Our teachers are creating new learning opportunities for your students to start on April 13th. For grades 3-5, student learning will also be supported through the use of a reliable computer, laptop or Chromebook with Internet access. We do not recommend trying to complete work on a cell phone or IPad device. Students needing a device will be allowed to pick them up from a centralized site.  For ALL grades, K-5, instructional materials, including Reading materials will be available for pick up at each school site. The schedule for pick up of Instructional Materials and Chromebooks is as follows:

  • Instructional Material ALL GRADES K-5 pick up will be at your preschool, kindergarten or elementary school site on April 9 and 10. The pick up times are 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and 5:00 – 6:30 p.m. These materials will support learning on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday basis, through May 1st. Your child’s teacher and principal will provide additional communication specific to your school.
  • Student Chromebook pick up (Grades 3-5) for students at Abraham Lincoln, Douglas MacArthur, Glenns Valley, Henry Burkhart and Rosa Parks will be located at Perry Meridian Middle School.  Devices will be available on April 7 and 9 from 11a.m. – 1pm and 5:00 p.m – 6:30pm.   Enter into the Perry Academy parking lot off of State Road 135 for pick up. Please have your student in the vehicle with you to receive a device.  If you already have a reliable system at home, you do not need a student Chromebook.
