Important Info: Chromebook Fines

Dear O'Keeffe Families,

Beginning October 18th, MMSD will reintroduce their chromebook and charger fine structure. There will be a $35 fee for lost or damaged chargers. There will be fees ranging from $50 - $150 for lost or damaged chromebooks. Please review the attached document for more information and reach out to us with any questions. If you know of any damaged or lost devices, please reach out to us this week so we can assist your scholar in replacing or repairing their device BEFORE the fine structure is implemented. Email our school librarian, Mindy Grant, at mlgrant2@madison.k12.wi.us or call our main office at (608) 204-6820.
