Q: Will the internet be filtered on the learner’s iPad’s?
A: The iPad’s will be on the same network when they are at school as the rest of the school’s computers. While we do our best, please keep in mind that no internet filtering is 100% effective.
Q: What happens if my iPad gets damaged or broken?
A: If an iPad is damaged or breaks, the IT Dept must be notified within 48 hours so that an insurance claim can be started right away. Parents are responsible for paying the $40 insurance deductible at time of claim for the repair. There are terms and conditions to your insurance policy that you need to be aware of.
To contact the IT Dept, please email firstname.lastname@example.org

Q: What happens if my iPad is lost or stolen?
A: Unfortunately loss and theft is not covered under your insurance plan. Please review with your child the importance of bringing his/her iPad home with him nightly and stored in his backpack when not in use. iPads should never be left out unattended or left at school overnight.
Q: Can my child charge his iPad at school?
A: iPads have an amazing battery life that can get them through the school day without needing to be charged. Students are responsible for charging their iPads at home and bringing them to school prepared. It is not recommended that they carry their chargers with them as they might get lost.
