Power
Gr. PK-2: Students need to bring their own power cord to campus, as batteries may not last through the entire school day. Power cords will be stored in the classroom charging stations during the school year. Devices will primarily remain on campus, but will be sent home with chargers during school breaks. 

Gr. 3-8: Devices will travel from campus to home daily. Devices must be charged at home and brought to school fully charged. Students may bring their own power cords to campus, as batteries may not last through the entire school day.

*We recommend purchasing 2 chargers, one for the students to leave at school (PK-2) or travel with (3-8), and one for home.
