A Note About Chromebooks for In-Person and Virtual Students:

Instead of having Chromebooks and computers housed in each classroom, this year WHHS students will be issued Chromebooks that they carry with them throughout the school day and take home each evening. Students will need to bring their charged Chromebook (or comparable personal device) with them to school each day in order to participate in In-person classroom learning, and students will have that Chromebook to use at home on days that they are not at the school. Before we can check out a Chromebook to a student, a parent or guardian MUST sign an Acceptable Use Agreement.

It is our goal to issue each student a Chromebook as quickly as possible for the first days of school. Please complete the following instructions prior to Monday and Tuesday (depending on when your student is scheduled to come):

  1. Please activate your Parent Portal account on Infinite Campus. You will need this to fill out the “Student Mobile Computing Device Checkout Agreement” online. If you need assistance with your Parent Portal account, please email Diane Cressey at diane.cressey@hallco.org.

  2. Once you can access Parent Portal on Infinite Campus, please fill out the “Student Mobile Computing Device Checkout Agreement” online. Instructions on how to complete this form can be found by clicking here (Instructions are also on the WHHS website).

  3. If you do not have access to your Parent Portal account and need to fill out a paper copy, please print one out at: https://www.hallco.org/web/acceptable-user-agreement/. It will require a student signature and parent signature. If you print out a paper copy, please have your student bring it to school.

  4. If you have your own device that you will be able to bring to school every day, you may opt out of receiving a Chromebook with the same form (online or paper). Please note the device must meet the requirements and not be a smart phone.

  5. Virtual students can continue to pick up Chromebooks by appointment only via Sign Up Genius (https://tinyurl.com/whvirtualsignup1). Please fill out the "Student Mobile Computing Device Checkout Agreement" prior to signing up. Appointments are in the afternoon only from August 25-August 28 and on August 31). Please e-mail rachel.lawley@hallco.org with any questions.

If you have any questions about this process, please contact Rachel Lawley at rachel.lawley@hallco.org. More information can be found at whhs.hallco.org.
