Important Information

Information Regarding District Issued Devices

Dear Parents and Guardians:


All students at WSMSA will be issued a district device (students in 6th grade coming from an in-district elementary should already have one) . In years past, students were able to bring their own personal devices to school. Fortunately now, we are able to provide each student with a district issued Chromebook and charger. Using the Chromebooks provides many advantages. Each Chromebook is equipped with district approved apps. Also the Chromebooks are monitored for appropriate use keeping all students "cyber safe". When chromebooks fail or are damaged, our IT department can make repairs or issue a new device. We are not permitted to intervene with personal devices. Finally, the district issued devices have the secure browser for state testing. It is for these reasons that we would like students to use the district issued Chromebooks while in school. They can leave their personal devices home for personal use. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.


Respectfully,

Principal Blue
