Chromebooks

We realize there may be some students that have changed their mind from last year regarding Chromebooks, late requests from last year or new students in our school that wish to get a Chromebook. Part of the Chromebook distribution process involves a Chromebook Loan Agreement which requires signatures of both the Parents/Guardians and Students.

To facilitate this process, and prior to Chromebook distribution, below are the Chromebook Loan Agreement and Chromebook Agreement Cover Letter. Parents/Guardians and Students must read and sign the Chromebook Loan Agreement in order for the Student to receive a Chromebook. Note: It is your choice to receive a Chromebook or not. It is up to families.

Lockdown/Secure School Procedures

Please note that in the event of a lockdown regular school procedures change totally. At the school we are unable to answer phones or the door. Essentially there is to be no one in or out during a lockdown. When it is possible, there will be communication with parents/guardians through Synrevoice, twitter or another mass communication method, although even this may not always be immediately possible. During a lockdown parents are NOT come to the school even though you may be aware that a lockdown is in progress. This is in the best interest of everyone’s safety as police will be securing the school. Similar to monthly fire drills, St. Kevin's practices lockdown drills periodically through the school year.
