BIG Chromebook News!
Technology Department has decided to allow students to keep possession of their assigned Chromebook over the summer. While still property of West Clermont Local School District, the devices will provide far greater benefits to our students if allowed to use them over the summer. Of course, students should continue to bring their devices to school each day, fully charged, until directed to do otherwise by building staff. Students should also be prepared to bring their devices to school for the beginning of the 2018-2019 school year on August, 15, 2018, fully charged and ready to go. Please see the attached document for more information! If you think that you may be moving over the summer and/or not returning to WCMS please have your student turn in their chrome books on May 30th to our front office! /userfiles/922/my files/2018 summer student chrome books.pdf?id=11368
