    Technology Roll Out:  I now have enough information to share our distribution plan.  As far as iPads, they will not be delivered to us until Tuesday or Wednesday as there was a delay on delivery to SPS.  While we acquired laptops this summer, we did not receive batteries.  They finally came today, but we are still short 20 computers.  In short, we will not be able to deliver devices until next week based on the plan below.  I know this means some of you will be using your own devices, and I am truly sorry.  

    In preparation for the distribution of technology to students, below you will find the schedule as well as Safety Protocols and Procedures required by SPS.  Kindergarten, First and Second grades will use the iPads. The Third, Forth and Fifth grades will use the Chromebooks.
    K-5 Families will have access to pick up devices at Loyal Heights as follows:

    Retrieving Chromebooks and iPads 

    • Families will follow designated technology pick-up times according to last name 
    • If you cannot make the scheduled time, please contact Ms. Blangy at ccblangy@seattleschools.org. We can arrange alternative pick up times that coincide with pickup of classroom supplies and materials. 
    • Please contact Ms. Sanchez at elsanchez1@seattleschools.org if the schedule, days and times do not work for your family and we can support you. 
    • To speed up the process, here is the Parent/Student Agreement form you can fill out and bring.  Choose the language in the drop-down menu.  Print, sign, bring.  You don't need to print the other forms but will use the same link for more information about the computers.  

    Pick Up Location and Safety 

    • We will use the covered area outside the main entrance of Loyal Heights. 
    • All parents will be required to wear masks. Please bring/wear your own mask. Limited masks will be available at the entrance should you forget.  
    • In order to keep staff and families safe, we ask that whenever possible, only one adult per family picks-up items. 
    • Social distancing guidelines will be in place at all times (6 feet apart).  
    • Please avoid congregating and socializing together after pickup. 
    • A box of “clean” pens will be separated out from a box of “contaminated” pens.  
    • Hand sanitizer will be readily available 

    Bring Your Own Device Information 

    • If you would prefer to use your own device rather than being issued a district laptop, please complete the attached “Bring Your Own Device Form” and send it to Ms. Blangy.  Bring Your Own Device Agreement 
    • If you have questions about bringing your own device, please see the attached FAQ.  Bring Your Own Device FAQ 

    Thank you for your patience and understanding as we start the year. 

    Sincerely,

    Principal Michael Berkenwald
