Hello Families,

To those families who received a confirmation phone call or e-mail from your child’s teacher, we will be deploying the first phase of Chromebooks tomorrow between 1:00 and 3:00 p.m.

Please note the following:

  • Arrive at the school and pull into a parking spot between 1:00 and 3:00 Friday
  • We can only have a few staff interacting so this will take time
  • Chromebooks have been assigned by last name
  • Grocery style delivery to your car:  Chromebook is placed in the trunk of the car.
  • Social distancing is maintained at all times
  • Each Chromebook will be sent home with a “Self-Help” information sheet, which Computer Services has provided
  • A Self-Help FAQ will be posted on our WCDSB@Home webpage
  • A support line will be set up through the Help Desk (computer techs) – if all else fails but may be slower in responding.
  • There will be a process for returning a Chromebook if it does not work and a new one needs to be deployed – more info to come

There will be a phase 2 deployment next week as we continue to collect information on more families who need a device.

In addition – we are collecting SEA equipment for those students and families. We hope to deploy these devices as part of phase 2 next week.

We thank you for your patience as we work hard to get all these devices safely out to you.

Kindly,

St. Anne school staff
