have devices that will enhance their daily learning experience, we will exchange the tablets scholars are currently using for Chromebooks.  Devices will be available for pick up on Saturday, August 22 from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.

As a service to scholars and parents, the Chromebook will have login information for Canvas and the various other learning platforms already stored on the device when you receive it.  Parents will need to return the tablet and charger and sign the Computer Device Loan Agreement for Chromebooks and choose whether to have the device insurance to receive the new device.

Here is a blank copy of the Computer Device Loan Agreement for Chromebooks for reference.

====================================================

Dear Parents,

I would like to take this opportunity to officially welcome all new parents to the AOS community and say welcome back to all returning parents.  Thank you for your assistance on the first day of school.  Parents serving as learning coaches will be instrumental to the success of scholars and we sincerely appreciate your efforts.

When we decided to begin the 2020 -2021 school year virtually, we did so with the intention of providing an exceptional learning experience using the Google Nexus tablets for our pre-kindergarten and kindergarten scholars.  Unfortunately, we discovered right away the tablets do not meet the AOS standard or provide the standard of excellence our scholars deserve.  To ensure our pre-k and kindergarten scholars have devices which will enhance their daily learning experience, we will exchange the tablets scholars currently have for Chromebooks.

The Chromebook will have login information for Canvas and the various other learning platforms already stored on the device when you receive it.  Parents will need to return the tablet and charger and sign the Computer Device Loan Agreement for Chromebooks and choose whether to have the device insurance to receive the new device.

We will provide further communication concerning the exchange pick-up schedule.

Blessings,

Dr. Stacy Lambert-Johnson
