Parent Message 6/1

Good evening Raiders and happy last week of school!  Please listen carefully to the following items:  

Chromebooks will be collected from all 8th grade students leaving for high school and any current Githens student who is transferring to a different school for Fall 2021, including the DPS Ignite Online Academy, charter or private schools, or DPS magnet schools, on Friday, June 4 and Monday, June 7.  Please note, scholars are required to log in and participate in classes, including answering their Wellness Wednesday questions, until Friday at 12:20 when summer break officially begins.

To clarify, only outgoing students not returning to Githens in August will turn in their assigned DPS devices, chargers and hotspots on Friday, June 4 and Monday, June 7.  The collection location is the Githens carpool lane between 8:00 am and 1:00 pm.  Families will remain in their vehicle while a staff member assists with the return. 

8th Grade In Person Learners should bring all equipment with them to school on Friday June 4th and a staff member will collect items while they are in their classrooms.  All Remote 8th grade scholars can return their devices before or after the promotion celebrations in the front carpool lane between 8:00 – 1:00pm, depending on which time frame was selected. 

The laptop must be returned along with the charger and hotspot.  Per DPS, each device and adapter should be cleaned according to the following cleaning tips:

  • Use a lint-free cloth, such as a screen wipe or a cloth made from microfiber.

  • Avoid excessive wiping and submerging each item in cleanser to avoid damage.

  • Do not use aerosol sprays, bleach, or abrasive cleaners.

  • Ensure moisture does not get into any openings to avoid damage

  • Never spray cleanser directly on an item.

Parents are financially liable for any damages or lost items.  Laptops issued to current 6th and 7th grade students, attending Githens in the fall, will be catalogued during the first week of school in August.


Everyone have a fantastic week!
