Excellence for Every Child
After holding eleven different laptop deployment events and servicing over 900 families last week, we still have about 75 students who still have not gone through deployment. I understand if this is not something you want for your child or there are extenuating circumstances that cause scheduling conflicts which make it difficult to attend. Last week, I had to take off from work to attend one of my children’s functions, so I get it. Some folks have tried to pop in during the day to do this. Please understand deployment is more than just care and responsibility of the device, but a conversation about expectations, how we plan to support your kids, and how you can help. We do not have a schedule that allows for drop-in appointments! In addition, as you know, checking out an $800 computer is more than just picking it up. The proper paperwork must be completed, any bills for damages cleared, and students must log-in to complete the process. This takes the full hour even with a full staff working it. To accommodate our remaining families, Mr. Carter and I will come in early and stay late to hold three special Computer Deployments sessions this Wednesday, August 16th:
We shortened it to an hour to get you in and get the vital info, which requires the full time, so please be present for the start times. We will take care of the rest with students during the school day. We hope this helps meet the needs of our remaining families! Most schools host 2-3 deployments, and by the end of the day on Wednesday, we will have completed 14. After this date and these provisions, we will not hold any more deployments. If you are still wanting a laptop for your child, please make arrangements to attend one of the three final sessions. Hope to see you on Wednesday!
