Seniors will wrap up their high school career today with final exams in periods 5-8.

All Seniors are required to go through the end of the year iPad checkout after school in the LL Gray Gym. Students may turn in their iPad early to the LTC Help Desk during lunch if they no longer need it for testing during periods after lunch. Students must allow at least 15 minutes for the iPad return process.

All students must turn in their school issued iPad with the school issued iPad case, power adapter, and power/sync cable. The iPad Return Checklist must be completed, signed by a parent/guardian, and turned in with the iPad today. It is important to note that you will be charged the deductible/repair cost for broken devices as well as replacement cost for any missing items. Families who chose the Deposit Protection Plan will be charged for all damages to the iPad and accessories not covered under warranty.

In summary, bring the following to the LL Gray gym between 3:00 ­ 4:30pm today:
