    On-Site Learning Lab Opportunities

    We are providing on-site access to technology that will be supervised and monitored by our support staff. This is NOT a replacement for virtual instruction as provided by your child’s classroom teacher or other specialist. This IS a supervised time for students to come on campus in a limited capacity (to maintain social distancing and other mitigation efforts) where they can use site technology to join classroom instruction and complete homework as assigned.

    The lab is designed to offer support to those needing access to technology during this virtual time. If you choose to take advantage of the on-site learning lab, we ask that you not also request a device be checked out for home use. Likewise, if you request a device for home use (and receive one) we ask that you not sign your children up for on-site lab opportunities. We are working with a limited number of devices and limited on-site capacity and are trying our best to support the unique needs of each family.

    The link to sign up for on-site lab opportunities is below. Please note you must sign your child(ren) up for each time slot individually. Directions and clarification are provided in the sign-up link below.

    Open Lab Links: (Please note: Lab access is limited to 50 students in each AM and PM session and are filled on a first come, first served basis)
