Dear WICSD families:

Please read below plans for student laptops this summer. Questions? Contact our Help Desk at (585) 336-3113 or christine_marriage@westiron.monroe.edu.

KINDERGARTEN: Current kindergarten students will not take their laptops home. These devices will be reimaged and repurposed for incoming kindergarteners. Families who would like their child(ren) to have access over the summer should contact out WICSD Technology Office (see info above). These will be loaner devices that need to be returned in September.

GRADES 1-11: Students will take their laptops and chargers home for the summer. They will need to bring them back in the fall.

GRADE 12: Seniors will turn their laptops and chargers into the DMRC (Room 1055) on June 13th in order to receive their ticket for their cap and gown. Anyone who misses that date, can turn them in on Friday, June 14th in the IHS Principal Conference Room. Families will be billed for unreturned laptops/chargers.

SUMMER PROGRAMMING: Students attending Extended School Year or Summer Lab should bring their laptops and chargers to those sessions. You should expect the laptop/charger to return home with the student at the end of the program.

2024-25 SCHOOL YEAR

  • Incoming 1st graders: New devices, chargers, and sleeves will be ready in your classrooms in the fall.
  • Incoming 5th graders: Fifth-graders will turn in their laptop/charger and receive a new laptop/charger early in the school year.
  • Incoming 9th graders: Freshmen will turn in their laptop/charger and receive a new laptop/charger during Freshman Orientation.
  • All other grades: Students will continue to use their current laptop/charger as part of our four-year life cycle. Students will receive updated password information after school starts.

LAPTOP CARE TIPS

  • Supervision: Each laptop is equipped with a CIPA-compliant internet filter. However, active supervision while students use their laptops remains the best way to guide appropriate use/behavior.
  • Updates & Maintenance: Over the summer, it’s recommended to turn on the laptops for several hours at least once a week to receive necessary updates.
