The school year is ending, but the learning continues! Many families have expressed an interest in supporting their child’s educational growth this summer. In response, the district is pleased to be sending devices home for many students and connecting families to meaningful resources and learning experiences. Through this plan, the district can provide equitable access to the digital resources Orono students enjoy all year long.
Please review the following instructions for your child’s current grade/school:
Grades K-1: Please keep your iPad over the summer. You will also use it for the 2021-22 school year through Grade 2.
Grade 2: Please keep your iPad over the summer. In the fall, you will return your iPad and receive a school-issued Chromebook for Grades 3-5 at IS.
Grades 3-4: Please keep your Chromebook over the summer. You will also use it for the 2021-22 school year and through Grade 5.
Grade 5: Please return your Chromebook on the last day of school. You can purchase a BYOD or request a school-issued Chromebook from Orono Middle School. More information will be coming this summer regarding this process.
Grades 6-11: Please keep your school-issued device over the summer. You will use this device for the 2021-22 school year and through Grade 12.
