Student accounts will be assigned fees if the items are not turned in.  Replacement charges are currently $216 for the Chromebook and $20 for chargers.  Seniors should have turned in their Chromebooks already, but if not must turn it in either tomorrow or at Graduation Practice.  If your student is planning on leaving the district or going to Tri-County then have them turn theirs in as well on Monday. Students in other grades will keep their Chromebooks over summer and bring them back ready to use in August.
